Had a very Game of Thrones experience on a Husky drawn Northern Lights hunt at Apukka. Our wonderful and authentic guide introduced us to his enthusiastic dogs and surprised us with the notion that we'd actually be driving the sleds! Came as a bit of a shock for which we were eventually grateful (once we were back safe!) Heading out into the forest with my family sat in the sled ahead of me, head torch leading the way, the four dog team somehow managed to pull the four of us along at a fair pace out into the snow covered fields, passing herd's of Reindeer, peering into the woods for White Walkers and the skies for the Aurora! A great 3 hours that we'd all thoroughly recommend to everyone.

A great location, just about 7 mins by taxi from Santa Clause village. Staff was really friendly and helpful. Rooms were outstandingly clean. Our cabin was comfortable for 3 people. Heating temperature was perfect. A must if you're in Lapland

Amazing hospitality from the staff of Apukka Resort. They are super friendly, very knowledgeable, incredibly helpful and they all have a strong drive in giving the best experience!

Special mention to Saara, our guide for the Ranua Zoo visit. She shared a lot on the history of Rovaniemi and she knows a lot about the Zoo! (even the otter’s name) She makes effort to share as much as she can, and now, she is even learning how to guide in Chinese! My family and I enjoy her guide a lot!

Not forgetting the awesome receptionist, Juha, from the first day we arrived, he has been there to assist us in everything possible. From booking a taxi, to queries on the activites, to sharing about finnish culture (& of course how to grill the perfect sausages) and the list continues. His hospitality makes us really want to be back to Apukka to enjoy this magical experience again. Big thumbs up to him and all the other staff in Apukka Resort.

Highly recommended place to be in!

This new resort is really lovely. Just built and operating efficiently for our family of 6. The Aurora cabins are cozy, and warm for everyday after playing in the snow. (Actually, we had to ask them to turn the in-floor heating down!)

The staff are super friendly, helpful and interested in making a great experience.

The location on the lake is beautiful. We really felt like we were in Lapland, though only 10 mins (or less) from all the activities we wanted to try (Santa’s Village & 15 to Arktikum).

The activities available on site were well-run by friendly locals.
