Resort Overview


Area Profile


Finland's premier ski resort Ruka is situated in the unspoilt beauty of the natural wilderness some 60kms south of the Arctic Circle and 20kms west of the Russian border.

Ruka is one of Finland's largest and most modern resorts. It is a great uncrowded resort in which to learn to ski. The Ruka ski school offers a package for first timers and new recruits will learn quickly under the guidance of the friendly English speaking instructors.

The groomed pistes in the area provide plenty of scope to work on technique, the red runs on the western side of the mountain are particularly enjoyable. Expert skiers will enjoy the steeper black runs on the north and western side of the mountain.

Facilities include snowmobiling, dog sledding, and a huge indoor tropical pool complex nearby. The snow making system ensures a long season from mid-October to mid-May.
