The Ruka pedestrian village also provides services and experiences along slopes and routes, the village centre is car-free, and parking is available in the underground Ruka Parking Hall.

Day 1. It's time to go to Lapland!
Sit back, relax, and enjoy the flight to Lapland.
On the journey from Kuusamo Airport to Ruka Valley, the children will learn about how to become an Elf, and the important tasks they will need to complete in order to graduate from Elf School and help Sparkle become an amazing Special Elf.
In Ruka this evening, you’ll receive your snow suits and boots, and you can enjoy dinner and check into your accommodation.
After dinner, meet some of the traditional Elves and Sparkle who has been waiting patiently for you.
Have you chosen your Elf name yet?
Day 2. Let the fun begin, it's time for Elf School!
Over the course of the next couple of days, you’ll be asked to complete a set of Elf tasks to help Sparkle on the path to becoming a Special Elf.
Today you’ll come together with the Special Elves to learn to develop your own Elf skills, by experiencing some of the best Arctic activities such as snowmobiles, huskies, reindeers, snowshoe hikes and everyone’s favourite, making snow angels! There may even be time for some Elf School Games, and yes, the grown-ups can join in too. As you enjoy these activities, you must collect all the stamps required to complete your Elf passport. Santa’s trusty friends the huskies and reindeer will go out of their way to help you to achieve this, because they know exactly how important your mission is.
Will you meet Santa today? If you do, then he's sure to reward every trainee Elf with a gift.
This evening enjoy dinner in resort.
Day 3. Will you graduate Elf School?
Today, we'll resume our Elf duties, aided by Santa's furry friends.
Will you learn to play tricks just like the joker wild ‘Tricky Dicky’? Will Speedy Sam show you how he races through sorting the mail at the Post Office? And what will Sparkle’s unique skill be if we help her to become Santa’s next Special Elf?
If you didn't see Santa himself yesterday, he’s sure to have some words of encouragement to help you in your quest to become a real-life Elf today. And, don't forget he also has a gift for you.
This sparkling break allows you to relax and enjoy more family time in the magical world of Lapland – you can have fun building a snowman, or perhaps enjoy a family race on the tobogganing slope.
When we return to resort, enjoy a celebration dinner this evening; followed by the Graduation Party to commemorate your fantastic achievement of becoming one of Santa’s Elves.
Will Sparkle be joining you? That really depends on you!
Day 4. Say a fond farewell to Lapland
It is time to day goodbye to some of our new Elf friends.
Enjoy a relaxed breakfast this morning, then join your chums outside for some final snow games before it’s time to leave.
After lunch, we’ll say a final farewell to the magical world of Lapland before returning to the airport.
