A White Christmas

Enjoy a White Christmas in Ruka, with the option to Ski everyday (lessons and equipment rental can be arranged), and a self-contained apartment with its own sauna for 4 nights over the Christmas Period. 

Enjoy a low key Christmas on the slopes or indulge in the Christmas Spirit as the local Finns enjoy traditional Christmas food such as fish and ham, and soak up the Christmas spirit! 

Children in Finland get a visit from Santa Claus on the 24th, before he heads off around the world to deliver gifts, so if you have kids with you, there is a chance to meet Santa at one of the local hotels or restaurants in walking distance.

Included in the program:

*4 nights accommodation in Apartment with own sauna

*3 days ski passes

*Snowmobiling to the Reindeer farm and a Husky Sledding Excursion

*Return transfers from Kuusamo airport or Ruka bus station (depending on mode of transport)

Typical layout of the apartment:

Arriving to RUKA from Helsinki is not a long journey by flight, and Finnair flys there daily.  Alternatively flying to OULU airport is normally a very cost effective option, from where it is  a 3 hour bus ride or transfer to RUKA village.

We start the program at RUKA Village.
