Have you always dreamed of meeting the Arctic Animals of Lapland? If yes – this animal lovers’ adventure package is perfect for you!
During your five days in Lapland, you’ll have the opportunity to meet the biggest animal superstars of the region—the huskies and the reindeer! This holiday package is a favorite among families for a good reason.
As an additional highlight to your trip, there’s an excellent opportunity to witness the Arctic’s most spectacular wonder—the Northern Lights! You may catch them from your Aurora accommodation or on our special Aurora tour.
This holiday package is available on 6.9.–10.11.2024.
DAY 1 – Arrival at Rovaniemi Lapland
Arrival at Apukka Resort in Rovaniemi Lapland. Our driver will welcome you at Rovaniemi Airport, and after a 10-minute drive, you will arrive at Apukka Resort in the middle of authentic Lappish nature. 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.
Delve into the world of Arctic wonder dogs by exploring the husky farm. Experience a profound connection to Lapland’s ancient way of life by walking with a reindeer. Embark on an Aurora hunt guided by our expert. Your included activities will be thoughtfully scheduled throughout your stay, and you can book more tours at our reception if you wish.
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: Walk with reindeer
Immerse yourself in the Arctic nature alongside local reindeer near Apukka Resort!
Embark on a 2-kilometer journey alongside a reindeer, guided by a reindeer herder who unveils the secrets behind their livelihood. Go beyond the holiday tales and learn that reality can truly be more captivating than fiction. Breathe in the purest air on Earth and indulge in a moment of relaxation with coffee by a crackling campfire.
After the walk, you have the opportunity to try your hand at using the traditional lasso called ‘suopunki,’ the same tool herders use to capture reindeer.
Tour 2: Husky Farm Visit
A guided tour of our modern kennel facilities and plenty of cuteness awaits you!
Huskies are one of the most beloved animals of Lapland, and you will know why when you meet the pack at Apukka Resort. Create lasting memories as you pet and pose for photos with these cute dogs. Learn about husky training, breeding, and racing, gaining insight into their interesting lives.
The dogs will also offer you a 500m cart ride to show how they prepare for winter if the weather is 10 °C or colder.
Tour 3: Northern Lights Hunting by Car
Are you ready to embark on the pursuit of the mesmerizing Auroras?
The Northern Lights appear where they please, prompting us to offer Aurora tours by car. Our guide will lead you on a quest to witness these mysterious lights wherever they may appear. Prior to hitting the road, we meticulously examine Aurora and weather forecasts to ensure the conditions are just right.
Traveling by car increases your chances of seeing the Northern Lights, so buckle up and seize this opportunity to deepen your connection to Lapland and its wonders.
