Visitor Reviews of Ruka
Steve Jackson from United Kingdom writes:
Just heading out for second visit to Ruka. Absolutely love it. Accommodation is just fine with private saunas, log burners and so on in self-catering apartment. Skiing is great for anyone up to expert with a wide variety of shortish but fun piste. As the wind blows quite well all day there is never a shortage of soft lederhosen in the runs, nor is there a shortage of cafes around the mountain to warm up with a nice hot chocolate or whatever. Sun comes up about 10am and is gone again by 2pm so lots of spot-lit skiing which is surprisingly good fun and not difficult. You need to pack your big girls pants because it gets really, really cold. Not surprisingly that close to the Arctic Circle. For a break from the slopes I would recommend the snowmobile safari though there is loads of other stuff to do. Overall, a fantastic winter holiday.
