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.
