Took a bus from Oulu to Kuusamo. Luckily had time to buy a bit of snacks from R kiosk next to the bus station.
Grey in daytime but darkness was beutiful. And in Sprint, there should be a lot of sun shine.

If skiing woth kids, check out the reindeers and huskies.
23/35 slopes were open in the beginning of December. In good condition.
Walked to see (in torch light) and hear the waterfall in dark.
National park with many different trails options. Most famous one Karhunkierros "Bear circle"). Close to Russian border.
Ruka cross country trails
When we visited Ruka, only part of the skiing trails were ready. But the ready ones were in really good condition.
Rented skis etc from here. A bit cheaper than in the neighbouring rental shop.
Lovely view next to our hotel! The photo not capturing it.
Open 24/7 till end of March. Has even a small ice chapel: coolest wedding place of the year?
