RUKA

The Ruka area, an idyllic landscape of frozen lakes, pristine forests and picturesque fells, is one of the biggest attractions in Kuusamo. The popular Ruka ski resort is excellent for family skiing holidays, with wide, well-groomed slopes. There is 500km of cross country tracks in Kuusamo, of which 40km is illuminated. Snowmobiling is a fun and very popular Lapland activity, and the unspoilt wilderness of Kuusamo is a fantastic place for this thrilling pursuit.

There are plenty of Arctic activities to participate in, with all manner of safaris to try: superb snowmobile adventures, husky sled rides and reindeer sleigh ride excursions, all against a backdrop of outstanding natural scenery.

Ruka is a winter delight and an ideal destination for families looking for a uniquely magical Lapland holiday experience.

Kuusamo is truly a winter paradise located in the north-east of Finland, and acts as a gateway to Lapland. The area was originally home to thousands of Lappish people, with their own history, language, culture and way of life that is still in evidence today.
