Ruka Polar Night Light Festival

In January 2024 Ruka ski resort and Ruka Village will be illuminated for the seventh time by Polar Night Light Festival

The festival is brought to our guests by Sun Effects, Ruka Ski Resort and Ruka-Kuusamo Tourist Association to cheer up people in the middle of dark winter with light artworks. As these artworks glow in the magical winter scenery of Kuusamo, going out to the cold feels like an adventure. Some of these light artworks can also be experienced on skis and stiga-racers, during the evenings of Sat-Thu, and some by foot at the Ruka Village.

The event is free of charge, but some of the lights are placed on the ski slope. You can see and experience the whole event best by skiing on the Kuru slope. The gondola also takes you to the top of Saarua, from where you can admire the lights of Kuru.

Welcome to enjoy the light art in the middle of our uniquely gorgeous northern landscape!
