Visited on one silent tuesday, Ruka has quite lot of activities to offer in the summer despite it is highly winter activity place. Quad safaris, hiking, berry collection etc.

I'd contact the tourist information in Ruka. They are very helpful and speak excellent English. They organised us a taxi with a local company when we went to the husky farm.
