Lakeside Luxury in a Winter Wilderness

Come in from the cold and relax in the cosy surroundings of the Rukatonttu Hotel in the picturesque area of Ruka. Overlooking the serene waters of Lake Talvijärvi, the Rukatonttu Hotel is a haven for skiers, nature lovers and intrepid explorers. Presenting a contemporary glass and wood façade, this family-friendly residence boasts invitingly, rustic interiors and a welcoming ambience. Comprising a main hotel, 35 apartments and a restaurant, this beautifully appointed accommodation combines traditional Finnish design with modern aspects that complement its pristine environment. The Rukatonttu Hotel provides ample opportunity for guests to enjoy uninterrupted views of the lake and surrounding vistas. 


The Rukatonttu Hotel is located in the Ruka ski resort where guests have immediate access to the pistes. There are several trails and paths around the hotel, so strap on your snowshoes and get exploring! Your accommodation is ideally located for an array of winter activities including snowmobiling, husky safaris and reindeer sled riding. One of the many highlights of the area is its location in the Arctic which makes it prone to appearances from the Northern Lights. Enjoy snowmobiling expeditions into the wilderness as you go in search of the Aurora. Ruka village is just a short walk from the Rukatonttu Hotel and is an entirely pedestrianised area with a subterranean car park.

Hotel Facilities

Having worked up an appetite making the most of the incredible landscapes, visit the hotel’s first-class restaurant which presents menus created from locally sourced produce. Enjoy evenings at PubTonttu where you can sip your favourite tipple around the fireplace and share tales of your trip so far with fellow travellers. Guests who have braved the waters of the lake can warm up in the hotel’s soothing smoke sauna. You may also wish to indulge in spa treatments during your stay, which should be booked 24 hours in advance. Guests at the Rukatonttu Hotel also have complimentary access to ski-maintenance facilities.
