Then, it’s time to check in and settle down in your spectacular accommodation. Your activities will be distributed nicely along with your stay, and you can also book more activities from our reception.

DAYS 2-4 Active days in Apukka Resort

Daily buffet breakfast at our atmospheric Restaurant Aitta is included.

Apukka Resort is genuinely in the middle of Lappish nature. During the autumn season (from September to mid-November), you have more time to explore Arctic forests and lakes, preparing for winter. The pace of life slows down after the vivid summer season. Here one never runs out of things to do. From dining in our beautiful Restaurant Aitta, to feeling the thrill of different adventures, we guarantee you won’t have a dull moment during your stay with us.

Tour 1: Meet Reindeer & Huskies and visit Santa Claus Village, 4hrs

On this tour, you meet the two most iconic animals of Lapland! First, the reindeer herders tell you about the reindeer’s year, while you can feed them with their favourite snacks.

After photo moments with reindeer, we take a short walk through the forest to meet our furry friends – huskies! The dogs will welcome you by barking and wagging tales! The musher will be happy to tell you about these super athletes of the animal world and their life in the Arctic. After all, you can sit by the fire to enjoy hot drinks and stories about living in Lapland.

We finish the day with a visit to Santa Claus Village, where you meet Santa Claus himself. You will also have time for shopping and visiting Santa Claus Main Post Office.

Tour 2: Trip to Ranua Wildlife Park, 5hrs

Meet the famous polar bear family and about 200 other arctic animals of 50 different species at Ranua Wildlife Park, only about an hour’s drive from Rovaniemi. It’s great fun to watch the animals play.

Along the 2,8m park trail, you will meet magnificent owls, eagles, arctic foxes, otters, beavers, moose, wolves, wolverines, lynx, brown bears, wild boars, and many more in their natural habitat with plenty of space. This entertaining and educational day trip is suitable for everyone. The Ranua Wildlife Park offers a variety of experiences for every season: arctic species have adapted to the changing seasons, and they live in their most authentic atmosphere – in the forest of the far north.

This day trip is for true animal lovers!
