Northern Lights



A stunning winter break in the Finnish ski resort of Ruka, with a ski pass and a snowmobile Northern Lights hunt, plus a pick of activites and all travel

Just below the Arctic Circle and close to the Russian border, Finland’s winter playground of Ruka has always been a go-to spot for skiers, snowboarders and those keen to get stuck into all sorts of icy, adrenaline-charged activities. So it comes as no surprise that this sparkling new property located less than a minute's walk from the main ski lifts is such a game changer.

Complete with genius ski-in ski-out slope access from an underground heated parking hall, everything here is geared up for an upscale self-catering stay, but with the bonus of hotel-style luxuries. All of the contemporary-styled rooms come with a balcony, bathroom with shower, kitchenette and drying cabinet for clothes. There’s also a flatscreen TV with DVD player, fresh bed linen and towels, complimentary Wi-Fi and your own private sauna.

Elsewhere, you’ll find ski storage, a breakfast room, and helpful staff who’ll happily help with recommendations and specific requests during your stay. There’s also a decent selection of apres-ski bars, restaurants and cafes within walking distance, alongside 34 groomed runs and 500 kilometres of cross-country trails to delight beginners, intermediates and freestylers.

Along with your one-day ski pass with included equipment and a magical starlit snowmobile safari to try to catch the whimsical Northern Lights, you have the incredible choice of a snowshoeing trip to Oulanka National Park or a visit to a husky farm, with a bracing 10-kilometre ride behind the speedy dogs.

Good to know

The Northern Lights are of course a naturally occurring phenomenon, so while you will have a good chance of seeing them (and we'll cross our fingers for you), we cannot guarantee they will oblige.
