Visit Ranua Zoo to see Finland's only polar bears in captivity near the Arctic Circle. The zoo is small because few species can live comfortably in the harsh environment. About 200 arctic animals call the zoo home, including lynx and wolves, and watching them play in the snow is a unique experience. The attraction is open year-round, even when the sun only appears for a couple of hours each day, and in the winter you can take a night safari through the habitats. Book a Ranua Wildlife Safari tour with a local guide to walk you through the habitats and to give you a chance to witness the animals feeding. Water-resistant winter clothing, lunch, a snowmobile ride, and transport to and from your hotel are all included in the safari package.

  • It was a cool rainy day, decidedly unsuited to visit a park so nice, but we still conternti we visited. The animals are many and I seemed to be treated with great care. They have ample space available surrounded by walkways that allow you to see the animals. Two super cute bears ... Gem that has been so nice to get closer to his sponte to the point where we were and the other bear enticed by the offer of food from the lady that she had with her spontaneous gymnastics!!! Many beautiful birds. Is to be seen.
