Guided tour in the Wildlife Park

Departure daily at 14:00 (starting from Nov 1st)

75 € / person (children 0-2 yo. free of charge)
Min. 2 persons

There are about 50 species of wild animals and about 150 individual animals in the animal park. In the area of the park, the animals are placed in spacious enclosures in the middle of the forest along a 2.8 km long route.

An expert guide makes your visit to the Wildlife Park even more rewarding: they can tell you more details about the animals and their personalities, and answer all your questions about the animals’ lifestyles and arctic nature.

With a guide, you can admire some of the animals from a closer distance, as the guided tour includes also feeding snacks to the animals.

What’s included?
Thermal outfit, guidance in English. Please, note that the guided tour does not include tickets to the Wildlife Park. The tickets need to be purchased separately.

Please note,

Most of the route goes along easy-to-pass wooden footbridges, which offer an unobstructed view of the animal enclosures. Ranua Wildlife Park aims to produce multi-sensory experiences. Thanks to the audio guide and the experience boxes along the route, you can experience the park with all your senses. It is possible to travel the route with a wheelchair or rollator.

The first hill is steep and may cause difficulties during the winter. After that, the route becomes more accessible. You can borrow a wheelchair or rollator from the ticket office. There is an accessible toilet for people with a wheelchair, strollers, or a rollator both near the ticket office and in the middle of the park.

Private ice-swimming & sauna

Available from December to April

Minimum 2 persons, adults only

122 € / ADULT

Would you like to take a dip in almost 0-degree water? Guided ice-Swimming and Finnish Sauna experience offers you the possibility to try swimming in an ice-hole.

It has been studied that ice swimming has health-promoting effects; quick exposure to the cold not only refreshes, but also gets hormones going: the secretion of cortisol and endorphins increases. The cooling of the tissues and cortisol together prevent the feeling of pain, while endorphins create a feeling of pleasure.
