We had booked the sled ride 10Km. We were received very friendly, we were given warm clothes and were taken to the farm by bus. Once there, there was a briefing, a wonderful ride through the forest and later a snack. The process was well organised and the experience was great.

Ice carting race is great fun when it is done properly. This time it seemed that staff was ”just there”. Practice and then time-out. We were never results of time-out. Cars were put in starting grid in arriving order, not how you drove. Then in race and time-out if you spun staff was very slow helping. I even had to wake them up that someone is stuck, they were too busy watching theit phones…

Cars are also getting old and need updating soon.

This time not worth the money. If done properly as promised it is.

We did the starlight snowmobile as a family. The kids went in a sleigh behind the guide and my husband and I or a snowmobile. Amazing night out despite the freezing temperatures and the warming drink was very welcome.
We had a wonderful time and would recommend it to others

- [ ] Our trip to Oulanka Nationalpark has been absolutely amazing. We were picked up from a hotel in Ruka by our guide Silja for this tour. We arrived at the park after approximately 30 minutes. Silja gave us an instruction how to put on the snowshoes and helped us to do so. And after a short introduction about our location, the park itself and our route for the day we started our walk through an absolutely amazing landscape. It wasn’t difficult walking in the shoes and the speed was adapted to the participants of the group. Silja always waited when someone was behind and at the same time she gave us a moment to take in the panorama and to take some pictures. We walked to an old mill next to a half frozen river where you can spot the white throated dipper -a bird who is famous for diving into the icy water for food. Then we walked alongside the river and crossed it on a rope bridge twice. Our guide Silja who was accompanied by one of her dogs gave us lots of information about the landscape, the flora and the fauna. She explained the various footprints of animals in the snow, how animals survive the cold and snowy winter, the birds around us and the lichen hanging off the trees. And she didn’t get tired answering our millions of questions to the park and its animals. The tour ended with a cup of hot chocolate and some cinnamon rolls that Silja has carried around with her. So all in all it was a very lovely and relaxing experience with our guide Silja through a calming landscape that we can only recommend.

We used Ruka Adventures last week and booked at very short notice ice karting, the team there were fantastic, informative, friendly and re-assuring. They also entertained my 8 year old who was gutted as he wasn’t tall enough to take part in the ice karting so they offered him the use of a snow mobile whilst we were karting and he ended up having an absolute blast! Thank you to the team and the amazing memories :) we have booked to return to Ruka next year and will be booking up some activities with you next Jan 2025.

Booked the snowmobile scenic tour, pick up included. Pick up was punctual and straight into kitting out. All the overalls, boots, gloves, balaclava and helmet was provided and all in good clean condition. Brief was of good quality and off we went. Had a great ride out, the tour guide was brilliant, ensuring we were all safe and had no issues regularly. Nice ride out across mostly flattish tracks and a stop for some hot drinks. Really nice trip out showing how beautiful the country is away from the tourist traps. Highly recommended.
