Brand-new for 2018, the Ruka Forest Cabins offer a unique escape into the Finnish fells. Combining traditional deadwood construction with contemporary design and materials, each semi-detached cabin is modern and cosy. Tucked away in the snow-capped forests a few minutes’ drive from the resort of Ruka, these cabins have a secluded, tranquil feel whilst also having a great selection of activities and amenities right on their doorstep. Each cabin has its own private sauna and provides beautiful sky views from the partially glazed roof in each bedroom.
Within a few hundred metres of the cabins there is a restaurant serving hearty, locally-sourced and inspired meals that are as tasty as they are warming. If you fancy going a bit further afield there are 180 kilometres of cross-country skiing trails available around Ruka which are accessible from the forests surrounding the cabins. For those interested in alpine skiing and snowboarding the local ski bus stops regularly at the cabins and it’s a short ride to the peaceful slopes of Ruka’s ski resort. In addition, we can arrange a selection of privately run activities straight from your villa, for a truly bespoke holiday.
There are a range of catering options available including self-catered, grocery delivery, meals served in your cabin, or options to eat in the restaurant. Restaurant and sauna centre (must be booked and payable locally) nearby, including smoke sauna, ice sauna and an outdoor hot tub. There are a variety of local activities and adventures available. All cabins include a well-equipped kitchen, open plan living/dining area, log fire and private sauna.
