Natural Luxury

The harsh but beautiful landscape creates a rhythm of life in these latitudes. The Northern nature is defined by its distinct four seasons, each offering something unique to experience. See the midnight sun in the Summer, or the dark Winter months when moonlight paints the world blue. Come in the Autumn when the forest performs its ritual Ruska, turning into a colourful display of red, yellow and orange as far as the eye can see. Or experience the Springtime, when the melting snow reinvigorates springs and streams of water that nurture the awakening earth.

Wake up with a restorative yoga, explore the raw and beautiful nature, hit the slopes, enjoy sauna and jacuzzi under the Northern lights, and unwind in our stunning restaurant with local and seasonal food, and high quality wine and cocktails. We value our nature and believe in natural luxury. That’s why we want you too to experience it as wholeheartedly as possible, whatever that looks like for you. We ensure you will make memories to last a lifetime.

Hotel

Hotel Chalet Ruka Peak offers 6 double rooms and 2 suites. All rooms are decorated in a modern style, with natural materials and unique colour schemes. Our rooms have 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

Elevating the experience of our remarkable surroundings is the ethos of the Ruka Peak Restaurant. Our on-site restaurant is ran by acclaimed chef Matti Jämsen and his passionate and creative team of professionals. The intimate restaurant offers a striking view over the hills and a relaxed atmosphere in which to truly immerse yourself in a Northern culinary journey.

Sauna World & Spa

The speciality of Ruka Peak is the Sauna World built into a cave in the west wing of the building. 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.

From our guestbook

Great intimate atmosphere
"Have returned to 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 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. Comfortable 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."

Fairytale White
"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."

Bentley Power On Ice
"I stayed here for three nights whilst on the Bentley Power On Ice. I cannot recommend this venue highly enough. Located in a truly outstanding location with beautiful well-equipped chalets it was the perfect winter wonderland experience."

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!"

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."
