Journey€ross the Arctic Circle and give yourself an exceptional chance of seeing an amazing Northern Lights display. Easily€cessible from the airport, you won’t have to travel far to reach Apukka’s beautiful winter environment complete with frozen lakes and snowy forests.
There’s a good choice of€commodation here. You can choose from relaxing Apukka Apartments or welcoming Apukka Holidays Homes but to make your Arctic stay even more memorable it’s well worth including a night in the on-site Ice Village or one of 10 fabulous north-facing Aurora Cabins.
It’s not unusual for guests to see the Northern Lights from the comfort of their€commodation but, the best views are to be found outside. We include key Aurora€tivities to take advantage of the excellent field of vision here at Apukka where unobstructed views of the night sky are the order of the day (night!). From the warmth of the cosy Snowtrain to a rather special reindeer night safari, on every outing into the Arctic night, our expert local guides will do everything they can to help you see nature’s incredible light display.
Our holidays offer you the full Lappish experience during the day too and with€tivities starting right on site, you’ll waste no time getting stuck in. The adventure seekers among you will love our dog sledding€tivity. You’ll find yourself taking the helm of a sled pulled by a team of eager canines and experience what it’s like to be a real “musher”.
You’ll also jump onto a snowmobile and explore the picture-perfect landscapes, expertly chosen by our local guides. In a location like this, we want to give you every opportunity to enjoy the scenery and get a real taste of the snowy winter expanses. Travelling by snowmobile is the very best way to see as much as possible within a short timeframe.
Snowshoes and skis are available for hire so you can get out and explore under your own steam. Alternatively, hop on board the Snowtrain and enjoy the brilliant-white landscapes in heated comfort.
The Apukka Resort is famed as being one of the top locations around Rovaniemi for seeing the Northern Lights. The landscape is largely composed of open lakes and snowy fields which means that views of the sky are rarely interrupted. Our Aurora hunting tours are specially designed and guided, by local experts to give you the best chance of ticking the Northern Lights off your bucket list. What’s more, using our own travel experience in partnership with excellent local guides, we’ve designed a holiday to ensure you fall in love with Finland’s incredible countryside by day and by night.
