Our Christmas is never full without going to Ruka. We've been here for 4 times already and are going to come back this season. Apart from a ski resort which will be great for kids and beginners, the atmosphere is so calm and relaxing here! That's exactly what everyone needs after a hard year's work:) Skidoos, huskies, reindeer are always... More

Loved Ruka to bits, it really is a fairy tale, so picturesque and breathtaking with everything you need in one place ... except a supermarket big enough. You can take a trip out of the complex itself but you would need a car and I wasn't confident enough to drive on ice on the opposite side of the road. Other... More

Some shops and restaurants closed in July but still many activities for outdoors and hiking in summertime. Very nice lift to the summit for taking photos. A great outdoor resort!

Lovely quiet resort with great snow and well looked after pistes. Nice relaxed atmospheres and good long days. No queues for the lifts during the week but very busy at the weekend with locals which the resort wasnt quite big enough for. All of the hotels in Ruka village are right on the slopes but there buses that go from... More

A magical fairyland place with amazing trips. Snowmobile with Mike from the near the petrol station was a scream and the husky ride amazing end to our week. Ruka has shops, bars and ski hire all you need.
