· idyllic woodland location in West Ruka · 5 minutes' walk to the ski bus stop · 12 minutes' walk to Ruka Valley if you are based in East Ruka or 30 minutes' walk to Ruka Village if you are based in West Ruka · 15 minutes' bus ride to the Vuosseli slopes in East Ruka, ski school area and Rosa and Rudolph Snow Park
The Ruka Log Cabins are the accommodation of choice for anyone looking for the ultimate Finnish experience. Traditionally built and furnished, the cabins are nestled in an idyllic woodland setting – ideal for those who like peace and privacy but don’t want to be too far from the centre.
It’s a 5-minute walk to the ski bus stop and a 12-minute walk to Ruka Valley if you are based in East Ruka, or a 30 minute walk to Ruka Village if you are based in West Ruka – good for warming up in the morning but it might be a challenge if you’re travelling with small children. On the other hand, you can take advantage of the hill and sledge back down to your cabin at the end of the day.
The open log fire and drying cabinet means that both you and your clothes will always be warm and cosy, even in the freezing temperatures that Finland is famous for. And you can always visit the private sauna for an extra burst of heat.
Spacious living areas and full kitchens mean these cabins are good for families and groups of friends. The supermarket is at least a 25-minutes walk (or short bus ride) away and it's reasonably priced, so you can avoid the high restaurant prices in Ruka by cooking at home. Evenings can be spent relaxing in front of the fire, or maybe trying to spy the Northern Lights out of the window – but you can still head into town if you fancy a night out.
