New Business and Operations in 2021

Ratia Forest Service will shift into new mode as Ruka has got a new premium service Safari and Excurions' House - Ruka Trek Team Oy! I will continue as the Managing Director and Partner of the new business. 

We will start our operations in June this summer with river rafting in the beautiful sceneries of river Kitka. The building project of our new facilities will begin during spring and we should be able to move in sometime during November-December time. We will begin our communications with the new business as soon as we get the starting up formalities done and channels opened.

Let's be in touch! -Antti

Wilderness guide & chef de forest

You’d like to get away from it all but you don't have a guide? Look no further. Snowmobile safaries, sleigh rides, ice fishing trips, snowshoe hiking in the Ruka-Kuusamo area. 

Rafting guide

The spectacular rapids of Kitka river are in a league all their own. An experience that everyone should have. Your skipper is waiting for you!

Nature photographer's guide

Kuusamo region is a photographer's paradise. Forest sceneries, bears, birds and northern lights. I'll take you to the locations and guide you on how to take the pictures that take your breath away.

Experience the amazing 
northern forests and treks!

The Kuusamo region is surrounded by Oulanka, Hossa and Riisitunturi national parks. Together these areas create a unique environment which is truly worth visiting. That is why this part of Finland is called "The land of national parks".
