If you are travelling with children in the South of Iceland the Iceland Petting zoo at Slakki is a perfect place to visit.

All the cute animals hang out at this petting zoo

It  has everything a proper petting zoo should have: super-cute kittens and puppies (that use every change they get to escape their hut), calves, piglets, mice, rabbits, parrots, fish, chickens and even  a pair of rather grumpy turkeys that apparently didn´t being liked reminded about Christmas.

It doesn´t get any cuter than this.

Sunny Day at the Iceland Petting Zoo

We visited the petting zoo on a sunny and hot day and were glad to get the change to go indoors and play a bit of mini golf and get some ice-cream. For the really young children there is a a small playground. So yes, if you are travelling in Iceland with your children or just love animals you should check out the petting zoo at Slakki.
