For travellers and visitors, Ruka-Kuusamo offers a plethora of activities, both in winter and in summer. Many activities available take you from the legendary nature sights to authentic saunas, from a reindeer farm to a table filled with local delicacies.
The area has very good accommodation possibilities in chalets and private lodges. There are a few hotels, but the majority of the accommodation is offered in smaller units, suitable well for families and small groups. As there are chalet resorts with large capacity as well as hotels with world-class meeting and conference facilities, larger events can also be organised in Ruka-Kuusamo.
