The festival site, Rukatunturi, is a fell located in northern Finland. The event takes place between the 18th and 20th of June, during the time of summer solstice in Finland. Combined with the northern location this means the sun doesn’t set at all during that time, creating a unique atmosphere, a celebration of light and life.
Picturesque views spread as far as the eyes can see, overlooking the beautiful nature of northern Finland with its endless sea of spruce trees, pine trees and lakes.
Ruka is a superb place for different kinds of outdoor activities like hiking, rafting and bear watching, which is why we encourage you to come a couple of days before the festival, stay a couple of days extra or do both.
