This collection of traditional wooden cabins is set among the trees of the Vuosselinrinne area in East Ruka – ideal for families or a group of friends looking for a peaceful break.
You can hop on a bus to the Vuosseli slopes and 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 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 so you'll have 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.
