Tour 1: Apukka Husky Tour, duration 2 hours
Huskies are one of the most beloved animals in the North, and you’ll quickly see why when you visit Apukka Husky Farm. You’ll have the chance to interact with them, take photos, and hear fascinating tales about their lives. These huskies are passionate about pulling loads and sprinting through the forest trails. The day’s highlight is the 7–10 km safari, where you can become the musher, directing the husky team as they pull the sled.
Tour 2: Aurora hunt by Snow Train, duration 3 hours
Embark on a Snowtrain journey through a winter wonderland, venturing far from city lights in search of the Northern Lights. After traversing snowy landscapes, we reach a traditional Lappish kota deep in the wilderness, where you’ll gather around a blazing bonfire for light snacks and hot drinks. Our Aurora expert will assist with camera settings for capturing the Northern Lights. This excursion focuses on the Aurora, allowing you to appreciate the serene, snowy forest and silence. While no one can promise a 100% sighting of the Northern Lights due to their natural occurrence, this trip offers an excellent opportunity.
Tour 3: Reindeer Ride to Santa through the Magic Forest, duration 2 hours
As you enter the snow-covered forest, antlers appear among the trees. Is that a hint of a red nose? Reindeer await, ready to guide you to Santa Claus’ hidden hut. Hop into a snug sled and start a journey through the Magic Forest. Helpful Elves accompany you on the quest to discover Santa’s Hut, a place brimming with magic. With their assistance, you’ll uncover a Secret Pathway in the snow leading to an extraordinary destination. Perhaps Santa Claus has a small surprise waiting for you? During the program, warm drinks and cookies will be served. Apukka’s playful Elves will entertain you with a festive program while you await your private meeting with the jolly Old Man himself!
Festive dinners on 24th and 25th December
Our Restaurant Aitta hosts delightful dinner buffets on Christmas Eve and Christmas Day. Within the 100-year-old log walls of Aitta, you’ll find a real Christmas tree, delectable cuisine, and a festive program that creates an unforgettable Christmas ambiance.
