Overview - hotel description - Ruka Wooden Cabins description

A collection of traditional Finnish wooden cabins set amongst the woodland of the Vuosselinrinne area in East Ruka – ideal for families or a group of friends looking for a quiet and peaceful location. The Vuosseli slopes can be accessed by bus, as well as the West Ruka village centre. For those in ski school, all lessons begin in East Ruka, so the journey each morning is just a short ride over to the slopes.

The cabins inside are homely and warm with lots of authentic pine furniture and wood panelling. And with a drying cabinet and private sauna in each cabin, both you and your ski gear are sure to be warm and ready for a day on the slopes. Each cabin has a fully equipped kitchen, so you’ve got everything covered from hobs and oven to a microwave and coffee machine.

Spacious living rooms and open-plan dining areas mean the cabins are great for spending some quality time together or maybe trying to spot the Northern Lights from the window. For those extra cosy evenings in, choose the type C or C1 apartment for a fireplace in the living room. And when it’s time for bed, you have a ground floor bedroom and upstairs loft area, which provides compact yet snug sleeping space.

This package holiday to Ruka Wooden Cabins in Ruka, Finland / Lapland departs Sunday 26th January 2020, 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.

The aptly named Classic Pizza Ruka has a friendly, informal setting. The Kontioluola bar regularl...
