Cosy Log Cabins in an Idyllic Setting

Experience the ultimate cosy retreat in a log cabin at Rukan Salonki

For travellers that wish to escape to the pristine environments of northern Finland, the chalets at Rukan Salonki offer the perfect retreat. Allowing guests to partake in a range of activities throughout the year, a stay there really generates a sense of wellbeing and lets you reconnect with nature. Whether you are cross country skiing in the winter or rowing on the lake in summer, there is a wealth of wildlife to see. Due to the northerly location of Rukan Salonki, it is possible to see the Northern Lights from time to time during winter, and the summertime is characterised by long, lingering hours of daylight, letting guests enjoy the unspoilt nature as late as they like.


Situated amongst the pristine natural world of north eastern Finland, the Rukan Salonki chalets enjoy a prime position beside the idyllic Salonkijärvi Lake. The nearest airport is in Kuusamo, which is only a 20 minutes’ drive away. Nearby is the charming ski resort of Ruka, where there are plenty of shops, bars and restaurants. The surrounding forests are ideal for taking long, leisurely hikes, while the lake lends itself to canoeing and fishing. In winter, guests can take advantage of the network of trails from right outside Rukan Salonki, which are perfect for cross country skiing and snowmobiling.
