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. Choose to start, finish, or center your holiday on a trip to Ranua Zoo by using our Ranua planner.

Ranua Zoo reviews
The zoo was great. Too many animal species. Ride with huskies was amazing! BUT… the food at restaurant was very bad. Elk wasn’t tasty. And hygiene rules were zero.

Visited at night as part of a booked tour and in the day time. The combination allowed us to see more animals then if we had only visited in the day time. open fire was lovely to warm up and kids...

The zoo is well managed. Animals have been kept in wild as much as possible. Feeding of bears and wolves are worth watching. Parking is free and tickets are reasonable. Very nice spot for kids. A bit in a remote location though, a wonderful place to be.
This zoo was an absolute gem. The enclosures were quite large, yet they were designed to be accessable with great viewing opportunities. The animals all appeared contented and well cared for. Truly a well done job with the zoo.
