Polar Night Light Festival 2021

22.1.2021 - 6.2.2021
Some light in the Polar Night – the world's northernmost light festival lights up Ruka.

In January the Ruka-Kuusamo ski resort and the whole fell will be illuminated for the fourth time by Polar Night Light Festival. This light art festival lits up Ruka on 22nd of January, and the lightshow shall continue until February 6th.

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.

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