The Resort’s giant tube slide provides an exhilarating experience, while the frozen lake invites you to take a walk on its thick ice cover, and the nightly bonfires in the yard create a cozy atmosphere for relaxation and socializing.

Tour 1: Apukka Snow & Fun, duration 4 hours

Huskies, reindeer, snow fun, and mini snowmobiles for children! Why choose one single activity when you can have it all? Apukka Snow and Fun is an excellent way for families and everyone to taste the best experiences at the Arctic Circle! During the day, you’ll get to try many incredible things. You get to go on a short sleigh ride with huskies and reindeer. Try out your skills on snowshoes and cross-country skis and our specialty, ice sculpting. Slide with toboggans – who can make the longest slide? Kids will have fun on the mini snowmobiles! You’ll enjoy a tasty lunch in our authentic Restaurant Aitta, during the active day. It is time for the big snow fight to cap off the day!

Tour 2: Snowmobile Safari to Santa Claus Village, duration 6 hours

This excursion takes you via the snowy forest from Apukka Resort to Santa Claus Village. Adults will drive snowmobiles, and children will travel in a warm, covered sled. On this safari, you can combine snowmobiling and the possibility of meeting Santa Claus. You will also enjoy shopping and sending postcards from Santa Claus Main Post Office with a unique Arctic Circle stamp. During the day, you will also have lunch in a cozy restaurant. And, of course, don’t forget to cross the Arctic Circle!

Tour 3: Aurora hunt by Snow Train, duration 3 hours

Hop on a magical winter adventure to hunt the Auroras with your family on our cozy, heated Snow Train! Our guide will lead you to a traditional Lappish hut under the arctic sky, away from artificial lights, where you’ll gather around a bonfire to enjoy snacks and hot drinks and hear tales about the mystical Aurora Borealis. While sightings of the Northern Lights are never guaranteed due to their natural occurrence, this trip offers an excellent opportunity to create cherished memories as a family on this thrilling journey through a winter wonderland in search of the enchanting Northern Lights.

Tour 4: Ice Fishing like a Finn, duration 2.5hrs

On this authentic Finnish experience, you’ll head out on an ice-fishing trip to the frozen lake with your family. Learn how to pack your own fishing gear from scratch and choose the perfect lure to attract the fish. Like the Finns, we’ll make our way to the frozen lake and drill a hole in the ice together. Lower your bait and lay down on the cozy reindeer skin, sipping on a hot drink by the fire we’ve built for you. Then, patiently wait for the perch and other freshwater fishes to hopefully bite. It’s a unique and memorable way to enjoy quality time as a family in Lapland.


Day 6 – Bye Bye Lapland!

After a delicious breakfast, it is time to say bye-bye to Lapland. Our driver will take you to the airport and wish you a pleasant journey home. Hope to see you again at Apukka Resort!
