Ruka consists of four peaks, after which the Ruka Slopes have been partially named: Pessari, Saarua, Ruka (Front Slopes and Vuosseli) and Masto.
In the summer, the Ruka area has plenty of marked day trip trails: Rukan ympärysreitti circular trail and the Rukatunturi, Kalliolampi and Kivilampi trails. With the exception of the Rukatunturi Trail, these trails are ski trails in the winter.
In June–September, you can reach the Ruka peak with the scenic gondola and head down the slopes either on foot or on the summer sled track.
There are two multi-purpose all-year trails in the Masto area: an accessible trail and the Juhannuskallio trail/snowshoe trail. The starting point of these trails can be accessed by car all year round.
In winter, you can reach Ruka peak with a valid ski pass, skiing or snowboarding or by travelling on foot with the Village-2-Valley gondola.
In addition, there is a snowshoe path to Saarua peak that is 1 kilometre (from the Village-2-Valley gondola’s top station) or 1.5 kilometres (from Ruka village).
