Kilometre-long frozen lakes, acres of snow-topped trees, and first-class ski slopes with the nightlife to match are all staples of holidays to Ruka. Holidays to Kuusamo serve up some stellar, snow-blanketed scenery – this peaceful town’s a great spot to see the best of Finland’s natural beauty.


This place looks out over a pine-cloaked fell, so wintery views are a permanent fixture. It’s in a handy location, too, with slopes nearby, and ski tracks leading from the doorstep to Äkäslompolo village, 5 minutes away.

The hotel mixes modern and traditional décor. Outside, glass and wood dominate, while inside, everything centres round a flagstoned lobby bar. Rooms are simple, and they all come with their own sauna.

This hotel comes with a SnowClub, where children can get involved with entertainment and activities. You can join the SnowClub entertainment team and our mascot Captain T for indoor and outdoor activities. Like snowdog-building and tobogganing, snowgolf and marshmallow toasting. There's lots of entertainment, too, like pantomimes and festive-themed parties.

Duplex family room covers two floors, and features two twin bedrooms, plus 1 child's bed in the lounge. And there's a separate bathroom with shower. Twin rooms are available too, and they accommodate up to 3 people – and include 1 child's bed in the bedroom.

The buffet restaurant is set behind floor-to-ceiling windows that open up panoramic views of the fells. The menu features Finnish dishes, as well as home-from-home favourites like chips and burgers.

This Lapland resort in northern Finland is split into two villages on either side of a mountain. There’s just a smattering of shops and restaurants here – and that’s exactly the appeal.
