IN THE SEARCH OF THE CHRISTMAS SPIRIT
4 nights pre-Christmas holiday package in
Apukka Resort – Rovaniemi Lapland
Where is your Christmas Spirit – is it hidden in the husky sled, or can you find it during the reindeer ride?
Indeed, you will find at least a hint of it when playing in the snow. Or maybe a tiny bit of Christmas Spirit will be seen while gazing up the sky and catching the amazing Northern lights?
If not from these – we can guarantee that it will be found when meeting Santa Claus in his hidden hut, deep in the forest where elves and reindeer live. During this holiday, both adults and children will explore the authentic Lappish Christmas and all that it has to offer!
DAY 1 – Arrival at Rovaniemi Lapland
Arrival at snowy Apukka Resort. Our driver will welcome you at Rovaniemi Airport, and after 10 minutes drive, you will arrive at Apukka Resort in the middle of authentic Lappish nature. Finally, it’s time to check in and settle down to your spectacular accommodation.
DAYS 2-4 Active days in Apukka Resort
Start your days with a buffet breakfast at our atmospheric Lappish restaurant Aitta.
Time for the magical activities – huskies, reindeer, and of course, Santa Claus is waiting for you! Your excursions will be distributed nicely along with your stay, and you can book more tours at our reception.
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 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 for everyone to have a taste of 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 both 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 definitely have fun on the mini snowmobiles! During the active day, you’ll enjoy a tasty lunch in our authentic restaurant Aitta. To cap off the day, it is time for the big snow fight!
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 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 3: Reindeer ride to Santa through the Magic Forest, duration 2 hours
As you step into the snow-covered forest, you’ll suddenly see antlers in between the trees. Any sign of a red nose yet? Here, deep in the woods, the reindeer are waiting for you, ready to lead the way to Santa Claus’ secret hut. So take a seat in a cozy sled and start the journey through the Magic Forest. The Elves along the way are there to help you to find Santa’s hut, a place filled with Christmas spirit. With their help, you’ll find a Secret Pathway in the snow, leading you to an extraordinary place. Maybe Santa Claus has a small surprise waiting for you? During the program, warm drinks and cookies will be served. Funny Elves of Apukka will keep you busy with their Christmassy program while waiting for your turn to meet the Old Grand Man himself!
Day 5 – Bye Bye Lapland!
