Northern Lights Break At Apukka Resort

From: £1225.00

Holiday overview

Experience the very best of winter in Finnish Lapland with a stay at Apukka Resort on the outskirts of Rovaniemi. Ideally located just minutes from the Arctic Circle and Santa's Village, you'll have the chance to explore the snow-laden surrounds on optional activities that range from snowshoeing and reindeer sleigh rides to ice carving and even a sauna on skis. Your stay includes three nights in one of the resort’s glass-roofed Aurora Domes, ideal for private views of the Northern Lights, or in one of the all-new Lappish Kammi Suites. Plus, we’ve thrown in a nighttime snowmobile tour for a further chance to catch a glimpse of those celestial illuminations. 

Holiday itinerary

Day 1: Fly to Rovaniemi

Departing the UK, you’ll board a flight to Rovaniemi in the heart of Finnish Lapland. On arrival, an included transfer will whisk you to your accommodation, the wonderful Apukka Aurora Borealis Resort, tucked away in the wilderness on the edge of the Arctic Circle. You'll have a choice of the glass-roofed aurora domes – perfect for viewing the Northern Lights – and the all-new Lappish Kammi Suites. Authentic, ecological and filled with stories of the past, these rooms are the perfect blend of age-old tradition and modern innovation, Finnish style. Looking for more space? Look to the Lappish Kammi Family Suites for two bedrooms and a spacious living area. In the evening, head to the restaurant for the first of your included half-board dinners. 

Day 2: Optional activities & Northern Lights snowmobiling

Enjoy a free day to experience some of Apukka’s optional activities, with the likes of husky safaris and ice fishing topping the bill. Then, in the evening, we’ve arranged a Northern Lights snowmobile safari. It’s an exhilarating chance to speed out into the wilderness, driving to a location far from artificial light where your guide will set a bonfire and prepare hot drinks and snacks as you learn something of the science behind the aurora. Then, it’s time to resume the chase as you head out along frozen forest trails in the hope of seeing the Lights for yourself.

Day 3: Optional activities

We’ve left today completely free for optional excursions, so perhaps take the chance to try out snowshoeing, or visit the nearby reindeer farm for sled ride and to meet the local herd. Alternatively, why not try your hand at ice carving, or embrace the resort’s eclectic spirit by taking a sauna on skis? What’s more, Santa’s Village is only 10 minutes away for the ultimate festive treat.

Day 4: Depart for home

After a final breakfast, you’ll return to the resort for your airport transfer, flying home from Rovaniemi later that day.
