The holiday village is buzzing with activities all year round!

Ranua Wildlife Park, located next to Gulo Gulo, offers plenty of activities for independent holidays. Your ticket entitles you to visit the Wildlife Park as many times as you wish during your stay.

Answer to the call of the wild by booking your safari, led by Wildlife Safaris located in the Wildlife Park. Wildlife Safaris organise safe and exciting safaris in all seasons and to suit all tastes. The service range includes short excursions nearby or demanding safaris deep into the wilderness. Contact us and let us create just the kind of safari you have always dreamed about!

Annual events in Ranua offer an exotic twist to your holiday. Further information on other activities and events on offer in the municipality is available at

Ranua is only one hour’s drive away from RovaniemiKuusamoKemiIso-Syöte and Ouluare all within reach on a pleasant day trip. Gulo Gulo offers its guests experiences of a lifetime!

Be amazed at the extremes of the Arctic nature on wilderness safaris!

Experience the extremes of Arctic nature in full in Ranua: months of bright summer nights, the blazing colours of autumn, the polar night and the mystic dusk of early winter, flaming northern lights in mid-winter, blinding white snow fields in late winter and the powerful transformation of spring into a new summer.

Wildlife Safaris, who operate on the Wildlife Park, offer safe intensive experiences in the wilderness for visitors all year round. Build your tailor-made excursion to the wilderness around a traditional reindeer safari, a modern snowmobile safari or enjoy the speed of a sled pulled by our energetic huskies.

Seize the opportunity to ski, go snowshoe walking, go fishing or spend an unforgettable night in the wilderness.

Our thousands of visitors vow that without first-hand experience of the wonders of the Arctic nature, one’s horizons can be rather limited. Many guests coming from urban environments feel that our silence – only broken by the sounds of nature – is a spiritual, purifying experience.

We will do our best to make your experience unforgettable and empowering.
