Getting here

There are several ways to get from Helsinki to Ruka, depending on how you wish to travel.

By air from Helsinki to Kuusamo

Finnair flies from Helsinki to Kuusamo throughout the year, twice a day during winter season and even four times a day on busiest days. Lufthansa flies from Frankfurt to Kuusamo and return on Saturdays during December-March.

The flight takes about an hour and travellers are met at the airport in Kuusamo by a Airport Bus. Return trip from Ruka village to the airport starts 1 h 45 min before the departure of the flight, duration 30 min. The SkiBus is the easiest way for downhill skiers to reach the village from Kuusamo centre. Ruka SkiBus also provides a free service around Ruka Ski Resort. Please note, for a taxi from the Airport to Ruka it is recomended to make a booking in advance.

By car

Ruka is 800 km from Helsinki by the shortest road route. Helsinki and Kuusamo are connected by highways E75 and 5, or you can travel via the city of Oulu. There are plenty of round-the-clock service stations and food outlets along the way. The best place to leave your car is the underground car park in Ruka, located in the pedestrianized town centre. The car park is within walking distance of Ruka and just 20 metres from the slopes. Parking costs 1,5 euro per hour or 15 euros for the whole day.

By train and bus

There are three railway stations located near Ruka – Oulu, Rovaniemi, and Kemijärvi. All of them are easy to reach by train from Helsinki. You can find a detailed timetable showing all trains on the Finnish Railways (VR) website. Prior to booking your train tickets, we recommed checking the coach services operating from Oulu and Rovaniemi to Kuusamo and the ski coach from Oulu ro Ruka. The bus and coach station in in both Oulu and Rovaniemi is couple of minutes walk from the railway station. Ruka can be reached by a local bus which runs from Kuusamo. 

A mixed rail-and-car option is also available. Cars are loaded onto a night train which takes them from Helsinki to Kemijärvi, so that drivers and passengers can get some sleep and continue their journey in the morning.

By ski coach from Oulu

Each Saturday from November to April, a special coach for ski trippers travels from Oulu to Ruka. The service departs from Oulu at 07:45 and starts back to Oulu at 17:00.
