Scandinavian Wildlife Park

Randers Rainforest
When stepping into Randers Regnskov you immediately find yourself being in a completely different world where the air is warm and humid and filled with the sounds of cascading waterfalls and calls from the many free-living monkeys and birds. Bats and sloths are hanging in the canopies right above you, while the leafcutter ants are working untiringly dragging heavy pieces of leafs down to their underground resident. Nearby the manatees swim calmly among the catfish and pacus, seemingly without a care in their life. Randers Regnskov is a living ecosystem under constant change which is why there is always something new to experience – a unique place for children and adults of all ages.
