  • A superb place to learn to ski - wide slopes and very few people on them means perfect conditions!
  • No queues at lifts, empty pistes and great instructors
  • Most runs open until 7pm - as floodlit for maximum usage


  • Lack of out and out expert pistes - although there is some great off piste
  • If you eat out it can be an expensive experience - especially on the alcohol side of things

On the slopes

With 29 slopes there really is something for everyone in the bright Ruka ski resort. The ski pistes total 57km as well as 600km of skidoo routes to create an enjoyable trip for everyone. The highest peak provides some good slopes along with the longest at 1300m. 20 ski lifts allow skiers to navigate the mountains easily and night illumination allows the trails to stay open until 11pm on Fridays which is one of the latest ski openings across Finland.

Moguls on a few expert trails are also present at Ruka for those who want to challenge themselves on the trails as well as moguls that can be used to train on. A super pipe trail is often available for those who like to ski within the confines of a well marked trail.

Off the slopes

If you can tear yourself off the slopes for a minute you may never get back due to the wide range of activities that surround the Ruka ski resort area. For sports enthusiasts the snowmobile excursions, snowgolf, and Snowshoeing may appeal. On the other hand, for those who want to see the full scenic value of the area winter driving, fishing, and the Northern lights may appeal as well as a bath in the outdoor thermal springs that allow you to soak under the falling snow.

Additionally, for families the winter activities, reindeer safaris, dog-sled safaris, and Kumpare Kindgarden may appeal. There are also a wide variety of shops and restaurants that will make your stay enjoyable and full. In the evenings the Finns know how to enjoy themselves, and although not a thumping lively après ski resort, they know how to enjoy themselves. Recommended is the Ski Bistro at Hotel Rantasipi.
