Plan your visit
Järvzoo is open all days throughout the year. All seasons have their delight. Spring, when the spring sun warms the ground back up, the grass sprouts and the animals’ young are born. Summer, when the bears cool off in the pool and the park is full of activities. Autumn, when the clover animals have magnificent horns and the forest bursts of colors. Winter, when the snow is sparkling, and the animals are at their finest in their winter fur.
Good to know
At Järvzoo you will walk around the park along a three-kilometer-long wooden pavement without stairs. Since the zoo is built on a mountain, it slopes quite steeply in some places. There are plenty of rest areas around the park where you can rest for a while if needed.
- Accessibility for people with disabilities may be restricted in some places. Therefore, it may be good to have someone to help you. There is a disabled toilet in the entrance building. Please contact us before the visit if you would like more information.
Take your time. The animal enclosures are large, so you may not see the animals right away. Please use binoculars, if you don’t have your own you can rent a pair from us.
Carts can be rented at the entrance so you can easily bring your baggage around the park. Strollers can of course be brought along.
Be sure to watch when the animals are fed. During feeding, the animal keepers tell you about the animals, their eating habits, characteristics and other peculiarities.
Dogs and other pets are not allowed to enter the zoo, but they are welcome to wait in our dog yard, which is for visitors’ dogs. There are 3 places in the dog yard, and they cost SEK 30 / piece to rent. You pay the fee when you purchase your entrance ticket. The owner is responsible for ensuring that the dog has water and something to lie in etc.
Free parking is available next to the park. The parking lot is common to guests to Järvzoo, Bergshotellet, Järvsöbacken and Järvsö Bergcykelpark. There is no specific disabled parking space at Järvzoo but it is possible to drive all the way to the entrance and drop off the disabled person there and then park the car in the regular parking lot.
There is a smoking ban throughout the zoo. The smoking area is outside the entrance only and we are grateful for the respect shown to our animals and other visitors.
Feeding the animals is not allowed. Our animals have a carefully controlled diet and can become seriously ill if fed incorrectly.
The wooden pavement goes through beautiful unspoilt forest nature that we would like to preserve. We therefore ask you to throw any garbage in the trash cans in the zoo.
For visitors to Järvzoo and the Predators’ Center there is a charging pole for electric cars. The charging station is located at the top parking lot.
