Winter at Ruka and Kuusamo
Winter wonderland for snow lovers
Ruka and Kuusamo offer all the delights of winter. By day you can enjoy cross-country or downhill skiing, or join husky safari and reindeer sled rides. Then spend the evening relaxing in a sauna, enjoying local wild food and sipping a cocktail at a nightclub.
Winter Weekly Program - an easy starting point!
We organize a weekly schedule of activities throughout the winter season. Choose your own combination of things to do: husky safaris, snowmobile tours of the surrounding area, ice fishing, ice karting, floating in the rapids, wild food dinners and much more. Winter programs run from 1 November to 15 April, though the timing of some tours depends on snow cover and ice quality.
Ruka Ski Resort - 200 days of snow!
Ruka has been chosen the Best Ski Resort in Finland for several times and it's very easy to see why: the slopes are well-maintaned, snow secure and versatile. Especially families with children have been taken into account; there are plenty of resting places and fun stuff for kids! Check out Ruka’s ski areas and find your own favourite slope.
Winter programs for families
Take part in our winter programs as a family! The minimum age for a safari tour is 5 years. Younger children can visit a husky or reindeer farm, where they can ride a sleigh. Young children will also be enchanted by a visit to Santa Claus.
Wellbeing from nature
An active day on the slopes or in the trails of the various national parks is fullfilled with an exotic sauna experience, relaxation or yoga.
