In the olden days, Apukka’s shores were bustling with fishermen, providing a bounty of deliciousness that we have incorporated into our present-day menus. The surrounding forests, full of berries and mushrooms, injected elements of colour and texture that made each and every meal not only nourishing to the body but comforting for the soul. The old tavern that once stood here hosted travelers from all around the country and world; always providing a place of comfort where the food was always hardy and plentiful and the glasses were never empty.

At Apukka Resort, we honor the past and cherish the traditions of old Apukka. Serving delicious, Nordic cuisine, Restaurant Aitta has blended classic flavors and ingredients with a contemporary flair; using as many locally-sourced ingredients, as possible.

Today, we continue to welcome travelers from around the world to rest, eat and soak in the comfort and wonderment of our beautiful location.

Welcome, dear friends. Your table awaits.
