Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Too Much money paid for the transfer considering that the tickets for the zoo are not so expensive, I would not recommend at all. The guide moreover was not friendly at all

We went with Nordic Unique Travels which is great they pick you up and bring you back and will accompany you if you like. It is a very natural setting for Tyne animals which is lovely - many are hibernating now or were not out - which is fine but one should expect that or you may be disappointed. The food where we ate was very traditional - so is a challenge if you don’t eat thing such as reindeer. The animals are very similar to those found in Canada with some exceptions. The setting is beautiful and they keep you on a path through the trees. There is a small hotel if you are driving and a small gift shop as well as another restaurant and during warmer times it looked as if there were food stations throughout the zoo.

I really enjoyed our visit and being in November it was really quiet. The animals have a lot of space and are not always visible but be patient and quiet and you will see them. A nice experience to see animals with some autonomy.

I went with a friend. The walkways are easy to follow and to navigate if like me, you have some mobility issues, are in a wheelchair or have children in buggies.
We had a leisurely walk round the park and saw so many beautiful animals in excellent enclosures.

Loved the snowy owls in their fluffy carpet slippers, the golden eagles are magnificent and the grumpy-looking Pallas cat is lovely. The wolverines don't look like Hugh Jackman though.

We didn't see the bears but apart from this we had a really great experience.

This would be an awesome place to visit during the winter/ colder months of the year, I went in the height of summer when it was 34 deg C, most of the animals were away in their shelters. The only few spotted were the owls and a solitary wolf.

Great zoo with a selection of lappish animals. Nice circular walk which takes 2-3 hrs. The temperature was around -2 and the visibility of aninals was high. Most enclosures were very spacious and the quality was really good.

One hour from Rovaniemi on bus, you find this lovely zoo with polar bears, brown bears, wild boars, deer, reindeer, moose, arctic foxes, eagles, all kinds of owls, wolves, wolverines, lynx and dholes, among other animals. An amazing experience. No need to book a tour guide, just take a bus from Rovaniemi bus station and pay for your ticket at the ticket office (or book online). A few nice places around to have lunch or dinner too.

The animals we could see were lovely. Some of them weren't there cause of winter sleep. The view sites were usually pretty well position except for foxes which were completely dislocated from view.
