Activities in Winter
Ruka is a paradise for the snow enthusiast. There are dozens of different slalom slopes, suitable for the beginner as well as for the expert skier. There are 35 slopes and 20 lifts altogether.
There are also hundreds of kilometres of extremely well groomed cross-country ski tracks at your disposal, ranging from easy scenic routes to more challenging tracks which take you over the felltops.
You can snowmobile independently on the Ruka area routes.
Ice-fishing waters are within an easy reach from Rukajärven Lomamajat and Villa Saaruanniemi. Lakes Rukajärvi and Vuosseli or other nearby ponds have clear water and their fish are really tasty. It is also possible to accompany the host to a fishing trip and see how net fishing is done in winter.
Our snow-covered wilderness is here waiting for you!
