Christmas adventure in Ruska Laukka in Ruka-Kuusamo

Atmospheric horse farm visit

The highlight of the holiday for the youngest members of the family is a Christmas visit to a horse farm in Kuusamo. The private program is guided by an atmospheric story.

The children’s program begins with a tour of the horse farm. We get to know and feed the farm’s horses, sheep and chickens together. The farm’s elves guide the children on an excursion to the horse farm. During the trip you can see a glimpse of Ronivaara's old Roni elf. On the way in the yard you will receive nice messages and surprises. During the trip you will enjoy togetherness and peace in the idyllic northern nature.

Relaxing being with ponies and horses and a riding experiment in stunning scenery is the highlight of a holiday for many small travelers. You will get a unique memory from the trip with you. Parents can be with the children during the program. We enjoy gingerbreads and hot drinks at the end of the trip.
