The Holiday Village Gulo Gulo is situated in the Finnish city of Ranua and is just five minutes’ drive from its centre. The area is perfect for adventure and activity holidays all year round, but in winter, as the landscapes are blanketed in snow, the tours and excursions become even more exciting.

Why not take a snowshoe walk at dusk to search for the Northern Lights that frequently appear in this region?
