My apology for my English since I am not a native English speaker.
I would like to give a big thank to one of the staff in the resort - Suvi, who helped us a lot during our stay.
We tried to book a train ticket on our mobile device however it only allows desktop version, we approached Suvi who was on duty at the front desk on the night. She helped us with their desktop and we couldn't read Finnish and she helped us through the progress of ticket purchase.

She was friendly and patience, and we had a nice chat with her.
She also introduce us the traditional Christmas drink Glogi.
She really helped a lot and that made us a unforgettable stay in the resort.

The Resort itself, the glass cabinet we stayed is new, but to be honest the site is still under construction at that moment, we could see the building materials are placed around the resort area. We could see a Sauna hut with hot tube right in front of the sauna room are still under construction. But all these did affect too much as we didn't use the Sauna service.

The food and beverage were good. Not many choices but the quality was good.

Something could be improved would be the wifi connection, there is no wifi in room ( or i couldn't search them ).

There is no TV in the room but doesn't really matter as you would be looking at the sky rather than the TV.

unfortuantely the weather wasn't good during our stay, but if the weather was good, and clear, it would be perfect for northern light watching.

There is a lake right in front of the resort, and possible to have a light-pollution free environment for northern light watching.

The resort is about far away from the Rovaniemi town center. about 15mins drive.
about 8mins drive to Santa Claus Village. and 10mins drive to airport.

You may need to buy some snack before going back to the room as there is no shops around.

Generally, it was a very nice stay in the resort, me and my wife enjoyed a lot. And surely would recommend to our friends.

again, thank Apukka Resort, and thank you Suvi.

Kiitos!! Was a wonderful winter holiday in your apukka cabin. Brand new location. Staff is helpful and very friendly. It is a perfect location for relaxing holidays in nature, close to Santa Claus. Not so crowded like other places. Breakfast and dinner buffet is great with lots of jummy Finnish products.Will definitely come back!!!
