What You'll Do

Delve into a 4 night escape to a hidden treasure of Winter Wonderland in Lapland. Create lasting memories whilst you enjoy a husky adventure, reindeer journey, snow train Aurora hunt, and if you're lucky, you'll spot one of the wonders of the world - the Northern Lights!

Meet your driver at the airport and your luxury Apukka Resort is only 10-15 minutes away! Situated in the middle of authentic Lappish nature, you will feel like you’re in Narnia.

An undoubtable highlight of your family holiday in Lapland will be the 2 hour Husky Adventure. You’ll have the opportunity to meet a stunning and friendly pack of Huskies – you can stroke them, pose for photos and listen to stories of the most loved animals of the North! Enjoy a 1 hour safari and see how much the huskies love pulling you through the white-scape of forest trails and hills. You’ll have the novel opportunity to be the “musher”, steering and controlling the huskies yourself!

During your Reindeer Journey, you’ll enjoy amazing views as you travel through the snowy forests on a reindeer sleigh and experience traditional arctic transport! You’ll be surrounded the stunning Lappish nature as the reindeer go at a peaceful pace through the white forests. Step off the sled with much more knowledge than before about the history of reindeer and herders in Finnish Lapland than you knew before!

The Adventure doesn’t stop there… you’ll also take a ride through the winter wonderland in a warm carriage of our famous Snow train! We’ll head out in the wilderness, far from artificial lights, looking for the Northern Lights. We’ll cross the beautiful snowy landscape to reach a traditional, Lappish “kota”; a hut deep in the wilderness. We gather around the blazing bonfire, to enjoy light snacks and hot drinks. Our guide will help you with camera settings to best capture the Northern Lights. This excursion is completely focused on the Northern Lights, but you also get to experience the beauty of the pure and snowy forest. As the Northern Lights are a natural phenomenon, nobody can give a 100% guarantee to see them, but on this trip you’ll have an excellent chance!

Throughout your stay you’ll have plenty of time to relax and enjoy your tranquil surroundings. This trip provides one of a kind accommodation with stunning panorama views of the sky from your every own bed, perfect for viewing the famous Northern Lights!

You’ll also have the option to add on an amazing Snowmobile Safari to Santa Claus Village, where you’ll meet Santa Claus himself! This activity includes a snowmobile ride, a delicious lunch, and time to spend wandering around the shops of Santa Claus Village. This activity must be selected as an extra at check-out.
