A destination for uniqueness
Ruka Peak is a exclusive family-run boutique hotel located in one of the most beautiful areas in Finnish Lapland - Kuusamo. A unique location on top of the Ruka mountain right next to ski slopes offers a great view of Lappish scenery. A quiet, calm and chic hotel experience – this is why Ruka Peak is chosen every year by regular clients. Travelers who are in search of quality, nature experiences and superb dining will experience something totally unique.
Nature and wild life
At Ruka Peak dreaming of a winter wonderland will become reality. Kuusamo area nature experiences will ensure your memorable journey through this harsh and yet so beautiful part of the world. Midnight sun that stays up 24 hours a day during Summer is bringing contrast to darker winter, lit by white snow and moonlight. In autumn colours will fill the forests during the time we Finns call “Ruska”. During spring time water will flow again and Kuusamo region rapids and nature parks are waking up after the winter. Every season you visit our region and hotel we will ensure that memories last longer than files on your phone. Natural Luxury is what we stand for.
Boutique Hotel Ruka Peak offers 6 double rooms and two suites. All rooms are decorated in a modern style and with natural materials. The colour scheme is individually designed in every room to make them unique. Our rooms boast of amazing views looking out on the superb scenery of the northern wilderness. If you are lucky, you may catch the exotic aurora borealis in full view from our large windows.
Restaurant Peak offers modern Wild Food culinary experiences in a beautiful atmosphere and with a great vista for the Aurora Borealis. Regular Michelin star chef visits among the locally-curated menus will bring you to a journey around northern Finland that you will never forget. Local fish, game and other ingredients are at the heart of Peak’s culinary journey. Feel it, taste it and come and enjoy it with us.
Sauna World and Spa
The speciality of Ruka Peak is the Sauna World built into a cave. Bathing in a traditional smoke sauna underground is an experience you will never forget. The evening will be completed with a leisurely bath in a bath barrel under the dark sky lit by stars and northern lights. There are two caves altogether, the first with a changing room and the second with a shower room and smoke sauna.
Notes from our guest book
Dinner at Peak
"My friend and I dined here on the recommendation of one of the locals and she was right, this restaurant is a gem! We wanted to find somewhere nice for a treat of Lappish food for our last night in Ruka and I would have to say the meal I had was the best I've eaten. I ordered the trout for entree and reindeer for main while my friend order the set menu which also came with local cheeses and cheesecake, sorbet and fresh wild berries. The flavours of all dishes were out of this world! The sizes were good and very reasonably priced for what we had. The setting was stunning looking out over a high side with snow capped trees. The service was outstanding. Could not fault anything it was perfect!"

Great intimate atmosphere
"Have returned to Chalet Ruka Peak several times now, and always had a great time. Very good food and wine, and warm cosy en suite rooms - all with fantastic views over the mountainside. Spectacular snow formations on the trees, unlike anywhere else I've seen. Stylish decoration and toasty open fires in winter. Lovely staff. If you're feeling adventurous, try the traditional Finnish smoke sauna. Highly recommended."

Peak service and food top!
"Ruka Peak Chalet delivered peak performance again! The service was very nice and friendly. The food exceeded all expectations. One of Finland’s top chefs, Pekka Terävä, and his team had prepared a mouth-watering menu. Local delicacies served in an easy-going way and combined with great Italian wines did the trick. Absolutely awesome! Can really be recommended!" -

Peace for body and mind, and a fantastic Smoke Sauna
"Attended a three day event at the Hotel, and it was one of the best experiences in Lapland. Comfortabele rooms, maybe the beds could be upgraded, good breakfast and dinners, but best of all the peace and magic landscape just outside your window or balcony. The SPA with a genuine smoke sauna and hot tubs is unique, a visit there will bring incredible energy to you after a day out in the snow."

"Fantastic hotel! On top of the highest mountain in Ruka. Skiing out of the hotel and the elevator ends just a few meters higher than the hotel so you can return on skis to the front door. Food is great. That the chef has worked in Marseille in a Michelin star restaurant is noticeable, the looks and tastes are great. Value for money is excellent. And the private sauna is amazing."

"Authentic, romantic and breathtaking stay.
We had an incredible one-night stay at the Ruka peak in late autumn (October). Ruka peak is a family-owned hotel and restaurant. We were very pleased with the service we received: beautifully presented breakfast and candle light sauna just for two of us."
