I would definitely recommend staying here to families with small children over the Ruka log cabins, which are nice to stay in but are quite far out, it’s a long walk or bus ride to get to the skiing whereas these apartments are really close to the slopes.

Location - where is Ruka Suites

In addition to the amenities within the building, there’s a laundrette, off licence and café next door. Half board meals are taken at the Colorado and Villisika restaurants, only a 2 minute walk away. The Colorado is also the closest, and one of the best, places to grab a drink and shoot some pool.


Overview - apartment description - Ruka Suites description

Situated in the centre of the village, just steps to the lifts and a short bus journey to the ski school meeting place, the Ruka Suites are a great choice for both families and groups.

The suites themselves are modern, clean and cosy. Most of them also have fantastic views of the village, slopes or snowy woodland. Key code entry means you don’t have to worry about losing or sharing physical keys. Plus, all the rooms come with private saunas for après relaxation and drying cabinets to warm your gear ready for the next day’s skiing.

The kitchenettes are handy for home cooking - especially if you go for a larger G2 apartment which comes with an oven. If you do fancy eating out one evening, there’s plenty of restaurants within a few minutes' walk.

You don’t even have to leave the building for many amenities - simply nip downstairs for the supermarket, kindergarten and sandwich place. You’ll also find free ski lockers, a bowling alley and an adventure play area on-site - what more could you ask for?

This package holiday to Ruka Suites in Ruka, Finland / Lapland departs Sunday 13th January 2019, for a 7 night stay on a "self catering" board basis. A local tourist tax (Taxe de Sejour or Kurtaxe) is levied by many councils in European ski resorts. It varies by standard and type of accommodation and is age dependent, so not everyone is charged. It's not included in the basic price of your holiday and is usually paid locally. For reference, the average charged in winter 15/16 was between 50p and £2 per person, per night.

Nestled in the Finnish hills on the borders of Lapland, just south of the Arctic Circle, a visit here is a once-in-a-lifetime experience (and many return again and again). Sometimes called the ‘gateway to Lapland’, the resort was founded in the winter of 1954 when the first slope opened. Since then it’s flourished, winning ‘Finnish Ski Resort of the Year’ at the 2013 World Ski Awards - there are now 34 groomed runs and over 500km of cross country trails. Most packages have flights that go via Helsinki...
Whilst larger resorts can be a bit overwhelming, the compact, unintimidating ski area here is just right for first timers. Many of the lifts are beginner-friendly t-bars and Ruka also boasts the largest and oldest ski school in Finland. 41% of the runs are suitable for beginners – including the longest at 1.3km (blue 27 on the piste map). We also like number 7, which is a confidence boosting green that takes you back to the village. Intermediates are just as well catered for with 43% of slopes classified red...
Ruka’s well known in Finland for its vibrant and friendly après ski, with a number of bars, pubs and restaurants to suit all tastes. We love Chalet Ruka Peak where you can sip on cocktails and sample refined dishes in a smart, cosy lounge with stunning arctic views. If you’re feeling adventurous, don’t miss the Riipinen Wild Game Restaurant where reindeer, elk, bear and arctic fish are nearly always on the menu. The aptly named Classic Pizza Ruka has a friendly, informal setting. The Kontioluola bar regularl...

"Great if you have children"

The Bradfords & the Rickards, Reading
4/ out of 5
The apartments are quite modern and clean. I would definitely recommend staying here to families with small children over the Ruka log cabins, which are nice to stay in but are quite far out, it’s a long walk or bus ride to get to the skiing whereas these apartments are really close to the slopes. The kids could more or less ski back - they’d come off the slopes and use their poles to push past the restaurants right up to the door. You’re also right in the centre of the resort with the nearest supermarket just a 2 minute walk away. Our friends were in the apartment right next door which was great as the children could pop in and out. We had the bigger apartment which had 3 bedrooms. It was so nice having a proper oven as opposed to just a hot plate. Buying food is quite expensive there, although you can pay for half board if you want to. The suites were quite short of utensils and things like the tin opener were very basic and hard to use, but there were enough plates, knives and forks. The sauna inside was brilliant. The reps gave us pull along sledges which was good fun for getting around and you could also pull the shopping back.
