Konijänkä's petting zoo

Finland's most varied petting zoo

Konijänkä's petting zoo offers the most memorable experience to all ages: from toddlers to grandparents. Situated In Äkäslompolo, Ylläs.

In Konijänkä's petting zoo you will find a lot of familiar farm animals as well as some more exotic creatures.


Something for everyone

As well as all of the adorable animals we have many things for the whole family to do, regardless of age. At the petting zoo we have our Laavu: a traditional Lapland shelter where you can bbq some sausages, there is also the popular sledging hill 'Mount Konijänkä'. In the summer months we also have a children's playpark and giant trampoline.

We offer a wide range of programs for children.  The little ones love our pony rides and in the winter we have a horse drawn sled that can take the entire family for a ride. 


Lunch and snacks

At our petting zoo you don't need to go hungry. Our cafe is open all year round serving both hot and cold food, like tasty meatballs, deep pan pizzas, sausage baskets, freshly baked buns and much much more. Stop by on your skiing trip for a nice hot smoked-reindeer soup!



Konijänkä's petting zoo is a great place for groups, schools, work outings or day visits. We can tailor the visit to suit you! Just get in touch.

Come and enjoy our petting zoo!
