Visitor Reviews of Ruka

Cheryl from Finland writes:

Ruka is a beautiful village. Ski runs are short but well groomed. We booked Finland as all reviews said no lift queues. Absolute rubbish the queues are as bad as the Alps so be prepared to queue at February half-term in cold temps. The lifts are old, mostly drag lifts and often break down. There are masses of people on the slopes during half-term and be prepared for beginners trying to plough down red and black routes! We will come back here but not during February half-term. The Finnish people are all friendly and the slopes are kept in excellent condition.
