Polar nights and blue moments of the midwinter, late winters sun and shining snow, ice and the northern lights; this is the frame where the unforgettable arctic adventure is just one contact away. Journey goes through the snowy forests and icy lakes together with fast snowmobiles, friendly husky dogs or calm reindeer. When it’s time to quiet down, we’ll admire the sceneries and enjoy the quietness at snowshoe- and ice fishing trip.Nightless night and autumn colors Summer light, keennes and colors of spring and autumn reminds of the circulation of life. Diversity of the nature of Kuusamo and rapidly changing seasons leads us into the summer adventures. Blazing white water rafting, mind calming hikings and fishing trips give everybody that something which makes Kuusamo and Ruka Safaris so special.Ruka Safaris have weekly program for Summer and for Winter and we offer programs for groups too. We will take you to unforgettable adventures!

Amazing week in Ruka, Finland but we came away with a sour taste in our mouth after two nightmare bookings with Ruka Safaris. A Northern lights evening sleigh ride where the rickety old Snowmobile pulling the sleigh broke down at around 8pm in the middle of the woods. We were left on our own for 40 minutes in pitch black,... More

We (alltogether 6 people) did take a river rafting tour to the big rapids via Ruka Safaris. Why we did choose them was firstly because of the length of the tour - when others did offer 2-3 hours tour, they had a 6 hours tour ending to the Russian boarder. And that was so nice! Yes, the rapids were done... More

It is a family business and all were extremely helpful, friendly and informative. All cold weather and safety clothing provided with clear instructions on how to use the snow mobile and the track to... More

We had an awesome time on the 20km snowmobile trip. It ended up just being myself and my boyfriend, which was great! The guides were really informative, and the stop at their igloo was really great, and they shared a lot of information about the history of Lapland with us. I booked on line, and received quick confirmation of my... More

Loved the dog safari and so do the dogs the scenery is breathtaking and a wonderful experience. The guy who ran the safai was so nice and friendly. Great day. i thought the people running the Ruka Safaris organisation were good over the email. I would think twice about taking a snowmobile out at night if you haven't done it... More

These guys are great. They really went out of their way to be helpful and are very professional. The snowmobile safari was great. I really enjoyed it even though I was pretty poor at it and found it physically exhausting!

This company was fantastic. Their communication before our visit to Finland was great. Really went out of their way to organise suitable trips for our family. Our first trip was Snowmobiling. We were fortunate enough to be the only family on the tour so got the full attention of the guide, a real personal service. The children went in a... More
