All creatures great and small
The wildlife park allows you to meet a huge variety of Arctic animals and witness them at close quarters in their natural environment. There are bears, wolves, wolverine, musk oxen, wild boar, lynx, beavers, moose and many more mammals, alongside an array of reptiles and fabulous birds for you to enjoy glimpsing.
Ranua is part of the European Association of Zoos and Aquaria and follows their aim of conserving healthy populations of endangered species in wildlife parks, whilst also working to preserve their natural habitat. The park also takes in injured or orphaned animals with the aim of releasing them back into the wild, or caring for them if this cannot be achieved. The polar bears, European mink, wolverines, Arctic fox, common otters and musk oxen at Ranua are all part of the European Endangered Species Programme, meaning that they are the pedigree animals of their species and of huge significance.
Alongside the animals you’ll meet at the park, you’ll also have the chance to encounter huskies and reindeer if you choose to select those activities from the available options.
