Children’s very own
Ruka Nordic!

Children’s Nordic offers many activities for the smaller ones in the family as Santa Claus, Mrs. Claus, reindeer and Santa’s elves are there to enjoy the World Cup atmosphere as well! You also get to try out different winter sports and have fun at Kidz Snowfun Tour!

At Santa’s hut we keep busy with lots of enjoyable activities and we get to know Santa Claus, Mrs. Claus, reindeer and Santa’s elves – on every day of the event!

Kidz Snowfun Tour offers a variety of inspiring snow sport activities, such as ski jumping, skiing, biathlon and cross-country cross. And of course Tuisku (“Flurry”) is there too to inspire children and whole families to enjoy the snow.

The Kidz Snowfun Tour area is naturally free of charge. Opening hours are on Saturday the 26th of November from 10 am to 5 pm, and on Sunday the 27th from 10 am to 2 pm. On Saturday from noon to 3 pm the first and second graders of Ruka elementary school (together around 100 pupils) are on a field trip in the FIS Snow Kidz area, so bare that in mind as you plan your visit. We recommend that you bring your own skis with you so that you get the best out of all snow sport activities! Warm juice and little snacks are served for those visiting the Kidz Snowfun Tour!

Come and meet Santa Claus and his friends, and get excited about snow sports at Kidz Snowfun Tour!

  • The best memories are made on snow

    We keep busy at Santa’s hut! Next to the spectator restaurant is Santa’s hut, built in the style of a traditional Sami dwelling. Inside the hut, we read fairytales and other exciting activities for kids from one to ninety-two take place. Santa’s elves, too, have arrived there with Santa, and are eagerly waiting at the hut to play with you. You may meet Santa and his wife – as well as their reindeer – also in other parts of the area, as they circle the stadium during the event.

    Don’t be afraid to go and pull Santa’s sleeve if you see him, he is looking forward to know what you wish for this Christmas!
