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!

You will receive a voucher as a confirmation via e-mail which you will need to bring with you for your trip. You will always get a voucher by email: REMEMBER TO PRINT IT OUT AND BRING IT ALONG OR MAKE SURE THAT YOU CAN SHOW IT ON YOUR ELECTRONIC DEVICE!


- Do i have to book in advance?


There are a few different ways you can book our trips. First of all, you can book almost all our trips right here on our website. There is a booking window on each tour page and we do recommend that you book and pay for your trip there, preferably in good time as we keep our groups small and some tours tend to sell out.

If the trip you would like to book is not bookable online, you can call or email our office directly, the phone number is +358 40 744 2567. Another way is to send us an e-mail with an inquiry through our contact form.

This is a nice question. We ask all participants to be ready from the start of the pickup time indicated in the voucher. Please be at your assigned location at the start time that you chose when booking the tour.

Here you should wait for your guide. Have your email and phone number listed with us so we can contact you if we run into any trouble finding you.


- How to dress right and feel comfortable in Winter?


1. Start with thermal underwear and warm socks.

2. If it’s really cold, –20 or below, wear an additional fleece layer on top of your thermals. Another pair of socks, preferably woolly or thermal, will keep your feet warm.

3. Wear pants with thermal lining. Don’t underestimate the importance of a neck warmer or a scarf. Slip into your winter boots and do them up well.

4. Almost done! Throw on your winter jacket, put on a warm hat and thermal gloves. Don’t forget to tuck your gloves into your sleeves and zip your jacket ALL the way up

Nordic Adventures is happy to tell you where you can rent costumes if there is such a need!

Most of our tours (please see specifications under each tour) include transfers from accommodation in Rovaniemi city area. It is included in the adventure price.

The pick up is usually 5-20 min before the start of the safari (time in your voucher). Transportation back is immediately after the end of the safari.

We try to provide exact pickup time one day before the start of the tour by email or text message/whats-app, which is why it is important that you provide your valid email and phone number when booking a tour.

Snowing day in Ranua Zoo

March 28, 2019


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!

Wonderful experience

December 9, 2018


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.

The place is amazing, tourist guides did a good job

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!
