8. Lapland Full Day Tour with Lunch & Dinner
After being picked up from your hotel, head out to Ranua Zoo, the northernmost zoo in the world. See arctic foxes, polar bears (the only ones in Finland), minks, otters, geese, and 50 other northern animal species. Enjoy time to meet the animals and walk approximately 2.5km through magical Lappish forest. Just as you start to get chilly, head to a cozy restaurant to enjoy a delicious lunch. After lunch, a professional local guide will help you get around and show you the best souvenir shops and places to buy authentic Lapland products.
Continue your Lappish wilderness experience by going to a traditional wood-burning sauna. Whilst you wait approximately an hour for the sauna to heat, spend some quality time outdoors fishing or playing games. For those who prefer to stay indoors, play a logic game, based on the story of Santa Claus and the history of elves. Enjoy a relaxing experience and take the option to jump into a private Arctic lake to cool down. Then, repeat the whole process again. Interchanging warm and cold intervals has many health benefits. It improves your circulation, stabilizes your heart pressure, and helps you relieve stress and anxiety.
Once the hot and cold sauna experience is finished, cuddle up in the cottage and help yourself to some tasty blazed salmon cooked over an open fire.
