DH biking hub Ruka Bike Park

Up with a lift, down by bike. From the cottage to the slopes and on to conquering the fell. Ruka-Kuusamo provides the setting, equipment and landscape for diverse downhill biking. Trails for demanding customers and beginners, adults and kids, with a technical or casual focus.

DH biking, which is action-packed exercise in a stunning setting, is also environmentally friendly; a carbon-neutral lift takes you to the top and down you come by the force of gravity and your own muscle power. 

Ruka Bike Park trails

Ruka’s network of DH bike trails is continuously expanding. We have trails for bikers of all levels, and we never compromise on safety.

Ski passes for bikers

Taking your bike to the fell peak is wonderfully simple with the Village-2-Valley gondola and Village Express chair lift. You can buy a ski pass for bikers in advance online or in Ruka from self-service kiosks or the service counter of the Piste rental shop.

DH bike hire

Ruka-Kuusamo offers high-quality and well maintained rental bikes that come with equipment, also for kids. You will be instructed on how to use the bike when renting.

Guided DH biking
