Apukka resort web site is excellent ,very transperant and everything booked online appeared exactly the same when i visited-rooms,surrounding ,restaurant etc.

Resort location is best ,away from city and 5 mins walk away from room i saw northen lights .

There is so much to do for entertainment-snow train ,snow mobile, snow shoeing skiing,husky ride,rein deer ride,sauna,ice fishing, frozen lake walks, northen light hunting .

Food was delicious including breakfast,lunch ,dinner.

Frozen lake in back side of resort gives best views of sun rise,sun set and northen lights.

Transportation to airport and city or other attractions is very convinient and receptionlist are very helpful with map,bus timetable ,apps etc.

Lastly, staff,reception,cook and tour guides are very welcoming,professional,expert in their area.gave me the best expeirence in life close to nature to learn about finland .

Thank you Elina,Laura -you all are sweetheart and definitely making everyone's trip the most memorable trip for lifetime.

I will definitely recommend to all my friends to stay with Apukka when they plan a trip to Rovaniemi.

We've booked the Aurora Husky Tour and it was amazing. We had been very lucky to see the Northern Lights, but besides this, it was a very fun adventure. We even drove the sleds by ourself! The guide was very kind and took good care of us. It was an amazing night and we'd ever do it again! Highly recommended!

We really have a great time there. The place is lovely, the aurora cabins are very comfortable and with an amazing view to the sky (it is great to see the aurora, but inside a cozy cabin is even more special) and you have lots of activities to do there from snowmobiles, husky safaris, the ice train, sauna,... or you can also just pick up a pair of skis, a bike or snow shoes (available for free) to enjoy the surrounding areas and the lake. All the staff was also very nice. The buffet is also quite nice. The only “problem” was that we had to leave, as we were enjoying it so much! Highly recommended!

Our stay could not have been better! We saw the amazing aurora twice (!!) during our 6-night stay, twice on grounds of resort and once on their snow train excursion. Our family of four stayed in the two-bedroom holiday cabin, which is very spacious, private and well equipped. The lodge, lake, sledding hill, and tepee are a short walk from all the accomodations. If you have small kids, its fun to use the luggage sleighs to transport the kids from your room to the lodge for meals. The lodge is beautifully decorated - we loved sitting in the rocking chairs by the fire in the evenings and enoyed the variety of the buffet meals. The excursions were also excellent and well-priced (we tried the huskies, reindeer, Apukka fun day and snow train). The excursion guides were great -- all had friendly and welcoming personalities and were very willing to answer questions or chat. We also borrowed snow shoes to trek around the beautiful lake and our kids loved the resort's sleds and skidoo. I also highly recommend paying the small fee to access Apukka's aurora app -- we found it very accurate and it helped us maximize our aurora sightings without getting too cold. My only suggestion for improvement is that Apukka add a few more cooking tools in the cabins -- especially pot holders, dish towels, a larger pot, and a colander. I highly recommend staying in this amazing place!!!
