History of tourism in Kuusamo

A group of Pellisti, who in the 1950s went camping in Oulanka in the summer, went downhill skiing in Ruka in the winter, but who were the Pellisti, and what about Ruka’s red devils? Through what phases did Ruka grow to its current dimensions and how was Karhunkierros born?

The history of Kuusamo’s tourism is widely displayed in the tourism and culture centre Karhuntassu.
