Following an increase of UK holidaymakers to Finnish Lapland over this season, Crystal Ski Holidays have added a new flight from Birmingham to Finland for two months of next winter.

The flight will offer skiers and families who live in the Midlands direct access to the resorts of Ruka, Salla and Iso Syöte in Finnish Lapland. Finland is a popular winter activity destination whether for skiing — it’s a great place to learn with gentle slopes — dog sledding, reindeer sleigh rides, snowmobile safaris and the opportunity to see the Northern Lights.

As well as gentle slopes for beginners, Finland has consistent snow coverage into May, with some steeper runs through forests and terrain parks for intermediates and the more advanced.
Ville Aho CEO of Ruka Ski Resort said: “With large investment in Ruka, with new express chairs and gondolas being built for 2018/19, it’s great to see our long standing partnership with Crystal Ski Holidays continues to grow with the addition of this new flight. Ruka remains committed to becoming the best family ski resort in the world with the most reliable, non-glacier snow conditions. We know, the British love this and are looking forwards to welcoming more of them next season.”
Crystal’s flights will run from Birmingham starting 16 December 2018, with the last departure on 17 February 2019.

Michael Brabin, Senior Purchasing Manager Crystal Ski Holidays added: “Ruka, Salla and Iso Syöte are snow sure, great to learn to ski and they also offer a huge number of other activities.” 

The price for a holiday starts from £484 per person (based on four sharing) for a seven-night’s stay at the four-star Ruka Suites in Ruka with flights from Birmingham to Kuusamo and transfers (price for departure on 6 January 2019).
