A nice place. Really modern, part of a newish block. It was very cold outside (-18 degrees!) but the apartments were nice and warm and there was a sauna adjacent to the bathroom.

Overview - hotel description - Ruka Village Hotel & Apartments description

Just looking at the Ruka Village Hotel and Apartments, it’s obvious they were designed with skiers in mind. The location is perfect - in the middle of a pedestrian village, less than a minutes’ walk from the ski lifts, so you grab fresh tracks. The main ski school area is a short shuttle ride away on the east side of the mountain and the bus stop is a few steps from the hotel door.

Ruka is a small resort, so all the amenities are close by. The Kumpare shopping centre is right next door, so you can stock up in the supermarket, play a few games in the bowling alley, or let the kids run riot in the Adventure House indoor play area.

You can choose between a hotel studio or a self-catering apartment, the latter being larger and great for families or groups. Whichever you go for, the rooms are spacious, warm and modern in design. All of them have well-equipped kitchens – especially handy given that dining out can be quite expensive.

Arguably the best feature of the rooms is the Finnish staple – a private sauna. Or you can go a step further and choose a Type G apartment, which comes with its own hot tub on the balcony– you’ll definitely thank yourself after a day spent in sub-zero temperatures.

Breakfast is included if you’re staying in a studio. Taken in the Colorado bar, you can dig into the generous buffet to set you up for the day.

This package holiday to Ruka Village Hotel & Apartments in Ruka, Finland / Lapland departs Sunday 6th February 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...

"Good value for money and right next to the lifts"

Richard Harrigan, Essex
5/ out of 5
A nice place. Really modern, part of a newish block. It was very cold outside (-18 degrees!) but the apartments were nice and warm and there was a sauna adjacent to the bathroom. They came with a kitchen and everything you needed, a dishwasher, a hob, etc. Lovely apartments and good value. They are right next to the lifts which is ideal if you are a beginner. There is a supermarket behind the apartments in the block next door and that was well equipped – we ate in most of the time. There is also a restaurant in the hotel next door, we had breakfast there and ate a meal there too, it was good, sort of American grill type food. The only reason I wouldn’t go back is that it was so cold and dark while we were there, best to look at the weather beforehand and go at a different time of year.
