Summer at Ruka-Kuusamo

A wonderful summer vacation at Horse's Butt Lake

Kuusamo is famous for its natural beauty - and for some unfortunately named places. We hold the highest podium in Finland in the amount of the most poorly named locations. We have Horse's Butt Lake (Hevonperseenlampi), Pussy Bog (Tussunsuo), Piss Creek (Kusipuro), Dick River (Munajoki) and Fart Hill (Pierumäki), to mention just of few of the most presentable poor names of otherwise quite eligible places. However, our summer trips on land and water take you to the most beautiful sites Kuusamo has to offer - quite often in one of the three unique national parks of Oulanka, Riisitunturi and Hossa. 

ENJOY SUMMER IN THE LAND OF THE NATIONAL PARKS

The area of Ruka-Kuusamo is known as “the land of national parks”, since it is surrounded with three different National Parks: Oulanka, Riisitunturi and Hossa with the addition of Paanajärvi National Park, located just beyond the Russian border. Each of the parks has their own unique nature to explore. Oulanka, Riisitunturi and Hossa are located in easy day-trip distance from Ruka village.
