Educational program
The goal of establishing the zoo was to educate the general public about Icelandic farm animals, shed light on Icelandic farming practices, and strengthen the connections between people and animals.

The educational program department

There are courses on offer for kindergartens and primary schools, either in the form of guided tours or hands on learning. We really encourage teachers to actively take part on class trips and be readily accessible to the zoo’s staff. We therefore ask teachers to prepare well for their visit, so that the field trip can be as productive as possible education-wise.
The staff at the educational department are responsible for all bookings. It’s advised to plan visits well in advance. If a teacher foresees any issues that might occur due to limits on the number of participants or regarding accessibility, we strongly recommend that they get in touch with us. We’ll try to find a solution.

Get in touch by phone 411-5900 or send an email to namskeid@husdyragardur.is
