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 ride into the Wild, duration 6 hours
In winter, the arctic forests are covered in deep snow, inaccessible by foot. This journey will take you to the depths of the woods, to remote places beyond your imagination. As you travel, the untouched snow, the pine tree forests, and the animal tracks all around us will tell you the story of the winter of the North. On this adventure, you’ll cover a reasonable distance before you find your way to a beautiful location in the middle of the wilderness. Your guide will show you how to prep and cook your own lunch wraps and brew coffee by the open fire. The combination of good food, good company, open fire and the silence all around us is what life in Lapland is all about. Are you ready for a true adventure in the Lappish wilderness?
Tour 3: 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 the 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.
Tour 4: Snowy Nature on Horseback, duration 2 hours
Departures both for beginners & experienced riders.
Experience the magical winter sceneries from horseback – a way to travel unlike anything else. In the middle of a frost-covered landscape, you’ll find beautiful calmness in the morning as a brisk horse ride through the arctic landscape awaits. The snow sparkles under the horses’ hooves and the breath of both a rider and a horse is steaming across the fresh air when you enter the snow-covered ice of lake Olkka. So hold on and enjoy the slow-paced ride; these are the memories in creation that you’ll cherish for a long time to come.
Day 6 – 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!
