Monday, July 4 update: Reykjavik Park and Zoo

We spent today at the Family Park and Zoo. Now, this place won’t compete against some of the large and impressive zoos you may have visited in the United States or elsewhere. But the price doesn’t compete either:

Adults (anyone 13+): 840 krona, or about $6.80
Kids 5-12: 640 krona, or about $5
Kids under 5: 0 krona, or $0.

So a family of 4 with 2 kids who are, say, 8 and 10, can get into both the zoo and the park for under $25 total.

Let’s start with the zoo. The highlight is the seals, who have a large pool an enclosure right in the middle of the zoo area:
