A walking tour is one of the best things to do in the summertime. Explore the beauties of this protected natural wilderness by following a forest path, admiring Kuusamo from the peak of Ruka Ski Resort or lingering on the shore of a forest lake. We have a range of walking options, from one-day hikes to the 80 km Karhunkierros (Bear’s Trail). The choice is yours. Other summer pleasures include mountain bike tours, fishing, rafting and canoeing. All of them offer excitement, a powerful adrenaline rush, and experiences you will never forget.
Weekly programmes in the summer
We have several special summer weekly programmes available from the 1 June to 30 September. You can join a programme as an individual, and family participation works even better. Options include rafting, visits to a reindeer and husky farm, canoeing, and walking tours. Programme costs include instruction and equipment lease, and booking is open until 16:00 on the previous day. The timetable and booking are available at the Travel Shop. You need never fear boredom on a rainy day in Kuusamo: the spa centre, karaoke club, cooking master classes, and yoga sauna are just a few of the dozens of exciting activities on offer.
