Experience the true magic of Lapland at Ranua

Do you love bright summer nights, frozen cloudberry marshes, the colours of fall, wonderful nature, northern lights, a sky of millions of stars, snowy winter, or peace and quiet? At Ranua, you can experience all of these!

Different seasons, different colours

In summer, nightless nights allow you to enjoy nature even throughout the night. How would a boat trip, hiking, or a night-time swimming excursion sound? At the end of summer, the cloudberry marshes glow orange, and the colour transfer to the leaves of the trees when the fall season arrives. Everyone should experience the incredible colour brilliance that the Finnish fall brings!

At the end of fall, the Northern lights start to colour the sky in the darkness of the winter. When the snow arrives, you can enjoy winter activities, skiing, snowmobiling, husky safaris, reindeer rides or even snowshoeing. The snow-covered trees make the landscape magically beautiful. Christmas time in Lapland is full of atmosphere and Santa Claus with his elves and reindeer is an experience for the whole family.
