11 July. Rukka resort

This time the object of our attention is a Finnish mountain-skiing resort of Rukka. Finland as a Greece got everything – forest, lakes, mountains, a lot of snow at winter, perfect roads and good service. We have find the corner to Rukka on the informational stand near the route. This is a European (and Scandinavia) practice – start the meetings for auto-tourists with the information about local attractions and fresh detailed maps. It is very helpful.

Ski Resort Rukka

From the top of the mountain, where the main lifter is standing, you can see a large mallow. It is covered with forest and mirror-like lakes. Groups of the walkers with skis equipment are passing us near the road. There is an iron gutter down the peak, through which you can slip down on the wagon with a hand brakes. Fillings are indescribable – this is a flight between clouds and greens.


Near the downside of entrance of the lifter is the lake. Maybe it is artificial – it has a gravel coasts. Several Finnish families were fishing there.

Beautiful pond and young fisherman

Comparing Rukka resort and Shamoni, France.
Yes, Montblanc is higher, but local prices are lower than French. Also, service is looking more friendly.
