What people are saying about Ranua

We had the most amazing day on Sunday at Ranua, our guide Jonathan was the BEST!!!! He is an asset to your team and he went above and beyond to make the whole day special for us. We had a great day at the zoo and learnt so much about the animals and also learnt so much about Finland on the route to the zoo thanks to Jonathan. After the zoo trip we had paid for the journey to be taken back to our resort, on the way back Jonathan stopped off at Santa Claus village and went out of his finished working day to show us around and teach us even more about the resort! He was so amazing, we bought him a gift at the martinni store just to say thank you. He is great and had made our whole trip with the day! Please pass on our thanks to him, he works with the wild for Lapland company. We will certainly be coming back!!

We had Bab as our guide and there were 3 of us with her. We were picked up from the hotel and dropped off directly in front of it. For this tour we rented the special overalls + shoes, which was definitely a great decision. Even at -10° we would be kept warm (and I get cold very quickly, even had warm feet!). It was a very nice trip, we saw some reindeer on the one-hour drive there and Bab told us a lot about Finland. During the park tour we also received a lot of information about the animals and we were even lucky enough to see polar bears and arctic foxes. Lunch was included and there was a small selection which was delicious. On the way back we were able to admire reindeer again.

Had a great time on this tour. The guides: Azzurra, Albert, and Stefanos, we’re brilliant. They were easy going and informative and had no issues takings lots of photos. 10/10
