Children’s very own
Ruka Nordic!

This year Children’s Nordic offers many activities for the everyone in the family!

Ruka Nordic has lots of activities and happenings to offer for everyone, especially for the little ones of the family. We are joined by a very special visitor straight from the famous Korvatunturi – Mr. Santa Claus himself! Santa will also bring his lovely Mrs. Santa to meet the kids, and Santa’s elves will organize fun activities for children. 

In the stadium area, you can also meet our marvelous mascots and slide downhill on a glider nearby the family restaurant Poronsarvi. 

As a new event in this year’s Ruka Nordic is the Coop Mini World Cup, where kids can have once-in-a-lifetime kind of experience by participating to a skiing competition right in the middle of the stadium area!  Coop Mini World Cup is for kids between ages 7-12, and its main goal to encourage & inspire kids to be active in their daily lives.  

Coop Mini World Cup will be held on Friday at 17.00 and Saturday at 16.00. The advance registration for the race ends 24.11.2019 but if there’s open places left, it will be possible to sign up also at the info booth nearby main gates when arriving to the area. There is no participation fee, but you will need your own equipment. Also, everyone will get a small award! Isn’t that amazing?
