Holiday Club Ruka

Holiday Club Ruka

The Ruka–Kuusamo region is one of the most popular winter holiday destinations in Finland. Ruka’s ski slopes and Kuusamo’s cross-country ski trails make the area a paradise for winter sports enthusiasts. In summer, visitors hike around the famous Karhunkierros (‘bear run’) route; they go fishing and simply enjoy the nature around them.


There are two Holiday Club destinations in Ruka: Holiday Club Pulkkajärvi, where our log cabins are situated in a naturally beautiful setting with peace and quiet, and Holiday Club Ruka Loma, which is approximately 3 km from the ski centre. The Holiday Club Kuusamon Tropiikki’s spa and restaurants are just a 15-minute drive away.

Activities and services

The skiing season at Ruka usually begins in October and lasts until after the first of May. Local companies provide programme services that will take you on snowmobile or snowshoe safaris and on trips to reindeer farms. In summer Kuusamo has magnificent hiking terrain and the colourful autumn also offers an excellent holiday setting.
