There are great facilities for boarders, including two snowboard parks featuring two different half-pipes, as well as a fun and challenging assortment of tabletops, rails and corners. With the opening of the international level Vuosseli SuperPipe in February 2003 and the re-shaped BoarderCross course, Ruka has the feel of being a real snowboarders’ resort.

Lessons in alpine skiing, cross-country, snowboarding and telemark are available at the Ruka Ski School, where tuition is given by some of the best skiers in Finland. The cross-country skiing possibilities in particular are exceptional; beginners and experts alike can enjoy the extensive, highly varied trail network.

The standard of accommodation is high and a large amount of money has been invested in making this resort one of the best in Scandinavia. There is a wide selection of restaurants, where the atmosphere is relaxed and informal. Try the traditional dishes on offer, which use local produce such as game, fish, berries and mushrooms.

There is also a variety of indoor sports and facilities to keep you occupied for when the weather gets really chilly, not to mention rounding off your day with a relaxing Finnish sauna. Après ski amusements include DJs playing the latest club music, live bands, dancing and karaoke (very popular in Finland) to take you into the small hours.

"Just home from Christmas in Val d'Isere... this was the best ski holiday I have ever been on. Val is stunning, the hotel fabulous, staff sensational and skiing out of this world. We booked through Iglu. They were fantastic. Peter had great ski knowledge, offered advice and went the extra mile. " - Pamela (Dec 2015)
