A Fantastic Resort

– After extensive research we chose Aupukka for our family holiday.

We spent x5 nights in a Kammi Class igloo and booked lots of activities.

From the moment we arrived we were made to feel welcome and were looked after by the very friendly and helpful staff. The igloo was perfect for our family of 3, it was clean, modern and had everything we needed.

All the activities were ran by friendly, knowledgeable and professional staff and at no point did we feel rushed. Snowmobiling with Erwin was a particular highlight.

The breakfast was amazing with plenty of choice, both hot and cold.

We pre-booked and paid for half board for 4 nights of our stay, This was the only negative for me and I wouldn’t do this again. Its no cheaper booking and paying up front than if you just rock up that evening. The starter and dessert are buffet and you get to choice your main meal from 2 options. Although what we had was nice, if you didn’t like either of the 2 options you were stuck. We also tried to swap our pre-booked half board for the A La Carte menu on our last night and although initially being told we couldn’t, they did allow it but only gave us 40% of our pre-paid monies towards the cost. Dont get me wrong, all the food was really nice but by pre-booking we boxed ourselves into a corner and had no option to try the other restaurant onsite.

I would highly recommend Apukka and 100% stay here again but simply not book any dining options in advance.

Highly Recommended!

– We stayed at Apukka Resort for 3 nights in March, in the Aurora Cabin Queen. The rooms were very nicely decorated, and there was sufficient space for 3 adults + 1 infant. During our stay, we were warmly welcomed by the resort hosts, and they have a welcome pack with gifts, and a map introducing the resort area. We loved that there were many spaces to explore – reindeers, horse and a slope where we spent lots of time sledding and tubing.

During our stay, the resort hosts were all very welcoming! In particular, Benjamin was welcoming and helpful with our luggages, and giving us a tour around the resort and giving an orientation on how to use the features in the room as well! Thank you to the Apukka team for the great stay!
