Apukka was a well-known resting place for travellers of the past and the old tavern was famous for the offerings of local produce, such as fish from the nearby lake and homemade products, berries and mushrooms from farms and nature alike.
Today, in the heart of Apukka you find the restaurant Aitta, and although a new building, Aitta is constructed from 100 year old logs. The high windows in the restaurant offer amazing views over the frozen lake and the huge stone fireplace with an oven used for baking bread and cooking stews bring warmth to this cosy eatery. Continuing with the tradition of hospitality, Nordic cuisine, with a modern twist, is served here for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Lunch and dinner are normally in buffet style.
All rooms, cabins and apartments are designed in stylish Scandinavian style with a special colourful Arctic flair in the soft furnishing.
