The Polar Bear Track
2 days, 1 night- 200-300 km – Rovaniemi – Ranua – Rovaniemi
A true arctic adventure must include an encounter with a Polar Bear, right? We steer the snowmobiles towards the village of Ranua, known for its Arctic Wildlife Park, habitat of some 200 wild animals. One highlight of the trip will be looking the Polar Bear in the eye as we visit them “backstage” in their feeding cave. You can see from his gaze, he really is at the top of the food chain…
DAY 1 10:00 Ready, steady, go!
We meet up at the safari house to pack the snowmobiles and get you proper driving gear. The snowmobile adventure starts with safety and driving instructions. We start easy going, so that you get used to the snowmobiles. Lunch is enjoyed in a simple cottage or by a campfire. In the evening we reach our accommodation – a simple hotel in the village of Ranua. Dinner is just right before early bedtime, we have an early date with the Polar Bear tomorrow.
DAY 2 Date with a Polar Bear
We have an early breakfast and drive the couple of kilometers to the gates of the wildlife park, where we meet the animal keeper. She will take us to the Polar Bear’s enclosure and let us observe as the mighty bears have breakfast. The animal keeper will tell us about this large mammal, an endangered species, the king of the arctic. After a while we leave the bears and continue on snowmobiles. In case you want to have an independent tour in the park, this can be done before we leave. The afternoon is spent driving back to the snowmobile park in Rovaniemi, where your adventure ends. Lunch is served wilderness style en route.
