Activities included

This itinerary features a range of included activities


Based near the village of Ruka, one of Finland’s premier winter resorts, this short break offers superb log cabin accommodation, world-class pistes, a great range of exciting activities and a chance to witness the northern lights. The high quality cabins are the perfect choice for families and groups of friends travelling together, ranging from three to seven bedrooms and surrounded by the beautiful snow-covered fells of Finnish Lapland.

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.


Arrive in Helsinki and transfer to your hotel for an overnight stay. Enjoy the many sights of the capital, famous for its Neoclassical architecture mixed with modern Scandinavian design, by foot or by tram. There are numerous art galleries, museums, historical churches, botanic gardens and much more to discover.

Make your way back to the airport for your onward flight to Kuusamo. Transfer to Rukan Salonki and take your pick of optional activities such as snowmobiling, husky sledding, snowshoeing and a visit to a reindeer farm. Some can be combined in a single tour. Try out the ski slopes and relax in the sauna back at your accommodation.
