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.”
All daily departures are available throughout the winter season, 1.12.2019 – 31.3.2020, or due to prevailing weather and snow conditions. Daily Departures are operated for min 2 persons paying the adult fare (2 persons / snowmobile). Private excursions are available for min 6 persons (adult fare 2 persons / snowmobile).
Our snowmobiles are locally produced, BRP Lynx Rave, Xtrim and Boondocker–models. We have selected this model, as they are extremely comfortable to drive and as they are gentle to the environment, they are practically smoke and smell free.
Children travel in a sledge pulled by the guide’s snowmobile. In case a child prefers to travel as a passenger of a snowmobile, he / she must be tall enough to reach the handles and treads and strong enough to hold on tight. When a child travels on the snowmobile and not in a sledge pulled by a snowmobile, adult price (2 person / snowmobile) applies.
The snowmobiles and you as the snowmobile driver or passenger are covered by our insurance. The self-liability on damage of snowmobiles is max. 1 000 € / snowmobile. With a self-liability waiver (30 €) you reduce the self-liability to max 300 € / snowmobile. Every safari starts with instructions on driving and safety.
You will always be kitted with proper winter gear: thermal overall, boots, woollen socks, balaclavas and gloves or mittens for our safaris and excursions. Your own jacket and shoes remain at the safari house during the tour.
