During this period, you can embark on a Northern Lights tour, encounter Arctic animals in our safaris, hike through the wilderness, or explore the landscape from the saddle of an eFatbike.
Winter arrives early in Apukka Resort, as we kick off our snow-based activities from November 13th onwards. If nature doesn’t provide us with sufficient snow, we’ll create it using stored snow and snow cannons. Join us for fun-filled experiences like husky tours, reindeer sleigh rides, snowmobile safaris, and much more. These tours offer a special chance to enjoy snowy activities ahead of the usual season.
When the winter season is in full swing, you’ll find our selection of winter activities expanding. Enjoy longer husky rides, a greater variety of Northern Lights tours , snowshoeing … There are simply too many things to do to list here!
