History of the guesthouse

Arctic Guesthouse & Igloos is a family-run business in Ranua, which runs its business in facilities of the legendary Gasthaus Ranua that has been at service ever since the 1940s. Interesting details remains of the history of that time. For example, the reinforcement of the foundations of the main building is made of rifle barrels.

There has been a farm and an Esso gas station in the yard. The main building was once home to the SYP Bank and there had been also a shop / kiosk.
