Full description

Wilderness views and the northern lights

The fells, forests and frozen lakes surrounding Ruka provide a tranquil setting for a winter escape with a touch of luxury. On this holiday you can choose from a range of stunning log cabins and by spending several nights in such a pristine location, away from artificial light pollution, you’ll increase your chances of seeing the elusive aurora borealis.

Winter activities in Ruka

Ruka offers a wealth of winter activities, including snowmobiling, dog sledding, snowshoeing and cross-country skiing. Popular choices are the snowmobile excursions which combine a visit to either a reindeer farm or husky kennels so you can sample two or three different activities in one go. Activities can be booked in advance. The resort offers fantastic downhill skiing with pistes suitable for all abilities located just a short distance from your accommodation.
