  • facilities & activities

    Ranua Wildlife Park offers adventure on your doorstep.

In winter, most visitors move around the park by sledge (included in the entrance fee),a hugley fun way to enjoy the arctic views.

    Additional activities nearby include husky and reindeer sled rides as well as trips by snowmobile to see the Northern Lights. It's even rumoured that Santa has a secret cabin here, where he likes to relax before setting off on his Christmas delivery round...

  • dining

  • family

    As always, that magic combination of fun activities and wildlife is a sure hit with children of all ages, and you have both in spades here. Even younger children are welcome to join in the various activities (if they are too little for a snowmobile, they can be pulled behind by sled!) and they are sure to love the animals at the zoo. Naturally, the highlight is very likely to be a vsit to see Santa!

    The apartments, which sleep up to 6, are also very family friendly; a cosy retreat from the snow, with the option to self-cater if you are worried about the childrens appreciation of Finnish food.
