We had a great time at the husky sledge ride! The staff were experienced and nice, dogs were friendly and we had a traditional sausage and coffee afterwards. We even saw Santa as it was a Christmas day! The staff made your visit feel safe with necessary covid restrictions and rhey look after the dogs. We saw some reindeers too, the safari was the highlight of our trip to Ruka.

An amazing day of white water rafting (and floating) on Kitkajoki in Oulanka national park. We opted for the full day tour: 7 hours and 32 km of rafting. It was amazing! Wonderful scenery, great guide and so much rapid excitement. I warmly recommend this to all adults.

We booked directly and everything was perfect! clear communication and reminder and clear pick up info The driver was on time and super friendly - we thought we would have to make our own way back to the Tropiikkii where we were staying but he brought us back too They have a lovely modern centre just south of Ruka in the middle of the forest - All the equipment is like new Our guide was just right - friendly, clear and clearly very very knowledgeable! We were lucky there were only 4 snowmobiles but a couple of days earlier there were 20! We loved the trip and it was well worth the money. If we were to do it again I would email them for a private tour with the same guide as he was so nice and friendly with our 11 year old daughter who rode with him (our choice!) Thank you again for such a well managed and exhilarating experience that we will not for forget!

I used Ruka Safaris for a day trip to Oulanka national park and it was a wonderful outing! It was my first experience with snowshoes and the guide was very helpful indeed, sadly I'm terrible with names but she had pinkish hair and an easy smile. The trip out was incredible and the guide was very knowledgeable of the area, pointing out several things including the different reindeer moss and ended with a hot drink at the old mill. I really enjoyed this trip and recommend the service to anyone travelling in the area!

The sleigh is pulled by a snow mobile and set off at 8pm. Takes you deep in to the forest and stops half way through. You have a hot drink while soaking up the atmosphere and your guide telling you about the northern lights and the stars and explaining about the wildlife . Unfortunately it was a bit cloudy to see the northern lights but well worth going on this
