5+ nights holiday package in
Apukka Resort – Rovaniemi Lapland
Have you always dreamed of meeting the Arctic Animals of Lapland? If yes – this adventure week is perfect for you!
During these six days, you will get kissed by our friendly and furry Siberian huskies, experience a sleigh ride with Santa Claus’ reindeer, and get in touch with nature on horseback. And, of course, enjoy the fastest of our Arctic “Animals” – a Snowmobile!
DAY 1 – Arrival at Rovaniemi Lapland
Arrival at snowy Apukka Resort. Our driver will welcome you at Rovaniemi Airport. After a 10-minute 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 glass roof accommodation. Adventures with Arctic animals await!
DAYS 2-4 Active days with Arctic animals in Apukka Resort
Start your days with a buffet breakfast at our atmospheric Restaurant Aitta.
Explore Lapland and all its unique activities. Meet huskies, enjoy peaceful nature in a reindeer sleigh, dash through the snow on horseback and ride through the Lappish forest on a snowmobile. And don’t forget to search for Aurora Borealis every night. Your included activities will be distributed nicely along with your stay, and you can book more 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 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.
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 for 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: Snowy Nature on Horseback, duration 2 hours
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 the rider and the 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. The 10.00 departure is for guests with previous experience with horseback riding. For the 12.00 departure, no previous experience is needed.
Tour 3: Across the Arctic Night by Reindeer, duration 3 hours
A journey through the magical, snow-covered forest. Millions of stars light the arctic night sky. Magic is just waiting to happen. You’ll travel on a reindeer sleigh through the untouched wilderness as our ancestors once did. As you see the bonfire glow from a remote lavvu, you’ll know it’s time to stop for a hot drink over some fascinating stories from the reindeer herders. Then, if lucky, perhaps the Northern Lights will escort you through the magical plains of Lapland – what a better way to live life to the fullest!
Tour 4: 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?
Day 6 – 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!
