ANIMAL LOVERS’ GETAWAY
4 nights Autumn getaway to meet Arctic animals in
Apukka Resort – Rovaniemi Lapland
Have you always dreamed of meeting Arctic Animals of Lapland? If yes – this animal lovers’ adventure week is perfect for you!
During your five days in Lapland, you will meet the huskies and reindeer, go for a ride with our beautiful Finn horses and meet all the Arctic animals of Ranua Wildlife Park.
And as an extra bonus to your trip, you have a good chance to see the biggest wonder of Arctic nature – the Northern Lights! You can hunt them every night around the Resort or from your own Aurora accommodation.
DAY 1 – Arrival at Rovaniemi Lapland
Arrival at Apukka Resort in Rovaniemi Lapland. Our driver will welcome you at Rovaniemi Airport, and after 10 minutes 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 Lappish restaurant Aitta is included.
Explore Lapland and all its unique activities. Meet our furry Siberian huskies and fascinating reindeer, have a calm horse ride through the forests, and explore Ranua Wildlife Park for one day. Your included activities will be distributed nicely along with your stay, and you can book more different tours at our reception if you wish.
Apukka Resort is truly in the middle of Lappish nature. During the autumn season (September-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 that 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 get to meet the two most iconic animals of Lapland! First, the reindeer herders tell you about the reindeer’s year, while you can feed the reindeer 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 about their life in the arctic. After all, you can sit down 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 some time for shopping and for a visit to Santa Claus Main Post Office.
Tour 2: Finn Horse Carriage Ride under the Night Sky, 3hrs
What is a better way to experience the Autumntime Auroras than by a cozy horse carriage ride with your family or partner? Glide over fields and through forests while snuggled under a warm blanket listening to the silence of the night.
What you will experience is by far the most enjoyable and authentic way to hunt the Northern Lights. During the journey, you’ll hear stories and legends of the Northern Lights and hear more about Finn Horses – the original horse breed of Finland. These majestic animals are stubborn, tough, and friendly like Finnish people!
Tour 3: Trip to Ranua Wildlife Park, 5hrs
Meet the famous polar bear family and about 200 other arctic animals of 50 different species at Ranua Zoo, 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!

After a delicious breakfast, it is time to say bye-bye to Lapland. Our driver will take you to the airport and wish you a pleasant journey back home. Hope to see you again at Apukka Resort!
