Have you visited Ranua? It is a popular day trip destination from Rovaniemi since it is easy to reach by bus or car. The town is especially known for the wildlife park @ranuazoo where you can find the only polar bears in Finland! 🤍 If you wish to stay overnight you can do that for example in the glass igloos at @arcticfoxigloos 😍
