A small Karhunkierros Bear's Ring, was a nice experience in sunny whether. I saw also the Siilastupa, which was in a very nice place by Kitkariwer.Also of note is the Pieni Karhunkierros, or Little Bear's Ring, a circular day trip trail of 12 km (7.5 mi) that partly shares the route of Karhunkierros proper.

Our family stayed three nights in Aurinkorinne apartment during the freestyle competitions in Ruka ski resort. Our apartment was just beside the slope so it was really easy to come and go to downhill ski. Everything was just nice in apartment. It was really cleen and almost spotless!
Good sauna was nice too. The apartment was easy to find and with the code I got before we game to Ruka we went to apartment when it was suitable for us!

Room Tip: Apartment A, B, C or D is just beside the slope.

Just perfect. Cross-country skiing tracks under your window and ski-lifts only 100 metres away.
Well equipped apartment. Shops, restaurants and fitness center nearby. Very peaceful. We will book them again. Stayed there 5 nights in March for skiing holidays.

We booked these independently and found them ideal for a family of four. Very well equipped, including sauna, log fire and drying cupboard. Little touches such as all cleaning supplies are included as well hand soap, loo rolls and kitchen roll. Lovely quiet location with fantastic views across the lake. The drag lift next to the apartments makes it an easy ski in/out, but it is also only a short walk to the town centre. We were able to get a strong wifi signal. The hotel were very helpful and allowed us to stay on later on our check out day. Would highly recommend, and loved Ruka itself.

Room Tip: Apartment 49's ideal for four people, would be a bit of a squeeze for six.

We booked these apartments through Thomson/crystal ski and while I agreed with previous reviews regarding the standard of the apartments I think a number of things should be taken into consideration if booking with children. The walk to Ruka while not far is up and extremely steep hill which my 4 year old and 6 year old struggled with. This became a real bone of contention every morning morning and evening when walking to the village with two children who struggled and moaned the whole way.
Also on arrival to the apartments the bus could only park at the top of the hill. This meant that we were left to carry 4 suitcases, 2 pieces of hand luggage and 2 boot bags as well as 2 tired children down the hill to our apartments with little or no help except directions from the rep....not ideal!!!! This was the same on the way home except we had to wait at the top of the hill, outside in the cold until the bus arrived.
Having said all the that don't be put off. These apartments are of a high standard but you should really consider if you would be better located in ruka village.

I booked through crystal and could not have asked for better. The apartments are of a good standard and contain everything and more that you would need for the perfect holiday. The sauna, dishwasher and washing machine were those extra touches that make the apartments such a high standard. I enjoyed the walk to Ruka centre every day through the beautiful snowy landscape. Loved the whole holiday and could not thank the crystal team more for making the holiday unforgettable.

We booked our accommodation through Thomson/Crystal Ski and couldn't have been more pleased. We are a family of four and opted for the six person apartment which comprised of two bedrooms, one with two single beds and the other with a bunk bed (bottom bunk being one and a half times the size of a single) and a double good quality sofa bed. All the beds are unmade when you arrive, but there are mattress toppers and crisp clean linen. There is a fully equipped kitchen, along with a coffee filter machine (no toaster but you can use the grill in the oven), fridge freezer and a dishwasher. In the bathroom there is a sauna, two showers, washing machine and toilet (there is another separate toilet next to the bathroom). If you're skiing you will find the drying cabinet a huge bonus. We were situated in apartment H2 which looked out over the bottom of the ski slope (blue run) that takes you up to Ruka village and the connecting chair lift onto the rest of the slopes. The walk from the apartment into Ruka village is not a long one, but it is fairly steep - especially if you're carrying ski gear or you've got little ones. We opted for self catering which was ideal especially when you've got to be at ski school for 10am. We loved it, and plan to return next year - can't wait.

Stayed: December 2012, traveled with family
