Polar Night Light Festival 2018

20.1.2018 - 4.2.2018
Some light in the Polar Night – the world's northernmost light festival lights up Ruka and Kuusamo

Located in the heart of Koillismaa, in January the Ruka-Kuusamo ski and leisure resort will be lit up like never before, as the whole fell will be illuminated for the second time by Polar Night Light Festival. This light art festival lits up Ruka and Kuusamo on 20th of January, and the lightshow shall continue until February 4th.

Behind this bright spot in the polar night are Sun Effects, Rukakeskus and Ruka-Kuusamo Tourist Association that cheer up people in the middle of darkness with light artworks. As these artworks glow against the magical wintery scenery of Kuusamo, going out to the cold feels a lot easier. Some of these light artworks can also be experienced on skis.

In addition to Ruka Village and slopes, we warmly recommend a visit to Kuusamo water tower as well. Lantern Park on the bottom of the tower and the light art exhibition together with the city views from up top are well worth seeing. Kuusamo water tower is open for visitors every day from 4pm to 8 pm until the 4th of February, no admission fee. 

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