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 in 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 to witness nature’s beauty at its best. Experience Arctic nature completely differently 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 brightens your day! A traditional Finnish sauna waiting for you on your doorstep? As you book this sauna, you’ll soon witness how a peculiar, cute little sauna slides its way to the front of your doorstep. Then, as you hear a knock on your door, you’ll know the sauna is ready for you. 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 learn about the old way of living and the traditional way of using natural ingredients. 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 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!
