After being picked up directly from your accommodation and given warm clothing (if needed), your guide will drive you through Lapland nature to Ranua Wildlife Park. The one-hour drive to Ranua will already give you a chance to enjoy the landscapes of Lapland and try to spot some local wildlife along the way : it is not unusual to see reindeer or the gigantic moose along the road. As you are heading to your destination, your guide will answer any questions that you may have about Finland and Lapland to the best of their knowledge.
At the park you can follow the 2,5 km wooden board walks through the forest where you get to see all the arctic animals in one place. This is a rare opportunity to meet the local animals that reside in Lapland and in other parts of the Arctic. As you walk around the park, your guide will share with you their knowledge of the animals and other aspects of life in Lapland.
The animals you can spot in the Ranua Wildlife Park include the polar bears, brown bears (not in Winter though, as they are hibernating), predatory birds, owls, wild boars, musk oxen, otters, arctic foxes, wolves, wild reindeer, wolverines, moose…
At the end of the tour, you will enjoy a nice buffet lunch at the restaurant before returning to Rovaniemi with a great insight of arctic wildlife and the memory full of lovely animal pictures!
