Overview

With a convenient 10 minute transfer from Rovaniemi Airport, Apukka Resort has an enviable position being close to the city yet in the heart of the wilderness - the perfect spot for an Arctic adventure. Set on the forest edge and on the shores of a frozen lake it offers several accommodation options as well as a host of wonderful winter activities to choose from, including different experiences in search for the magical northern lights.

Apukka Resort is easily accessible from the UK with direct flights between London Gatwick and Rovaniemi, making it a great choice for a 3 or 4 night winter short break, or even up to a week’s stay in the arctic wilderness. With accommodation options ranging from apartments and holiday homes to Aurora Cabins and even the very special Ice Cabins and Aurora Wagons for a unique overnight experience, there is something suitable for everyone.

One of the highlights of Apukka Resort is the wide choice of activities available, and no adventure is complete without embarking on a winter activity or two, with the popular experiences  being; Husky Adventure, Sunrise Snowmobile Safari and an Aurora Hunt by Snowtrain.

There are many others which can be added to your holiday, including trips by Snowtrain to the Husky Kennels and Reindeer farm; a multi-activity fun day; Reindeer Safari; Snowmobile trips; Visiting Santa Claus Village; Ice Fishing; Snowshoe trek; Nordic skiing; Fatbiking and visiting Ranua Wildlife Park.
