Winter in Ranua
The first snow often falls already during late autumn, while the permanent snow comes in November-December. Green and sometimes magenta coloured Northern Lights appear to the sky. Ranua is actually perfectly located for spotting the Northern Lights!
The arctic nature presents beautifully in the polar darkness. The arctic nature with lots of snow starts the winter activities season; cross-country skiing, snowmobile rides, husky safaris, reindeer sledding and snowshoe hiking.
