Superb place for an active holiday

The skiing season in Ruka usually begins as soon as October and lasts well into May. The area has 29 slopes and 400 km of cross-country skiing trails. The program services enterprises in the area will take you on snowmobile safaris, for example; there are over 500 km of trails to discover. Why not try a husky safari, snow-shoeing or a trip to a reindeer farm? They are well worth a visit! 

There is spectacular hiking terrain in Kuusamo and Finland’s most popular place for outdoor excursions and trekking, Karhunkierros (’bear run’), as well as Finland’s longest summer sledding track.
