During the winter season (December – April), 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 Adventure, duration 2 hours
Meet & mush with our howling, furry friends – the huskies of Apukka – on this daytime adventure, including an hour-long safari! Huskies are one of the most loved animals of the North, and you will understand why when you meet the pack at Apukka. You can pet them, pose on photos with them and listen to stories about the lives of the huskies. They love pulling loads and running on the trail across the forests. The highlight of the day is the 5–10 km long safari, where you get to be the musher yourself; in other words, control the pack of huskies towing the sled.
Tour 2: Snowmobile Safari thru Wilderness, duration 2.5 hours
Ready to drive to the winter fairytale? The snowmobiles can take you to some unusual places – making it possible for you to witness nature’s beauty at its best. Experience the arctic nature in a completely different way as you hop on a snowmobile and drive off to the forest. Enjoy the beautiful sceneries along the way as you’ll go through pine tree forests and frozen marshlands until you stop for a moment to enjoy a hot drink in complete silence. Have you ever been in a place this quiet before?
Tour 3: Sauna Carriage by your Suite’s doorstep, duration 1.5 hours
Just as you thought the love the Finns have for saunas couldn’t get any more mesmerizing, this little sauna on wheels appears to brighten your day! A traditional Finnish sauna waiting for you on your doorstep? As you book this sauna, you’re soon about to witness how a peculiar, cute little sauna slides its way to the front of your doorstep. Then, as you’ll hear a knock on your door, you’ll know the sauna is ready for you – grab the bouquet of birch branches, a traditional “saunavihta”, and step into the gentle warmth of this unique wood-heated sauna.
Tour 4: 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 5: Snowshoe walk to the Arctic Nature, duration 2 hours
Do you want to feel, see, and breathe the unspoiled nature and its fresh air? This trip is for you! Snowshoes allow you to enter the stunning silence and beauty of the snow-covered surroundings. Your guide will tell you stories and facts about flora and fauna of Arctic nature. You will also hear about the old way of living and learn about the traditional way of using ingredients found in nature. The slow pace allows you to notice little details and take great photos. During the trip, your guide will serve hot drinks.
Day 8 – Bye Bye Lapland!
After a delicious breakfast, it is time to say bye-bye for Lapland. Our driver will take you to the airport and wish you a pleasant journey back home. Hope to see you again in Apukka Resort!
