Homely, warm, joyful Christmas – Winter activities & Festive Dinners

Start your days with a buffet breakfast at our atmospheric Restaurant Aitta.

Time for the magical, joyful activities – huskies, reindeer, and 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 in advance or 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 feel 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 have a big bonfire in the yard that we light up daily for you to relax. 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 for 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 day’s highlight is the 7–10 km long safari, where you can be the musher yourself, controlling 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 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 2 hours

As you step into the snow-covered forest, you suddenly see antlers between the trees. Any sign of a red nose yet? The reindeer are waiting for you, ready to lead the way to Santa Claus’ hidden hut. So sit 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 Hidden 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 private meeting with the Old Grand Man himself!
