Inspirock Rating:
4.7/5 based on 190+ reviews on the web
Ruka offers downhill and cross-country skiing, as well as hiking trails through the expansive landscape, depending on the season. The attraction is known for having one of the longest-running ski seasons in Europe--from October to June. Offering both day and night skiing, the site gives you the opportunity to ski 24/7. Over 600 km (373 mi) of snowmobile routes provide another way to conquer the snow. These routes turn into hiking trails and mountain biking paths during warmer months. The site also offers fishing and rafting experiences to give you access to the cool waters that run through the nearby Oulanka National Park. The village at the base of the mountains is a pedestrian-only area with casual and fine-dining restaurants, cafes, and shops with rental equipment and souvenirs. Consider renting a chalet or booking a hotel in the village; visit the attraction's website for discounts on lodging and services. For travelers who use our custom trip planner, Kuusamo holidays become easier to arrange, with trips to the Ruka and other attractions mapped out and timetabled.
