Wilderness adventure in Lapland for families with children

Wilderness adventure in Lapland for families with children

Ranua Zoo  is an animal park where Arctic animals have been placed in environments as natural for these species as possible. The visitors are walking on wooden bridges appr. 2,5 kilometres. Alltogether there are 50 species of animals living in this zoo and 200 individual animals. You'll see for example a polar bear, an elk, a wolverin, a lynx, a bear, an otter, a beaver and an eagle owl. Open every day 1.6.-31.8. from  9am -7pm.

Your modern family apartment is located in GuloGulo holiday village next to the zoom. There is an own kitchen, dishware and sauna.

Lapiosalmi wilderness travel center  is a place, where the whole family feels comfortable. There are short and long hiking trails, canoes, rowing boats, angling and more serious fishing, sauna, swimming.  

Your cottage is located on a hill with a lakeview. It has an own kitchen, dishware and a shared sauna and shower room with the next door neighbours. 

Korouma canyon is the sightseeing of the Posio.  Breathtaking landscape of Korouoma was formed several millions years ago. The area's landscape is exceptionally rugged and grand. The natural landscape ranges from sheer rockcliffs to lush groves and flood meadows along Korojoki River. You do not have to take the 30 or 20 km trails to be able to see the landscape. Drive to the Saukkokallio gate and hike down to the Koro river and Piippukallio cliff. Even children can hike it down and back up.

In Posio there is also the shop and factory outlet of Pentik, a famous Finnish designer of home textiles and tableware. 

Oulanka National Park   is one of the most beautiful national parks in Finland. It has unique fauna, flowing waters, high hills and river valleys. The differences in altitude are high.  You'll get 14km down the river by a rubber raft. The smallest children will sit in the middle. You will start from a rapid with classification I and after training get to the rapids Peurakoski and Saarikoski with classification II and last but not least Harjakoski with classification III in which you cannot avoid getting a bit wet. Quiet waters are paddled but for the lake legs there is an electrical motor.
