We have had a very good experience with Ruka Safaris. We did a snow shoe tour with Carry and she told us a lot about the forest, nature and Finland. She is a very good guide. We also did a snowmobile tour which was very cool and they also arranged a husky tour for us which was amazing. During the husky tour we could drive with the dogs ourselves. The reindeer activity was also nice but was a bit touristy. The drive with the reindeer sledge was very very short like 1 round on their farm so that was a bit disappointed but we liked to see the reindeer and to learn more about them! Ruka safaris is a great organization to discover Finland with. They are all so friendly and kind. They made our experience especial! I would 100% recommend them. Also the clothes that we got were very good quality!!

Our group of 10 participated in different activities with this organisation: snowmobile tour, ice fishing, 28 km husky tour, river floating (truly unique), snowshoe hiking, ice karting, fat biking and a visit to a reindeer farm. All these activities were perfectly organised and taxis and transfers were always punctual. Tourists are treated like guests. Special thanks to our patient and friendly guides Jari, Heidi, Tiia, Anton, Lumi and Topi. We also appreciated the warm welcome we got from Mika at his family’s reindeer farm.

We are a family of four (two adults and two girls aged 9 & 10) and we did an evening sleigh ride pulled by a snowmobile. We were well looked after by our guide (Larry - hope the spelling is right), who was very knowledgeable. We were picked up from Kussamo by Angela who was very friendly. These two were among the friendliest people I have met on my travels. The tour was on a cloudy night so there was no chance of seeing the northern lights. However, Larry explained lots about how they occur and where is best to see them and what conditions. He took us into the middle of a frozen lake and stopped where we had hot drinks. The only improvement we could have had is a starry night but you cannot do much about weather although the light snowfall was nice in a different way. This is a tour that people with children can do or romantic couples. Make sure you are ready for cold although the venue has plentiful supply of gear to make sure you are OK. I fully recommend this trip.

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.
