The Resort Of Ruka Valley

Ruka Valley, lies in the east of Lapland.  It nestles beside the picturesque Valtavaara National Park in the heart of Santa's magical homeland.

In this little gem of an Arctic resort we offer a choice of apartments at the Hotel Ruka Valley, with additional apartments for larger parties close by for the 3-night Magical Interlude holiday.

If you're looking for a more traditional style accommodation in Lapland, we also offer a range of cosy Log Cabins, Chalets, Log Apartments and Lodges. These are set amidst the most beautiful scenery, and nestle on the very edge of Ruka; but there's no need to worry about having a long walk into the village as we provide courtesy transport to take you to the restaurants for your meals.

Yet, if you prefer to be in the centre of things, with shops and bars close at hand, there's no better place to stay than the Scandic Rukahovi Hotel, which lies at the heart of Ruka ski village.

Situated only 25 minutes from Kuusamo Airport,  staying in Ruka means you'll be able to maximise your time in Lapland while creating magical memories together. You and your family will have plenty of time to experience the thrill of a fast paced husky safari and can enjoy a romantic reindeer sleigh ride through the forest and a host of other Arctic activities as you search for the big man himself, Santa.
