NORWAY - KRISTIANSAND ZOO DYREPARKEN part three | twoplustwocrew



NORWAY SUMMER HOLIDAY - part three.

We had a great day out at Kristiansand Zoo and Amusement park in Norway. Its called Dyreparken. Its 11kms (6 miles) outside Kristiansand and its open from Easter to mid October.

This place is massive!!! 150 acres - so wear comfy shoes! a full on day of theme rides, animal shows (we loved the squirrel monkeys who tried to grab our go pro) and they even have a full on pirate village with staged battles! with a funfair thrown in!

Really one day at the park is not enough but your kids will definitely sleep well after a day here...ours did...they were wiped out by all the excitement.

NORWAY - FAMILY RUNNING & SWIMMING FUN part two | twoplustwocrew



Had the crazy idea of going for a family run which ended up as a blueberry and wild strawberry picking, moaning, crawling, climbing and finally swimming adventure while Sam just ran off and left us trailing behind! Nice scenic run through the forest, loads of wild flowers, very pretty here on Tromoy. I am sure we didn't break any records but it was good to get out and stretch the legs. Sometimes it's hard work to get everyone motivated to do something (put shoes on etc etc.)but it ended up with everyone getting a little exercise so mission accomplished!

FLYING TO NORWAY - SUMMER HOLIDAY FUN - Trom√ły day one | twoplustwocrew





We're off to Norway again for some summer adventures! We flew from Gatwick on Norwegian Airlines to Torp Sandiford in Southern Norway on £30 bargain flights! Hired a car at the airport and plugged in the Garmin and drove down to Alve on Tromoy Island where our friend has a small cottage. We were firstly very lucky to be invited back and secondly the weather was stunning.  Swimming and freedom for the kids usually means a relaxing time for us parents...yipee!!! Cooked up some local norweigan fish cakes for dinner and picked wild blueberries for dessert. Yum

Norway summer holiday - Dyreparken zoo Kristiansand

Next adventure on our Norway summer holiday, Massive day at the Kristiansand zoo (dyreparken) This place is big! really need more than 1 day. It's a combination of zoo, amusement park and themed areas.

A cheeky squirrel monkey tried to steal the go pro, we got soaked on the log plume ride and watched the cheetah sprint for their lunch. If you are in Norway definitely worth a visit, mixture of rides and zoo kept everyone interested for the whole day.  There were whole areas we didn't even get to. There is a pirate themed self catering hotel attached that looked pretty cool, you could get a pirate ship ride direct to the zoo/waterpark We were meant to go to the attached waterpark but had to go the next day as we were shattered.
