    Just looking at the Ruka Village Hotel and Apartments, it’s obvious they were designed with skiers in mind. The location is perfect - in the middle of a pedestrian village, less than a minutes’ walk from the ski lifts, so you grab fresh tracks. The main ski school area is a short shuttle ride away on the east side of the mountain and the bus stop is a few steps from the hotel door.

    Ruka is a small resort, so all the amenities are close by. The Kumpare shopping centre is right next door, so you can stock up in the supermarket, play a few games in the bowling alley, or let the kids run riot in the Adventure House indoor play area.

    You can choose between a hotel studio or a self-catering apartment, the latter being larger and great for families or groups. Whichever you go for, the rooms are spacious, warm and modern in design. All of them have well-equipped kitchens – especially handy given that dining out can be quite expensive.

    Arguably the best feature of the rooms is the Finnish staple – a private sauna. Or you can go a step further and choose a Type G apartment, which comes with its own hot tub on the balcony – you’ll definitely thank yourself after a day spent in sub-zero temperatures.

    Breakfast is included if you’re staying in a studio. Taken in the Colorado bar, you can dig into the generous buffet to set you up for the day.

Ratings

With all the various national tourist boards applying widely varying criteria to hotel ratings, the whole question of international hotel grades has become confused. We have therefore applied our own 'rating', representing the general standards of that country in order that fairer comparisons can be made.

Please note: rating may differ from the official star rating of the local tourist board. Our classifications take into account not only the basic facilities, but also the location, leisure facilities, general character and atmosphere of the hotel, as well as customer feedback. Chalet ratings give comparisons with other chalets but do not provide like for like comparisons with the ratings of full service hotels.

Your package price and availability

Our website's prices and flight, accommodation and room availability are updated every morning. To calculate average price per person, applicable discounts are subtracted from your total cost, which is then divided by the number of adults and children (excluding infants). A full price breakdown can be viewed on the payment page.

In some circumstances, prices and availability may update during the day so you may find price/availability differences later in the booking process.

This is usually due to high demand for the selected holiday. Should you have any issues with this, please contact us or see here for more information.
