Your date with the Polar Bear takes place back-stage, where their feeding and sleeping area is. You are safely at the other side of the fence, but just a couple of metres away. While the Polar Bear has his breakfast, the animal keeper will provide you with interesting information on the White King of the Arctic.

This upgrade is available on Mondays and Wednesdays at 08:00, at the feeding times of the Polar Bears. 

What we say about this tour:  

“We have great respect for wildlife and appreciate the way wildlife is treated and displayed at Ranua Wildlife Park, also many injured specimen have found a safe home at the wildlife park. The walk through the park is about 2,5 km and I suggest you take it slow and enjoy the inhabitants. They live in large enclosures, so sometimes you might need to wait a while to spot them, just like in the nature. 

We would recommend this excursion for everyone. There are toboggans, so small children who might not be able to walk the path, can be seated in toboggans.”
