Enjoy the beautiful winter scenery, driving through the snowy forests and over ice-covered lakes. After approx 1,5 hour drive, we are back to Ranua Wildlife Park and it is time to taste the unique atmosphere on our lunch break, enjoying the lunch by an open fire. After the meal, feel the warm welcome of the eagerly awaiting dog sled teams of Husky Park. Having received instructions as to how to steer the dog sled team, join us for a three kilometre-long husky safari.(It is also possible to upgrade the husky safari to 1 hour/2 hour safari!) From the Husky Park it is only a short walk back to Holiday Village, where a relaxing sauna and a mouth-watering dinner await you before a good night’s sleep.
