Reykjavík’s odd little zoo, which opened in 1990, is one of the few in the world that concentrates on domestic animals. It’s kind of like one big petting zoo, with sheep, horses, cattle, pigs, goats, reindeer, and mink. An animal petting schedule is posted each day—foxes at midday—and pony rides begin at 2pm. There are also enclosures with wild native species, such as the Arctic fox, the only indigenous land mammal. The aquarium, opened in 2004, holds seals and fish native to the North Atlantic. The Family Park is surefire children’s entertainment, with boats, a go-cart driving school complete with traffic lights, and a “science world,” where little ones can measure their screams in big decibels.
