We came here to celebrate our first Father's day as a family. As locals we wanted to support a local business during these tough times and also get a sense of a vacation without having to travel anywhere. We absolutely loved Apukka Resort!! The Aurora Cabin was so beautiful and nicely decorated. We could just lie in the bed and watch the beautiful stars in the sky. They even had a travel bed for our four month old baby. We also loved the Aitta Restaurant. The atmosphere was so cozy and the food was delicious. Excellent pizzas and desserts! The staff was really friendly although I can imagine it wasn't easy for them since the resort is going to close down for this winter. Do yourself a favor and book a night or two in here. You won't regret it! Oh and make sure you include a sauna/hot tub package or massage into your stay as well ;)

Really warm and flexible service, peaceful atmosphere and cosy restaurant, good value for money during off-season. A short drive from Rovaniemi and airport and close to nice hikes, try for example Ounasvaara nature trail. Some minor improvement suggestions would be a little less costly opportunities for sauna-goers, faster replenishment of breakfast buffet items and maybe a bedside table and lamp for reading in the aurora cabins/igloos. The igloo glass roof was nice for star-gazing and the superior version had a small vestibule which is probably great in the wintertime to keep the living/sleeping space warmer. Overall a nice experience and good base for expliring the surroundings. Got there by night train and car rental, but they can help with transfers too.

We stayed at Apukka for our honeymoon, first in one of the apartments and then for two nights in an Aurora Cabin. The resort is in a good location: close to Santa Claus Village, the city and the airport, with reasonably regular bus services. Take a look at the timetable for the normal service buses as well as the shuttle bus (as they offer more options). There are also plenty of activities which operate from the resort, meaning no need to travel whether you want to go on a reindeer ride, snow shoeing or on a trip to try to find the Northern Lights. We took part in a couple of activities at the resort, and they were both run professional, knowledgeable and friendly guides. The accommodation was good - the apartment was spacious and well resourced, and the Aurora Cabin comfortable and perfect for Northern Lights spotting. If you're staying for a while I'd recommend booking the apartment for most of your time and the Aurora Cabin for the final few nights to get the best value for money. The reception staff were very helpful and went out of their way to help us on a number of occasions. The restaurant was good, both the quality and range of the food and the service. My only criticism would be that the buffet option was overpriced for what it was. Whilst the main course was often good, the starters and desserts were usually uninspiring and at €40 each we tried to avoid it. Whilst obviously there are no guarantees, we saw the Northern Lights four times during our nine night stay. The frozen lake was a particularly good place to stand but the Aurora Cabin also offered a great view. Overall we had a great honeymoon and would recommend Apukka to other travellers.

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
