Are you ready for a once-in-a-lifetime adventure to witness the mesmerizing beauty of Arctic wildlife? Join us on a guided tour of Ranua Wildlife Park - the northernmost zoo in the world!
Imagine stepping into a winter wonderland where snowflakes gently fall from the sky and the crisp air fills your lungs. You are surrounded by the serene beauty of Lapland, where forests of tall trees and frozen lakes stretch as far as the eye can see. And in the midst of this peaceful landscape lies the Ranua Wildlife Park, home to some of the most majestic creatures on the planet.
As we pick you up from your hotel, get ready to embark on a journey through the picturesque forests of Lapland. Our comfortable minivans or small buses will take you to the park, where you will have the opportunity to witness over 50+ different animal species, each living in their natural habitat.
From majestic polar bears to playful gray wolves, owls, geese, foxes, lynxes, minks, and brown bears, you will get to experience firsthand the magic of Lapland's wildlife. With our expert guides leading the way, you'll see these magnificent creatures in their natural environments, doing what they do best - whether it's eating, grooming or simply lounging around.
As you explore the park, your knowledgeable guide shares fascinating insights into the animals' behavior and habitats. You'll learn about how they adapt to the harsh arctic climate and how they coexist with other species in this unique ecosystem.
After the guided zoo tour, you will be treated to a scrumptious buffet lunch, where you can savor traditional Lappish lunch and take in the stunning scenery around you. And that's not all - if there is time left, we will also take you to visit the official Fazer sweets shop and souvenir shops, where you can indulge in some shopping for souvenirs to remember this experience.
We specialize in small private tours, but if you're coming with a big group, we are more than happy to accommodate you all.
The Ranua Wildlife Park is nestled in an Arctic forest, an hour's drive from the town of Rovaniemi. In the summer, the forest comes alive with the sounds of nature, providing the perfect backdrop for this unforgettable adventure.
We understand that some of our clients may prefer to experience the silence and solitude of Lapland's forests on their own. If you are one of them, rest assured that we have got you covered! Our guided tours are designed to cater to everyone's preferences. If you prefer to explore the zoo at your own pace, you are welcome to do so. All the aviaries and exhibits are clearly marked, and you can read about each animal species in detail on your own. This way, you can take your time to admire the beauty of the animals and the surroundings, without feeling rushed or distracted.
So what are you waiting for? Join us on this magical tour to witness the wonders of the Arctic wilderness, and take home memories that will last a lifetime!

Our tour guide Alex came to pick us up on time, drove us to Ranua Zoo and back. He helped us to get our head around the place, gave us lots of info and was very patient with our group with lots of children. Thank you Alex.
Perfect day. Our guide stania was very friendly and gave a lot of interresting details. Perfect. Thanks
We enjoy the day in this wildlife park full of polar animals. We were lucky enough to see brown bear just weak up from hibernation and the white fox also which you can see rarely as it camouflage in the snow. Our guide knew a lot about all the animals and it was very interesting listening to her. We also had a wonderful Finnish lunch included in the tour and time to visit the souvenirs shop after. On the way back we also had nice conversation about Finland and their customs and traditions. We really enjoyed the day! Thanks to Nordic adventure.
Nice tour! Our guide was very friendly, knows a lot about the animals
It's a very nice trip.We come from China and we see a lot of polar animals. thanks to Nordic Adventures.
Good experience for animal lovers :) Our guide Alex was very helpful and great driver(believe me you need it here)
From pickup to drop off everything went smoothly, the driver was very friendly and helpful and we all had a fantastic day.. highly recommend
We booked the full day adventure to the Ranua Zoo and Lappish evening in the wilderness with sauna, ice swimming and dinner. We enjoyed every minute from being picked up and driven out of town to the Zoo and spending the morning looking at the animals, having lunch and then back to our accommodation for some relaxation before being picked up again and being taken to a cute little cottage in the forest where we enjoyed a sauna and a dip into the ice lake. The lake was breathtaking (literally), but an amazing experience. Alex and his wife then prepared a beautiful dinner that we ate in the cosy cottage. They were wonderful hosts and lovely people. I would highly recommend this company and our time spent with them has been one of the highlights of our trip.
We're all very excited. Our guides, Alex and Andrew made the boring snowy day became a surprising and intriguing result.
I really enjoyed the Ranua Zoo tour with Alex who is friendly and enthusiastic. He is keen to introduce the animals to us and even set a fire to warm us and taught us how to cut wood, it was fun! We were able to see brown bear, polar bears owl among others. Thumb up to Alex!
