Things to do in Kuusamo

The main activities in Ruka and Kuusamo are downhill skiing, cross-country skiing and snowmobiling. But there is a lot more here too!

Kuusamo is first and foremost a family resort and there are many things to do in Lapland. We will make sure the kids have fun, making sure the whole family enjoy their snow vacation!

Sunny skies and wintry trails
Many of our guests are amazed by the amount of snow and impressive silence. Snowshoes or cross-country skis are a great way of making your own path across the snowy expanses to admire the whiteness of winter in Kuusamo. Ice-fishing is another way of truly discovering the essence of silence.

Powered speed
Downhill skiing is by far the most popular winter activity at Ruka. If you feel shaky on slippery surfaces, we recommend you take a lesson. The advice of our professional ski instructors will get you gliding with style in no time! Besides ski lifts, you can utilize the power of motors in many other ways: snowmobiling and winter karting are good fun for speed lovers. And you can even combine speed and silence on reindeer and husky safaris!

On your own or in a group - the choice is yours!

You can hire equipment for many sports and make your own trip in the surroundings. If you decide to join a group, our professional safari organizers will take good care of you on tailored safaris. Many have their own non-stop weekly programs; starting times are always the same, and you can book your activity as late as on the day before.
