The town of Ruka, situated near the Russian border, is fast gaining popularity with tourists who love skiing. Ruka boasts of a magnificent mountain and twenty-eight ski slopes. The ski slopes here are floodlit due to the absence of adequate natural light. The unmarred nature and the chilly winds make Ruka perfect for winter activities. Every year Ruka provides the enthusiasts with 240 days of skiing. Moreover, Ruka is situated very close to Santa’s home and is hence bustling with festivities during the Christmas season. The blanket of deep white snow, the welcoming hospitality of the place and the fun and frolic of Christmas are bound to make the holiday a memorable one.

Christmas A thirty minutes journey from Ruka brings one to Vuotunki where the visitors can engage in tobogganing. They can also enjoy the grilling of sausages by the side of a lovely fire. Here, Santa might meet all the visitors in his age-old cabin and the children can make Christmas decorations, bake buns and cookies or perform other Christmas fun chores. Last Christmas, when guests went to meet Santa Claus, refreshments like tea, coffee, wine, and berry juice were served.
