Guided trips at the Zoo

What do animals eat for breakfast? How do you become a zoo keeper? How are endangered species protected? The Ähtäri Zoo keeper/guides are able to answer all your questions and tell you about the animal species as well as individual animals. The guides are actively involved in caring for the animals and are, therefore, able to tell stories about the life, food and what stimulate the inhabitants, as well as their mutual relationships. Such information, you will not get anywhere else! The guides also feed or stimulate the animals, so it is possible for the public to see even this side of life in the zoo.


Guide services available by request September-April:
