We’re thrilled to offer our guests three nights in the Apukka Aurora Cabins which are furnished in a classic Scandinavian style and feature a glass roof for evening Aurora spotting.

You may well be able to see the Northern Lights from the frozen lake on site. However, to enhance your chances of a sighting, we have included some fun Aurora safaris. From a relaxing ride on the Snowtrain to an Aurora hunt by car, we offer even more options to get you on the hunt for the green dancing lights above. Our local guides will use their expert knowledge of the Northern Lights and the area to maximise your chances of seeing this astonishing natural wonder.

Throughout your stay here, you’ll also enjoy some true Arctic adventures during the day. Take the reins as you try your hand as a musher, being pulled by a team of eager sled-dogs across the brilliantly-white Arctic. You can also explore the winter white environment via a variety of innovative snow-based activities you could never try at home. Whether you want to unleash your adventurous side on a snowmobile or you want to explore the scenic landscape by snowshoe, we have the activity to suit you. Please note, most activities start just a short walk away from your accommodation. You will need to cross a road, but a guide will be with you at all times to help you cross. Vehicles do pass along this main road, however, it is not a busy route. 

The Apukka Resort is ideally situated so you can enjoy the wintery wilderness of Lapland whilst also basing yourself in prime Aurora territory, all with easy access to the city and airport. What’s more, as a centre for ice building you can choose to upgrade to spend a night in an Ice Cabin, which is a truly unique experience. With so many things to discover from the Apukka Resort, this is a captivating Finnish escape.

Group Size

We always try to provide an approximation of the group size you can expect to be with for the duration of each of our holidays. It may be that you are joined by others for parts of your holiday (such as transfers and particular activities) but the above number reflects those you can normally expect to be with from beginning to end. If group size is something which is particularly important to you, please speak to our Travel Experts and they can suggest the best holidays for you.

Tailor-made holiday group sizes will vary for all activities as will the group size for any additional activities you book.

Minimum numbers required for a holiday to operate

Some of our holidays require a minimum number of participants to operate (as listed in the ‘Group Size’ section). If your holiday departure has not yet reached the minimum number, you will be told at the time of booking. In the unlikely event that your chosen date is not guaranteed by nine weeks before your scheduled departure date, we will contact you to discuss the available options as per our booking conditions.

Minimum and maximum age

If a specific minimum age applies to this holiday, it can be found in the Key Facts box on the holiday Overview page.

Unless otherwise stated in the Key Facts box on the holiday Overview page, the minimum age for participation in an Aurora Zone holiday is typically 12 years old (there may be younger children in some destinations who have booked with other companies). If an adult-only environment is important to you, then please contact our Travel Experts and they will advise on the best dates and destinations for you.

Itinerary amendments

The order of activities listed in this agenda is provided for guidance only, your final and detailed itinerary will be provided either with your final travel documents (which are uploaded into your online account around a week prior to departure) or upon arrival.

Medical History and Advice

We want our holidays to be accessible as they can be and will do our best to accommodate any special requests and requirements where possible. We have a wide range of holidays and destinations and so our travel experts will help find the best holiday for you.

In order to give us the best possible chance to do this, we ask that if you or any member of your party has any medical condition or disability which may affect your holiday or has any special requirements, that you tell us at the time of enquiry or booking. You must also promptly advise us if any medical condition or disability which may affect your holiday develops after your booking has been confirmed. You may need to provide a doctor’s note and proof of insurance in some cases as the health and safety of our clients is absolutely paramount.

In providing this information you are allowing us to work with our expert local partners to ensure that your whole party can enjoy the holiday. By letting us know in advance we can discreetly work with you to adapt any part of the holiday which may potentially be challenging. Being able to prepare for this in advance makes an incredible difference to what we can offer and minimises any impact on your party and the rest of the group.

Unfortunately, if you choose not to share this information with us in advance then it may limit some or all of the itinerary you have booked, and we cannot be held accountable for any additional costs or missed activities resulting from this.


Insurance is not included in your holiday, but it is a pre-requisite to travelling with us. You will need to ensure that you have cover for all the activities that you will be participating in during your holiday.

It is extremely important that you take out a suitable travel insurance policy at the time of booking. Plans do sometimes change, and you will need this policy should you need to cancel your holiday.

If you are struggling to find a suitable policy then details of our preferred provider, who will cover you for all the activities we offer, can be found on our website by clicking here. Please note that this policy is available to EU residents under the age of 75 only.

Booking Activities Locally

Additional activities can be booked locally in almost all our destinations. However, as per our booking conditions, we cannot be held responsible for any injury or loss incurred through participation in activities which are booked at your destination outside of our holiday itinerary (see our ‘Terms and Conditions’ for further details).

When arranging any such activity please always ensure that safety is your primary concern.

