Visitor Reviews of Ruka

Malcolm from United Kingdom writes:

As an experienced cross country skier I really enjoyed Ruka in January.
The skiing was limited to about 70km of tracks, but these took you over three beautiful fells, so I was quite happy to ski them all in both directions.
The tracks were well groomed for both classic and skating, but too demanding for the not-quite-novices in our group.
(complete novices are well looked after by the ski school - but once you've got the basics you want to get out there exploring, and this was quite hard, with most routes including red or black sections).
The countryside at Ruka is beautiful and the colours of the arctic sky inspiring.
The downhill slopes were very well groomed, and I was able to ski some of the blue runs on my cross country gear.
