Aurora Adventure at Apukka

Aurora Adventure at Apukka Overview

Close to the city of Rovaniemi, Finland but with nature right on your doorstep, the Apukka Resort offers a true Arctic adventure and the chance to tick off some amazing bucket list experiences. You’ll have every opportunity to search for the incredible Northern Lights in unforgettable ways. We also include a dog sled safari to complete your stay!

The Apukka resort is just a short ride from the airport but takes you into the enchanting Arctic Circle for a getaway like no other.

We’re thrilled to offer our guests three nights in the Apukka Apartments or Apukka Holiday Home. You may well be able to see the Northern Lights from the comfort of your accommodation. However, to enhance your chances of a sighting, we have included some fun Aurora safaris. From a relaxing ride on the Snowtrain to an authentic experience on a reindeer-pulled sleigh, we offer even more options to get you on the hunt for the green dancing lights above. Our local guides will use their expert knowledge of the Northern Lights and the area to maximise your chances of seeing this astonishing natural wonder.

Throughout your stay here, you’ll also enjoy some true Arctic adventures during the day. Take the reins as you try your hand as a musher, being pulled by a team of eager sled-dogs across the brilliantly-white Arctic. You can also explore the winter white environment via a variety of innovative snow-based activities you could never try at home. Whether you want to unleash your adventurous side on a snowmobile or you want to explore the scenic landscape by snowshoe or ski, we have the activity to suit you.

The Apukka Resort is ideally situated so you can enjoy the wintery wilderness of Lapland whilst also basing yourself in prime Aurora territory. What’s more, as a centre for ice building we give you the opportunity to make the most of your stay here with a complimentary night in an Ice Cabin. With so many things to discover from the Apukka Resort, this is a captivating Finnish escape.
