Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

    Thank you to our guide Harri, we really enjoyed our two snowmobile safaris.
    Both of which we would recommend!!
    I was initially very nervous and slow at driving the snowmobile however Harri reassured me and I was soon whizzing along.
    Loved going over the frozen lakes.
    Our younger children loved being towed in the sled.

    Awesome place! It was an amazing experience watching the starry sky at bedtime! I slept very well in a very comfortable and spacious bed. It was an experience to walk in a dark but white snow covered forest. A place called Lammintupa offered wonderful experiences on Hysky and Reindeer safaris. In addition, ice karting was a great experience.
    When you want to enjoy nature and experiences. Not a party place.

    This was fun also for adukta. You can go single or with double sled and control the speed.

    Highly recommend to buy the 5x ticket as first time you probably take it easy and once you get excited, want to try it again. 😊

    We had an AWESOME vacation. Excellent place to stay and experience the real Finnish culture. We did river floating, ice fishing, snowshoe walking, reindeer feeding and ofcourse the most fun activity of all: snowmobiling (introduction and trip to the Russian border). The trip to the Russian border really is a must do! You drive through the most beautiful winter landscape you've ever seen with very high trees completely covered in snow which become spectacular sculptures. The speed is also quite a bit higher (if you want) and when crossing the lakes they allow you to go full throttle (101 kmh measured on GPS :-). All guides are very kind and have lots of knowledge. I can also recommend the breakfast. Totally awesome holiday and a well earned 5 star review for Ruka Safaris!

    What an incredible experience! For us adults this was the highlight of our trip, the team were so friendly and welcoming from the moment we arrived.

    When we arrived we were given a briefing on how to drive the sleigh before heading over to the kennels where the Huskies were. There was lots of noise and you could tell all the Huskies were hoping it was their turn to get out for a run! You could also tell how happy they all were and it was clear that animal welfare was top of Era-Susi's priorities, they are also green activities certified.

    We went for the kennel visit and 5km tour which worked out at €263 since my youngest daughter was under 4 and therefore free. Once we got on the sleigh and all the dogs were excited to get going, jumping around and barking away. When we pulled away it was amazing driving the sleigh with the family sitting in front through the Finnish forest, the scenery is picturesque and the excitement of driving the sleigh is amazing.

    We went in convoy and waited for one another at various stops with opportunities to take pictures, the route took about 20-30 minutes in total. When we got back to the kennels we had the opportunity to stroke and play with the dogs who were all so friendly and gentle, some were real characters and very playful.

    Following this we were taken into a hut for a hot drink and a donut, before getting the opportunity to meet the 5 week old husky puppies. After this we had the opportunity to buy some gifts in the gift shop, so we loaded up on things to take back to the family at home - great cuddly Huskies for the Nieces and Nephews.

    I can't recommend this experience highly enough to anyone who is fortunate to get the opportunity to do it. The only thing I would say would be that I went for the 5km ride as I was worried the kids would get bored/cold, it was definitely too short and I would recommend getting the longest ride possible - it's definitely a once in a lifetime experience.

    We rented snowmobiles and had lunch after that. Great service and very good new equipment. Lunch was really tasty with local specialities and something for everyone on the menu. Can recommend!

    Very nice experience, fly like superman!
    You first need to buy tickets for the skilift to Ruka Peak, and than you buy tickets for the Zipline, and afterwards you need a ticket for the gondola lift to go down to valley or village.
    So €12,50 extra for return tickets for the skilift + gondola
