Welcome to Kuusamo
Kuusamo is a remote frontier town 200km northeast of Oulu and close to the Russian border, while Ruka is its buzzy ski resort 30km north. Both make great activity bases: wonderful canoeing, hiking and wildlife-watching is available in the surrounding area. In winter it's packed; in summer it makes a useful base for hiking the Karhunkierros
