Homely, warm, joyful Christmas – Activities & Festive Dinners
Start your days with a buffet breakfast at our atmospheric Lappish restaurant Aitta.
Time for the magical, joyful activities – huskies, reindeer, and of course, Santa Claus is waiting for you! Your excursions will be distributed nicely along with your stay, and if you wish you can book more tours at our reception.
On Christmastime, Apukka Resort is truly a winter wonderland where 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.
We have a giant tube slide on the premises (free of charge) and a frozen lake just next to the Resort, inviting you to an afternoon walk on its thick ice cover. We got a big bonfire in the yard that we light up every night for you to relax by. Building a snowman, kick sledding on the ice, or just walking around the beautiful Resort and taking photos – the list of things to do in Apukka Resort is endless.
Tour 1: Apukka Husky Tour, duration 2 hours
Huskies are one of the most loved animals of the North, and you will understand why when you meet the pack at
Apukka Husky Farm. You can pet them, pose on photos with them and listen to stories about the lives of the huskies. They absolutely love pulling loads and running on the trail across the forests. The highlight of the day is the 7–10 km long safari, where you get to be the musher yourself, in other words, control the pack of huskies towing the sled.
Tour 2: Aurora hunt by Snow Train, duration 3 hours
Take a ride through the winter wonderland in a warm carriage of our famous Snowtrain! We head out in the wilderness, far from artificial lights, looking for the Northern Lights. After crossing the beautiful snowy landscape, we reach a traditional Lappish kota, a hut deep in the wilderness. The group gathers around the blazing bonfire to enjoy light snacks and hot drinks. Our aurora expert will help you with camera settings to capture the Northern Lights. This excursion is wholly focused on the Northern Lights, but you also get to experience the beauty of the pristine, snowy forest, darkness, and quietness. As the Northern Lights are a natural phenomenon, nobody can give a 100% guarantee to see them, but this trip presents an excellent chance!
Tour 3: Reindeer ride to Santa through the Magic Forest, duration 3 hours
As you step into the snow-covered forest, you’ll suddenly see antlers in between the trees. Any sign of a red nose yet? Here, deep in the woods, the reindeer are waiting for you, ready to lead the way to the Santa. So take a seat in a cozy sled and start the journey through the Magic Forest. The Elves along the way are there to help you to find Santa’s Secret Hut, a place filled with magic. With their help, you’ll find a Secret Pathway in the snow, leading you to an extraordinary place. Maybe Santa Claus has a small surprise waiting for you? During the program, warm drinks and cookies will be served. Funny Elves of Apukka will keep you busy with their Christmassy program while waiting for your turn to meet the Old Grand Man himself!
Festive dinners on 24th and 25th December
On Christmas Eve and on Christmas Day we set up amazing Festive dinner buffets in our Restaurant Aitta. Aitta’s 100 years old log walls, real Christmas tree, delicious food, and Christmassy program during the dinner make an unforgettable setting for your Christmas. For both dinners, a wine package is included in the menu. For children, we serve soft drinks.
26th Dec – Bye Bye Lapland!
