Great ski resort for beginners! Wide, non-"threatening" slopes, easy and pain-free ski rental and ski school procedures, great nature

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.

From start to end this holiday was perfect , the representative's were at hand 24 hours a day to sort anything out for you. We didn't have to think about a thing, all excursions started on time and we were given everything we needed to keep us warm. The skiing and snowboarding was immense , no queues, and a first... More

I almost want to keep this resort the little secret it seems to be! We are a family of 3 holidaying with friends who were looking to combine a lapland trip with skiing. Every year for the last 5 years we have skied in the alps and while this doesn't compare size wise it makes up for it with what... More

Hard to imagine a better place to ski with young children. Empty slopes, lovely routes through the forest and the Rosa and Rudolf run with little huts to ski through and real reindeers! Of course this is not the Alps but it doesn't pretend to be. For children and beginners, Ruka wins easily over bigger resorts. We were happy to... More

I made a visit to Ruka in the last week of August 2013 and it was beautiful. There was no snow, so it was a strange feeling to see all the Ruka ski equipment without snow. Most of the restaurants ar still open at August meanwhile most of the tourists were gone, so I got plenty of space to walk... More
