Ranua is a town in Finnish Lapland. The wildlife park Ranua Zoo is by far the biggest attraction in Ranua. In fact many travel packages from overseas to the Santa Claus attractions in Rovaniemi also include a day trip to the zoo.

Ranua is situated 80 km (1 hour) south of Rovaniemi and 160 km (2 hours) northeast of Oulu, and is thus a possible day or half day trip destination from these cities. It is very likely that you will see reindeer crossing or walking next to the highway so you need to be vigilant not to crash into one, especially in the winter when the roads are slippery.
