The center of snow sports Ruka-Kuusamo
Ruka-Kuusamo is an outdoor destination in northern Finland, beloved by both domestic and international holiday makers alike.
The area’s strongest feature is its nature, the landscape that is decorated by gorges and fells, wild rivers and vast lakes, where the ever changing seasons paint the scenery in white, green or gold. An equally strong feature is the local culture with focus on wellbeing and wild food, countryside traditions and traditional livelihoods.
Plethora of memorable activities
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.
