Royal Ruka is a second generation, family owned hotel and restaurant in operation since 1998. 
We offer our guests and visitors a unique and delicious taste experience. Our menu features classic
dishes with locally sourced ingredients, such as vandace, the small freshwater fish from the lakes and
rivers of the region, reindeer that grazed on the fells and wild berries picked up by Irmeli, our long-
term hotel hostess. We welcome you to enjoy the food and our exceptional wine and beer selection!
