With accommodation options ranging from hotel rooms to apartments, from 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, so we have included three popular experiences to give you a taste of the arctic: 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. And being in a location away from city lights there is a real focus on different experiences in search for the northern lights. Please refer to the excursion section for a full list.
