Ruka sits 80km south of the Arctic Circle, close to Kuusamo airport and the Russian border, in a region known for abundant and enduring snow.  A lively, upbeat resort with a newly developed pedestrian village offering good but widely spread cabin lodging served by the ski bus.


The slopes sit on two sides of a single low hill, with a mix of open and forest terrain, most floodlit and with snowmaking coverage. None is particularly steep and the vertical very modest - though there is a new FIS racing piste; as well as a terrain park and snowcross course. The cross-country scope is vast: 500km, of which 40km are floodlit.
