We went for a Komsio suite which is very expensive, but it is unique. There is plenty of storage with a large cupboard near the stairs and an alcove just inside the door. The living area is nice and cosy and warm. The bathroom was more spacious than expected with good starage and great shower, we had no problems with managing the limited hot water.
The sleeping area is cute with window heating to clear the snow if necessary. It is just like sleeping under the stars and is lovely on a clear night. We were lucky enough to see an aurora, but it was bitterly cold outside, so we turned off all the lights and enjoyed a great view, and got some great photos, from our warm bedroom.
We ate at the restaurant a few times, choosing from the a la carte menu and all the meals were very good. Breakfast was really yummy with plenty of choices.
The resort is a fair way out of town so we had a hire car which worked well for getting around.

Dear Emerald, We are so happy to hear you enjoyed our special Komsio suite. We are happy that you found the special features we wished it would offer to you. Our location is only 15 min away from Rovaniemi city facilities, but far enough to offer peace and quiet close to the nature itself. Hope you had time to try some of the activities we offer in the resort. The restaurant is developing along the way and we are happy to hear we are on the right way with it. Hope to see you again! Best regards, Kati Apukka Resort Team

Extraordinary arctic experiences: stay one night in an ice cabin with a proper sleeping bag (I was not cold through the night!) and with a "normal" room to prepare and to go to in case you need it at some point, relaxing combo ice/wood/electric sauna + jacuzzi, great lappish cuisine and nice safaris!

We stayed in the aurora cabins. I felt the cabins were designed very average as compared to the rent we payed. Also there were no services, e.g. room service or complementary hot beverages at the reception, etc. Breakfast options were not that great - there could have been more options with juices, pastries, etc.
We also participated in some activities which we did enjoy e.g. snow mobile and the husky ride. For Apukka snow and fun experience, most of the planned activities were free for residents anyways. The husky and rain deer rides were just to short, so we came off feeling not getting value for money and time. I would have rather booked a long husky ride.
We also did the sauna which was good. location of the sauna could be better. Currently it faces the high way. Also they could make the experience much better with some light music and health drinks, etc. People and service is polite but nothing extravagant.
So overall value for money was the main theme here. No luxury, just bare essentials.

Dear AmritaVk, Thank you for the feedback. We appreciate all feedback and take all under consideration in developing our services. We are sorry to hear you feel that way. About breakfast. There is a juice dispenser providing blueberry, cranberry and orange juice as well as fresh water. In addition to this there is berry juice and water in cans too. In the bread selection we have more local types of bread and pastry than international, as we want to serve local products to our guests. In the brochure text about The Snow and Fun day in Apukka there is said that husky and reindeer rides are short. This is also told by the guide when you go to the husky and reindeer rides. The longer husky and reindeer rides are recommended for adults instead of the Snow and Fun. The ice sculpting and mini snowmobile riding for children are not in free use of clients staying in Apukka Resort. Sometimes clients appreciate guidance for the free equipment and how to use them, that is why we are keeping it within this activity. About the sauna. When you are in the sauna and jacuzzi, there is a high fence covering your privacy. When using the ice sauna you only need to get out of the fence area. The ice sauna is only a short time out of the 90 min time you have the sauna department in your private use. In Finland we recommend to drink the pure tab water. The entrance to the sauna is facing the walking way to Villa Apukka and the arboretum, not the high way. We know that service standards are different among people from different cultures. We do our best to provide good service to all our guests. We hope to see you again! Kind regards, Kati Nivala Apukka Resort Team

I stayed here with my girlfriend for our anniversary. The suite was beautiful and amazing however it's double the price of the regular glass roof cabins but you don't get that much more bang for you buck. The 360° views are really cool and so is the loft style bed, however I don't feel the Komsio is worth the price tag. For the price you're charged it should come with some extra perks, after all it is a suite. It would be nice if a free sauna session was thrown in or half of your dinners or lunches. The shower is amazing and really cool but short hot water times. Not a big deal though you still get decent showers.

We also did the aurora husky tour. The tour was okay. The dogs were pretty slow and there was only 5 of them to our sled which I was surprised at. I thought we would have 6-8 but I'm sure they know if 5 is a good amount or not. They guides were really friendly and nice and we got to stop halfway for photos and to change drivers if you're in a couple or group. We didn't see the lights as it was snowing the whole time we were there which is a shame but can't be helped. They lend you warm clothes too.

The resort itself was really nice. Secluded but not terribly far away from town. The staff were super friendly and nice and always bent over backwards to make you happy (at least in my experience). They let you use the snow suits and other warm stuff for free if you want to and they have tubes you can borrow to go down a few slides they have on their tower.

The breakfast was pretty decent, however, I would like to say I wished there were more options re: pastries, juices, eggs etc. But still a decent spread and quite tasty.

The only thing I'll say is if you can afford it rent a car! The public transport is hard to navigate and sometimes can be costly!! Also this is a trip to do later in life when you're more financially stable and not for young 20 year olds. It's quite costly haha.

Overall it was a nice experience but I'm giving it 3 stars just because I didn't feel I got my value for money with the suite and I was disappointed in the dogs. Perhaps they could invent a shorter tour where you get to have more dogs on a sled and get to go faster. Just a thought. It was so beautiful up in Lapland and would recommend the area!

Dear Iachiea, Thank you for your feedback. We are happy to hear our service as good as we wish to make our guest to feel welcome as a dear friend. We appreciate your honest feedback. We hope we can use your experience when inventing our services further. There are separate water containers in Aurora Cabins and Komsio suites. It has been investigated that the amount of water should be good for 2 persons if the water is not running when it is not used during the shower. This solution has been made as the first step towards nature friendly resort. We are happy to hear you had a decent shower taken despite this so it shows it should be enough. The number of huskies in teams is decided by the husky owners and they do know their dogs. The dogs have been trained to take their place in the team pulling the sledge and they are eager to do it when they are chosen and harnessed in front of the sledge. The owner decides how many dogs is needed for each team so I think we have to trust them. I have been on two safaris this winter and on both times the weather was close to 0 degrees. It is too warm for the dogs, they run best in -30 degrees, which again is not that good for us human beings. In both times there were 5-6 dogs in each team and it all went well. By telling this I try to tell that the speed is not only due to the number of dogs in the team but also the weather conditions and how the snow is has a big affect on the sleigh ride. With the Komsio suites we value your ideas. We need to reconsider all amenities and services to add the value of the suite. We thank you for staying with us and hope to see you again in Lapland! Kind regards, Kati Nivala Apukka Resort Team

We stayed in a standard twin room. It was small and clean, but didn’t have a sofa. It did however have its own bathroom with a shower but no bath. I’m sorry but I didn’t see any of the family rooms.
