Rukan Salonki Chalets are located only 20mn by taxi from Kuusamo Airport. The chalet are wonderful. The architecture, the genuine design all in wood and stones, and the decoration are very fine. We were staying in Chalet #13 which has 6 rooms for 2, a nice and large living room, a small kitchen and very nice sauna. The food for breakfast and evening dinner are very good and local. The team is great and pays attention everyday to make sure you are happy. There is sledge run in front of the restaurant where our kids spent an hour after each meal... So the whole family loved this journey at Rukan Salonki Chalets!

We stayed here as a group of 14 in two chalets (11 & 12) and really, really enjoyed the resort. We used it as a base for lots of activities - snow-mobiles, husky sleds, reindeer farm and even skiing (the ski resort is a couple of kilometres away and so beginner friendly). We spent evenings in our chalets which were well equipped - integral sauna, log fire, underfloor heating, good kitchen/diner etc etc. The resort is spread over many acres and walking from our chalet to the restaurant was fun as we had to go past the toboggan hill which most of us could not resist ! The xc ski network passes right by and through the resort linking it to the town and ski centre. Breakfast was buffet style and although it came close to running a bit low on some foods on a couple of days in truth there was always enough food even for the hungriest of guests ! The staff were super friendly and helpful and a credit to the resort. There is an ice bar linked to the restaurant but when we visited (18-24 Feb 19) it was closed so with the permission and help from staff we opened it ourselves and had our own champagne and wine party ! We would recommend this resort as a perfect base for visiting this part of Finland.

We planned a trip to Rukan Salonki for the Smoke Sauna experience. We were a group of 7 and the evening was lovely. We arrived and the sauna house was all set up for us, including some snacks and drinks. We were able to use the sauna, the Jacuzzi, and the ice bathing area for over 2 hours. The facility was comfortable, and the shower area well equipped. I was very impressed with the experience and the rest of our group said it was the highlight of the trip.

We stayed in chalet nr 12 which is quite a luxury treat. The service of the staff on site was impeccable, the chalet itself we'll build in the typical wooden style, beautiful outside view, fully equipped kitchen, all 6 bedrooms included a bathroom with shower and had very good beds. A sauna is also available. Plenty of room to send time together as friends, or to spend time on your own. They work with professional local agencies that can provide you your a la carte Lapland experience ... Certainly to be recommended !!!!

A great place for winter or summer holidays with your family or a group. As you can see on the pictures you have a perfect view on the rising sun. A real Winterwonderland close to Ruka. Friendly staff.
