Vuosseli ski trail around Ruka's Vuosselijärvi and Rokova area has been turned into a year-round multi-purpous outdoor trail, and the multi-use will be fully at use by late autumn 2023. In addition to skiing, you can ride a fatbike and walk on the route. Each mode of transport is assigned its own "lanes" and the joint responsibility of route users is emphasized.
Joint use will be successful with a positive attitude towards the multi-use of the route and respect for other users. However, during the testing phase, the modes of transportation were limited so that only skiing is allowed on the section between the newest underpass and Uuttusuo. On the rest of the route, in addition to skiing, you can ride a fatbike and walk. More information about the multi-use will be delivered by late autumn 2023.
Dogs are not allowed on Vuosseli multi-use trail.
In the Vuosseli outdoor trail project, the city of Kuusamo invested in Ruka to convert Vuosseli's old skitrail into a year-round outdoor trail with the support of the European Rural Development Fund managed by the North Ostrobothnia ELY Center. The approved funding for the project is 819 896 €, divided as follows: EU 344 356 €, State 299 571 € and the city of Kuusamo 245 969 €. The three-year project will be completed in 2023.