In some of our destinations, you can borrow or hire equipment for use in your free time. You do so entirely at your own risk. You must ensure that you are properly prepared, have the necessary equipment and knowledge (maps, etc) and ensure that where applicable, you follow marked routes. We recommend discussing your plans with the local teams who will be able to advise on the most suitable options for you.

Always let the reception/guide know where you are planning to go and take a torch and mobile phone (with the hotel/guide’s phone number stored). It is also a good idea to leave your contact number and the time you expect to return to the hotel should the hotel need to contact you.

The UK Foreign Office Advice

Our clients’ safety is at the centre of everything we do, and our operations team continually assesses and monitors the destinations we feature. We carry out thorough risk assessments and work closely with all of our suppliers to continually follow best practice. For up to date travel advice the UK government offers its Travel Aware website as well as the advice detailed below.

The Foreign and Commonwealth Office Advice

We receive all updates from the Foreign and Commonwealth Office (FCO) with regards to travel advice and we always ensure that we follow this advice in our operations. The FCO issues travel advisories for countries based on a very wide range of factors. They may provide notification about things as simple as a football match and crowds, or they may go so far as to advise against all travel to a region. We ask all our clients to refer to the relevant Travel Advice by Country for the destinations they are visiting in order to make an informed decision on the safety of the destination based on the details provided. It also provides vital information regarding entry requirements, embassy information, local laws and customs as well as specific safety and health. Guests should take responsibility for keeping themselves up to date with this advice. Please also ensure that, if you are transiting through another country, you have read the advice and meet the entry requirements for that destination too.

The FCO travel advice is applicable to British Passport Holders. Most governments will issue their own travel advice for a region and, if you are not a UK resident then you can find some helpful links below:

Australian Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade 

New Zealand Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Trade

Canadian Consular Affairs Bureau

The U.S. Bureau of Consular Affairs

If the FCO deems that there is an unacceptable level of risk for UK citizens then, together with the government, they may issue an advisory against all travel to a region or country. If such an advisory is published, then we will act accordingly, and this may require the cancellation, curtailment or amendment of a holiday itinerary. These decisions are made on the basis of ensuring our clients’ safety and will affect all clients on the holiday, regardless of their nationality.

If one of our local experts suggests an amendment due to a situation which develops locally then we may also take the decision to amend an itinerary appropriately.

If we have to cancel your holiday prior to departure you will be offered the option of an alternative trip (where any price difference will either be refunded to or covered by you) or a full refund of the monies paid.

If we have to curtail a holiday, then you will be refunded for any costs for the elements we have been unable to deliver, where we have been able to secure a refund from our suppliers. If we must reroute a holiday, then any basis for refund is determined on a case by case basis and dependent on whether the central holiday experience was provided or not.

Brexit information for British Passport holders

Information for British Passport Holders

It is your responsibility to ensure that your passport and/or any required visas are up to date for your holiday.  Please take special note of rules relating to passport validity as these have changed since Brexit.  You can find more general advice from the UK government on their Passport rules for travel to Europe and then country specific advice on the Foreign Travel Advice page under the entry requirements section.

Please also check the UK Governments ‘Get Travel Smart’ campaign for up to date information on travel advice by country, information on Travel Insurance and information on how to renew your passport if required.

Flight schedule changes and connecting transportation

On your documentation, we will confirm your flight schedule. Sometimes the flight number, routing and timings might change prior to your departure. If the change is classed as a significant change then we will contact you to discuss this. Please see our booking conditions for details.

Flight schedule changes can impact on your pre and post-holiday travel arrangements if these have been booked separately to your holiday. We strongly recommend that you do not book transport (such as trains or transfers), car parking or non-connecting flights to the departure point for your holiday until you have received your final confirmed travel times when your final travel documents are issued. We are not responsible for the effect of any schedule change on your pre or post travel arrangements. We strongly recommend that you do not purchase non-flexible or non-refundable tickets to avoid cancellation and penalty charges.

Booking your own flights - cancellation disclaimer

If you have chosen to book your own flights, then you will need to wait until we confirm to you that the holiday departure has met the minimum numbers required to run (if applicable to your chosen holiday). Once the holiday is guaranteed to run, you will be informed and you can then make your arrangements.

If transfers are included in your holiday, please ensure that any potential flights will be met by our standard transfers (speak to one of our Travel Experts for advice) otherwise private transfer supplements may be applicable. Once your flights are booked, please send us a copy of your detailed flight itinerary.

Please be aware that most tickets are non-refundable in the case of cancellation. For this reason, we strongly advise you check the rules of the ticket and check the limitations of your cancellation insurance before booking. We cannot be held liable, in the unlikely eventuality that we should be forced to cancel or amend your trip, for losses incurred relating to any flight booking you have made.

  • On arrival at Rovaniemi, our transfer vehicle will be waiting to take you on the 15-minute drive to Apukka. It’s a short journey but one that gets you into Apukka’s wilderness and in Aurora hunting territory.

