We had wonderful stay at Apukka Resort. The facilities are perfect, especially the services. The staffs were all accommodating, that they allowed us for a late check-out for free!

Nothing to complain! We had our holiday in Apukka a perfect one! Highly recommended!

Stayed at the Aurora Cabin - Glass Igloo with 2 adults and 2 kids, Igloo size not very big but good enough for us. You may need to push your own luggage to the cabin with the sledge provided, its easy that we thought on the snow ground, its fun.

Lying on the bed with a big glass panels are just beautiful. Bathroom with heating floor, however hot shower may only last for less than 20mins and then need to wait for about 2 hrs to reboil. Fast Wifi in Igloo and some candies welcoming us.

We did enjoy the 630pm free session with the guide around the fire place in restaurant, nice salmon cook with wood fire, knowledgeable guide (Nora) and friendly.

Dont forget to walk towards very beautiful scenery frozen lake next to the reception building.

We read some review that resort provide winter clothing for guest but I was told its only if you book their activities then you can get those winter clothing for free.

We rented a car (recommended), easy to move around everywhere.

The aurora wagon experience was great. The northern lights weren't out when we stayed there but we had a great experience anyway. The staff were very knowledgeable, the area was beautiful, the sauna was amazing. I would definitely recommend as it is a once in a lifetime kind of experience.

We came to Apukka wanting a cold, snowy and magic experience and Apukka was all that and more. Acknowledge we were lucky to have had so much snow.
The staff were great, very hospitable. Perhaps the highlights were the side of salmon the guides spontaneously cooked by the fire in the restaurant and the random deer walking around. It was perfect and the cabin was amazing. Exactly like the pics.
We went on the snow train tour at night, and while we didn't see any lights, the journey over the fresh show and the conversation with the local guides by the fire was equally as good.
I would recommend hiring a car, as it is about 15 mins from town. Not the easiest for two Aussies who've never driven in snow. I would love to come back.

Had a wondeful weekend at Apukka resort celebrating our son's birthday. What an amazing place Lapland is - did not disappoint in any aspect. The location of the resort is very well placed for the airport and proximity to Santa Claus Village - peaceful and calm with amazing scenery and landscape. All the staff very friendly and welcoming. The igloo cabins were constantly warm and cosy. My son is already planning to return one day to Lapland.
