Visit the zoo, experience the thrilling rides, and spend time enjoying the outdoors with activities for all ages at Furuviksparken. The park is especially famous for its primate preservation program and chimpanzees, gorillas, and other similar species are one of its main attractions. Choose from a selection of restaurants on site, or bring your own food and have a picnic. If you want to prolong your visit, consider a stay in the park's camping area, with access to kitchen, showers, a barbeque area, and other amenities. On a warm day, take a dip in the lake, or one of many swimming pools. The admission fee to the park includes the pool area, but rides are paid for separately. Reserve accommodation by phone.
