Day 1 – Arrival at Rovaniemi Lapland

Arrival at snowy Apukka Resort Rovaniemi. 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. Finally, it’s time to check in and settle down in your spectacular accommodation.

Days 2-3 – Festive days in Apukka Resort

The best way to start the day is with a buffet breakfast at our atmospheric Lappish Restaurant Aitta.

Enjoy the magical activities – huskies and, hopefully, Northern lights await you! Your adventures will be distributed along with your stay, and if you wish, you can book more tours in advance or on the spot at our reception.

Apukka Resort turns into a beautiful winter wonderland during the holiday season, where you’ll never get bored. From tasty food experiences in our beautiful Restaurant Aitta to the unforgettable time spend on our adventures, we guarantee you won’t have a dull moment during your stay with us.

Our Resort is located next to a lake with thick ice cover, inviting you to take a walk. The huge tube slide in front of Restaurant Aitta, along with the big bonfires in the yard that we light up daily, will surely make you enjoy outdoors at the Resort. Do you want to build a snowman, go kick sledding on the ice, or have a peaceful walk around the Resort area and take 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 highlight of the day is the 7–10 km long safari, where you get to 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!

Festive dinner on 31st December

We set up a Festive dinner buffet on New Year’s Eve in our Restaurant Aitta. Aitta’s 100 years old log walls and delicious food makes an unforgettable setting for your search for New Year magic.
