Today the major family attraction in the south of Norway, Kristiansand Dyrepark has been billed by some as Norway's Disneyland. It's no Disneyland, but it does provide summer amusements for the area. The highlight is Nordisk Vilmark, a simulated wilderness area where you can walk on boardwalks over the habitats of wolverines, lynx, wolves, and moose. The zoo itself contains many exotic specimens, including some Arctic species, and diverse animals roam in large enclosures. The park covers an area of 60 hectares (148 acres). Children should delight in the Kardemomme by (Cardamom town), a re-created "town" suggesting a hamlet in Africa. The town is based on a well-known children's story by Thorbjørn Egner, and famous characters from Egner's story stroll about, greeting visitors. A pirate ship, a circus, a play land, giraffes, a farm, and other amusements, including a bobsled track and water slide, also await you here.
