Meet our beautiful huskies, play in the snow in the daytime, and hunt for Aurora Borealis each night. For this three-night holiday, we have included the best Northern Lights hunting tours and Aurora accommodation in a glass igloo or a glass roof cabin for the best Aurora viewing directly from your bed.
This holiday package is available on 1st Dec 2023 – 7th Apr 2024 & 1st Dec 2024 – 6th Dec 2025.
DAY 1 – Arrival at Rovaniemi Lapland
Arrival at the winter wonderland of Apukka Resort in Rovaniemi Lapland. Our driver is waiting for you at Rovaniemi Airport, and after a short drive, you will see Apukka Resort in the horizon! When it’s time to check in you will be greeted at the reception and sent to settle down in your amazing accommodation.
DAYS 2 and 3 Active days in Apukka Resort
Start your days with a delicious buffet breakfast at our atmospheric restaurant Aitta.
Explore Lapland and hunt the Northern Lights. Meet our Siberian huskies and go to search Aurora Borealis with them. Another night you can relax in the sled of our special Snowtrain and wait for the lady Aurora to appear in the sky. You can catch the Northern lights straight from your bed in your Aurora accommodation. Your included activities will be distributed along with your stay, and you can book more tours at our reception if you wish.
During the winter season (December – April), Apukka Resort is a 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 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. 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.
Northern Lights Alert Service
You’ll have the Northern Lights Alert app login key, valid for your stay. The Northern Lights Alert app sends you a real-time alert when the Northern Lights are visible in the sky above Apukka Resort! The app works with Android, iPhone, or SMS. We’ll hand you your login key when you arrive and check in at our reception.
Trip 1: Aurora hunt by Snow Train, duration 3 hours
Take a ride to the winter wonderland in the warm carriage of our famous Snowtrain! On this trip, you’ll be heading away from artificial lights to search for the Northern Lights. After the ride, you’ll gather around a bonfire in a traditional Lappish kota, a hut deep in the wilderness. Enjoy light snacks and hot drinks while listening to stories about the Aurora Borealis. This excursion is wholly focused on the Northern Lights, but you also 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!
Trip 2: Aurora Husky Tour in Apukka, duration 3 hours
Combine two of the most popular experiences into one fantastic adventure. Our energetic & eager huskies will take you on a ride in search of the Northern Lights. Huskies & Northern Lights – could there be a better combination? As the guides mush the husky teams through the wilderness, all that’s left for you is to take a cozy seat in the dog sled and enjoy the ride before you return to a traditional Lappish hut to grill some sausages and sip on warm juice by an open fire. The chances to see the Northern Lights get better and better as midnight approaches, and with some luck, you get to share the special moment with your new furry friends!
Day 4 – Farewell Apukka Resort!
In the morning, after breakfast, it is time to say farewell to Lapland and Apukka Resort. Our driver is ready to take you to the airport and wish you a pleasant journey home. Hope to see you again at our Resort in Rovaniemi!
