The Ranua Wildlife Park is hidden in the Arctic forests, an hour's drive from downtown Rovaniemi. There are more than 50 species and more than 200 Arctic animals. This is a highly recommended stop for Finnish travel. Even if you don't see the Aurora, you can see the cute polar bear baby.
At the reception of Santa Claus Hotel, we booked a day trip to the Ranua Arctic Safari Park, chartered transfers and tickets, and the staff accompanied the whole process. I forgot the specific price. I just remember that it is not cheap. I suggest you go by car or Booking on the domestic platform will be more favorable. The journey takes about one hour and the ticket is only 14 euros per person.
There are very few cars on the road, both sides are forests. If the driver suddenly slows down, then remember to look at the front, there must be a reindeer wearing the road.
All kinds of pure white Arctic animals are the most special place here. The white owl is super cute, and the big head rotates in all directions in parallel. The eyeballs look at you greatly. I really want to have a pet like Harry Potter.
Birds and poultry after the visit, accompanied by our two hotel service staff (Finnish Miss Miss) to take a basket of animals to eat food, are fresh carrots, apples and other fruits and vegetables, they will take us all the way Visit the zoo, fulfill the obligation of the tour guide, and explain to us all kinds of interesting stories.
Basically, it takes at least two hours to walk around the zoo. There is a zoo restaurant next door to the ticket office. You can have some hot drinks and have some rest and rest. The ticket office is full of souvenirs, more than 80% are plush toys, the price is not expensive, cheaper than Santa Claus Village.
