Apukka Resort Rovaniemi

Apukka Resort Rovaniemi – an Arctic wilderness resort hotel in the capital of Lapland, surrounded by lakes and magical Lappish nature, just 10 minutes from Santa Claus Village and Rovaniemi city!

A ‘bucket-list’ retreat quite unlike any other, Apukka Resort Rovaniemi is breathtakingly located in one of the most beautiful parts of the world in Rovaniemi – the official hometown of Santa Claus in Lapland, Finland.

Nowhere else does each season appear quite so beautiful, from nature bathing in autumn foliage in September-October to sparkling ice adventures and crackling bonfires under starry skies in winter. You might also see the elusive Northern Lights from September to early April.

There’s a wide variety of Aurora accommodations to suit single travellers, couples, families, and groups of friends.

The bespoke-designed Kammi Glass Igoo Suites offer a 360-degree sky view from your bed. The larger Apukka Lakeview Suites have glass walls to Lake Olkka and two bedrooms with a spacious lounge area.

The Aurora Cabins are classical glass igloos that, if lucky, will showcase magical Northern Lights dancing across the sky. With its heated panoramic glass roof, you can enjoy breathtaking nature scenes without built-up snow ruining the view!

If you’ve got an even larger group in Rovaniemi, Villa Apukka, a stunning house built in 1948, boasts three generous bedrooms, two bathrooms, and a sauna.

Last but by no means least are the ‘Frozen’-style Ice Cabins in winter, created from logs of pure ice! Even though the temperature is between 0 and -5 degrees, you’ll sleep on a super-thick thermal sleeping bag covered with luxurious reindeer hides, so you’ll feel perfectly toasty.

And remember a marvellous array of seasonal adventures, including husky, horse, and reindeer tours, Aurora hunting tours, nature tours by efatbikes, boat, foot, and snowshoes, as well as snowmobile safaris, and sauna experiences.

What else? Restaurant Aitta’s 100-year-old timber log walls invite you to enjoy Lappish cuisine around an enormous stone fireplace. Pizzeria Kota offers Italian-style pizza with a Lappis twist by the open fire. Lobby Bar Riihi serves drinks and snacks from early morning to late night.

In short, to stay at Apukka Resort Rovaniemi is to embark on a unique holiday that will linger long in your memory forever after.
