Overview - apartment description - Ruka Valley Apartments description

The Ruka Valley Apartments are a great pick for families and groups who want a peaceful wintery retreat. It’s tucked in a car-free zone between the Ruka ski area and the Valtavaara nature reserve – this is a quiet spot where you can really appreciate the snowy Finnish scenery. If you want to visit a bar or restaurant, then the Village-2-Valley gondola will get you to the centre of Ruka village in 5 minutes. It’d be hard to get closer to slopes, so starting your ski day is a breeze. Just step outside and the nearest lift is a snowball’s throw away and it’s a one minute walk to the nursery area. At the end of the day you can ski right back to the accommodation.

The building has been designed to complement the forested landscape, with stone walls and weathered timber. Inside, you can choose from a range of cosy studios and spacious apartments, all finished to a high standard with stylish grey and pastel colour themes. For an extra touch of luxury, stay in a type E1 apartment, where you can soak up mountain views while having a dip in the outdoor hot tub.

Evenings here are all about snug nights in. Head to the Ruka Valley bar to enjoy a nightcap and some live music, before having a relaxing session in your own private sauna.

As for mealtimes, you can choose the freedom of being fully self-catered and grab some ingredients from the mini-market in the hotel to whip up tasty meals. Or if you’d prefer to leave the cooking to someone else, then you can opt for bed & breakfast or upgrade to half-board. Meals are taken in the onsite CampKitchen restaurant – with a buffet-style breakfast to start the day and 3-course evening meal to round things off.

This package holiday to Ruka Valley Apartments in Ruka, Finland / Lapland departs Sunday 16th January 2022, 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 there are now 35 groomed runs and over 500km of cross country trails. Most packages have flights that go via Helsinki and land at Kuusamo Airport. From here it’s an easy 30-minute road transf...
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 Ruka Peak (previously voted the best wild game restaurant in Finland) 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 fri...
