Adventures in Ruka and Kuusamo

Action for the whole family

The fabulous nature around Ruka makes it a place to enjoy all the year round. Discover the explorer inside yourself: visit Kuusamo’s landscapes in summer and in winter. The experience will make you want to come back here again and again.

People come to Kuusamo in winter for the excellent snow and pure mountain air. A whole range of winter sports is available for your enjoyment, from downhill skiing and snowboarding to top-class snowmobiling on forests and ice covered lakes, not to mention husky safaris, reindeer sledge rides and much more.

In summer the region is famed for its exuberant greenery, sun, and fresh air. Kuusamo becomes a veritable paradise for hikers and fishermen in the summer months, but you can also try rafting on Kuusamo rivers and mountainbiking down Ruka Ski Resort slopes. Or just soak up the silence and magnificent calm of the wilderness.
