If you are travelling with children in the South of Iceland the petting zoo at Slakki is simply a perfect place to visit.
It has everything a proper petting 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 a pair of rather grumpy turkeys that apparently didn´t being liked reminded about Christmas.
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.
How to get there?
From Reykjavik travel on road number 1, turn on road 35 and then on road 31 until you see a sign for the petting zoo.
