Ruka for children

Ruka for children


All kids love amusement parks, from which you do not want to go home. Ruka-Kuusamo region - is a real natural park, open daily, 365 days a year.

The facilities of Ruka cover the needs of people of all ages. Happy Family kindergarten at Kumpare takes good care of the young ones, while the rest of the family can enjoy the pleasures of the ski resort. There are children's areas in almost all Ruka restaurants.

There are four kids-only lifts in Ruka free of charge. Sleighs and slides are permitted in several locations in Ruka (not on ski runs). 
Getting started is easy in hire shops: suitable equipment is chosen by our professional and friendly staff. And the Ski School makes the start of a new hobby safe and enjoyable. 

Using the "big" lifts is made easy, too: the Key Card allows kids to walk through the gate without having to reach up to get the ski pass accepted. It's the small things that make a successful skiing day!

Ruka Children's areas are for those who are big enough to try skiing and sleigh rides: Vuosseli Kids is located by the Vuosseli Slopes and Frontside Slopes right next to the main chair lift in Western Ruka. Parents are advised to accompany their children since there is no day-care staff in the area. Rosa & Rudolf adventure route for kid´s is located by the Ahonlaita, near Vuosseli slopes. There you can see real reindeers! Please bear in mind that kids under 7 years use all lifts free of charge only if wearing a helmet, and 6-11 year olds get a fair discount off ski passes!
