Tunturilomat consists of two semi-detached houses located at the end of Veskantie road in Ruka, Kuusamo. Apartments 1-4 have been designated as snowy owls according to the species of owl in the northern tundra. The Alaskan and Greenland Eskimos consider the owl as a mysterious creature that can help a stranded traveler. According to an ancient North American story, the wizard turned a girl into a long-nosed bird. The frightened girl flew recklessly to the rock wall. The nose twisted and shortened – and the first snowy owl was born.
In front of the buildings in the middle yard is a grill house for use by all our guests. The grill house has a wood-powered grill (~ 45cmx45cm) as well as seatings and a table. Closer to the entrance road is a wood shed where you can also find waste disposal center.
There is a car park in front of the wood shed where you can also find a car heating plugs. From the corner of the parking area there is a path leading to our boat beach which is about 150 meters from the cottage. The beach has a pier, a boat that is shared with our other guests and a campfire site. Here you can do fishing from the clear water of Lake Iso-Veska!

The cottages are surrounded by unspoiled forest. In the middle of the semi-detached houses there is an entrance recess, from which the apartments have their own entrance.
