Arctic Fox Igloos
A visit to Ranua Zoo is perfected with an overnight stay in a glass igloo on the shore of the picturesque Lake Ranuanjärvi. The glass igloo is an outstanding accommodation allowing you to enjoy spectacular views of the starry skies and Northern Lights.
Despite the wilderness location, the igloos are fully equipped. Right next to the igloo is a wilderness lake beach with water that is definitely pure!
The Ranua glass igloos are the first igloos are Finland’s first igloos to have a private sauna and kitchenette.
The igloos were completed last autumn. Before the grand opening, the zoo put a post on Facebook asking people to say who they would spend a night with in a glass igloo. The post receives 1.3 million views. This appeal told us that the igloos would definitely be very popular. Indeed, that is exactly what happened.
In addition to appealing to regular tourists, the igloos and the magnificent location also inspired great interest among bloggers and film stars, who have wanted to experience the unique experiences of the igloos.
There are twenty glass igloos on the shores of the Ranuanjärvi Lake, two of which can also take two extra beds. Breakfasts and dinners are served in the reception building.

Accommodation is also available in the zoo’s own holiday village Gulo Gulo, the cabins of which are named after Arctic animals.
