IT’S ALL ABOUT AURORA
3 nights Northern Lights holiday package in
Apukka Resort – Rovaniemi Lapland
What’s on everyone’s bucket list? Of course, one of the world’s most magical sights – the Northern lights!
This natural phenomenon is extraordinary, and here at Apukka Resort, we make hunting for the Northern lights fun for everybody! 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.
DAY 1 – Arrival at Rovaniemi Lapland
Arrival at snowy Apukka Resort in Rovaniemi Lapland. 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. Then, it’s time to check in and settle down in your spectacular accommodation. Your activities will be distributed nicely along with your stay, and you can also book more activities from our reception.
DAYS 2 and 3 Active days in Apukka Resort
A daily buffet breakfast at our atmospheric Lappish restaurant Aitta is included.
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 nicely along with your stay, and you can book more different tours at our reception if you wish.
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.
Aurora Alert Service
You’ll have the Northern Lights Alert app login key, which is valid for three days. The Northern Lights Alert app sends you a real-time alert when the Northern Lights are visible in the sky! 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 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!
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 the search for 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 to do 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 a bit of luck, you get to share the special moment with your new furry friends!
Day 4 – 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 back home. Hope to see you again at Apukka Resort!
