Fatbiket Kuusamon Tropiikin reiteillä, Ruka-Kuusamo

Kuusamo centre

A town centre with spectacular lakeside scenery and diverse services

You might drive past Kuusamo centre, enclosed by Oulangantaipale and Kitkantie, when heading to Ruka, but we absolutely recommend getting to know what it has to offer.

Kuusamo is a beautiful nature town

Kuusamo centre is surrounded by bodies of water, and many of the area’s hiking, cycling and skiing trails and paths run along lakes or rivers. Compared to Ruka, the terrain is fairly even, so if you love cross country skiing, make sure you also try out the ski trail network in Kuusamo centre!

Local culture in many forms

The heart of Kuusamo’s cultural offering is definitely Kuusamotalo, which also houses Kuusamo’s cinema with a whopping 520 seats. In the summer, popular tourist attractions include Kuusamo Outdoor Museum, the summer theatre and the history trail around the shores of Lake Kuusamojärvi.

Tourist Centre Karhuntassu – the source of all information

Immediately when you arrive in Kuusamo centre, you will come face to face with Tourist Centre Karhuntassu. There you will find Kuusamo’s tourist information, a Metsähallitus service point and Hannu Hautala Nature Photography Centre, as well as a café, shop and free WiFi.

A new cultural centre is under construction in the premises of Karhuntassu and, as a result of that, tourism information can be found in temporary facilities in Kuusamo hall in 2022.
