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.


The Scandic Rukahovi's a winner when it comes to scenery. It sits at the bottom of Ruka's ski slopes, and the back of the property brushes shoulders with a pine forest. There's lots to do nearby, from hiking to reindeer safaris.

Inside, this place keeps things cosy. Red plaid patterned accessories and wooden beams give a warm, rustic feel. You'll find a few big, stone fireplaces dotted around, too.

The rooms here come with a TV, a dryer for wet clothes, a kettle, and Wi-Fi*. In superior rooms individual tea or coffee sachets, plus a kettle are provided. Apartments are located away from the main building, about a 5 to 10-minute walk away. Duplex studios with a sauna are also available.

Ruka hugs Lapland’s southern border. This ski town’s first slope was opened back in 1954, and it now boasts a grand total of 29 runs. And the floodlit slopes mean that you don’t have to limit your skiing to daylight hours. There's also a huge slope where you can watch skiers turning some eye-popping tricks. Ruka has plenty more feathers in its cap, though. Its après-ski credentials are top-notch – you can take your pick of heated terraces and bars.
