Operator's View

"Having visited Ranua myself, I can safely say that it is a unique destination in Lapland, offering animal encounters at the Wildlife Park which are unforgettable. Feeding the polar bears is something that I will never forget. The fact that this experience can be combined with the likes of husky safaris, snowmobiling and horse-drawn sleigh rides in the snow, is also rather special. I also found the accommodation really appealing and very comfortable – it is spacious, airy and modern but also retains a cosy charm."
Amy Walkington-Gray