    You’ll check into your accommodation before enjoying a 3-course dinner buffet in the restaurant. You’ll also be given your warm winter clothes to use for the duration of your trip.

    Depending on your flight times, you may want to start searching for the Northern Lights as soon as you arrive. See our ‘Personalise’ tab for a range of Aurora hunting activities.

    Included Meals:  Dinner
  • After breakfast, you’ll get to test your skills as a musher as your new canine chums pull the sled along a 5-10km trail across the wintry landscape and through the snowy forests. The tour lasts approximately two hours with around one hour on the sled and plenty of time to pet and take photos with the dogs (2 people per sled).

    After dinner, you’ll head out into the night for a unique way to try and see the Northern Lights – in a Snowtrain carriage pulled along by our guide’s snowmobile. You’ll head into the dark, still and silent wilderness until you reach camp.

    The camp is a traditional Lappish “Kota” (teepee), essentially a wilderness hut with a blazing fire, ideal for preparing warm drinks. It also provides the opportunity for your Aurora expert to help you with your camera settings in preparation for what will hopefully be an amazing celestial light show. The Snowtrain tour lasts approximately three hours in total.

    Included Meals:  Breakfast, Dinner
  • Fill up on breakfast then it’s up to you how you want to spend the daylight hours before the Aurora hunting begins again. The ‘Personalise’ tab will help you choose an experience which will really make the most of your time here.

    As night falls, it’s time to head out for another evening in search of the Aurora. Tonight, you will travel by car, which gives you the opportunity to outrun any cloud cover and head further afield in search of the Northern Lights. Your knowledgeable guide will lead the way, using their expertise to pick the best route and location to maximise your chances of spotting the Aurora.

    Prior to heading out, you’ll enjoy a short presentation on the science and myths behind the Northern Lights. If you have your own camera, your guide will also explain the best camera settings for you to use, should the lights make an appearance. You will be out for approximately three hours in total tonight.

    Included Meals:  Breakfast, Dinner
  • After breakfast, it’s time for your Finnish wonderland escape to come to an end as we transfer you to the airport and you take your memories home. If you have an early flight time, we’ll box up breakfast to take with you.

    Included Meals:  Breakfast

To really get into the Finnish spirit, why not try rolling in the deep snow between your sauna sessions? It may sound bizarre, but it is actually a wellness technique used frequently in these parts.

Everyone was friendly and helpful

The staff were excellent and really friendly and we loved the accommodation. 01 March 2020 by Penelope Ladds

We loved all activities, but particularly the husky ride and the snowmobiles.

The wilderness guides were fantastic 16 February 2020 by Gavin & Megan Duffy

We picked this trip just in case we were not lucky enough to see the Aurora Borealis as it included many extra activities that would make our holiday great anyway.We went on a snow train, rode on a Reindeer slay, had a Husky ride, drove snowmobiles, cycled across a frozen lake on fat bikes, slid down ice slides on large inner tubes and slept overnight in a room built of ice.

A fantastic experience 02 February 2020 by John Carpenter & Natalie Owen

No comments except to say it was just plain & simply a fantastic experience that we would love to do again. It was very well run & very well organised from the moment I made the initial phone call to book it all.

Overall it was a great experience and every day got better and better. 19 January 2020 by Janna Pratt

Even if we hadn't seen the Lights we would have considered it a good holiday - the activities were really good and we had a fabulous few days.

The Huskies were lovely and friendly 12 January 2020 by Lucy Hummerstone & Jamie Herman

My favourite activity was the snow mobile ride, and my partners was the Huskie ride. They were both amazing! The Huskies were lovely and friendly, it was good that we got to stroke them and feed them a treat after the ride. The snowmobile was really fun as I'd never done anything like it before. We also enjoyed the reindeer safari, although we didn't see the Northern Lights we still really enjoyed

The staff are truly committed to doing everything to make sure our stay was enjoyable. 03 March 2019 by Ian & Kathleen Hackett

Oh, it was all the most enjoyable. Borrowing snow shoes and just walking on the frozen lake, the snow train at night through the forest searching the sky for the Aurora, the exhilarating huskie drive and I suppose the most memorable the night reindeer sleigh. The deep silence broken only by the plod of hooves, the complete darkness and deep cold adding to the magic. And Mia’s true

understanding of each of her animals giving us total confidence. Then her voice as she called out ‘Aurora’ and there it was. Use stunning. The next day the genuine delight of Hannah? as she asked if I’d seen it and her true pleasure for me. Such lovely caring staff. I HAVE told everyone! The staff are truly committed to doing everything to make sure our stay was enjoyable. They were living the magic with us and were as thrilled as we were with our Aurora sighting and our pleasure in the activities. We were delighted to find a bottle of fizz in our cabin as a birthday celebration. So kind.

Loved all of it. 03 February 2019 by Jane & David Hill

Exceeded all our expectations. Saw the lights although they weren’t very bright but that was icing on the cake. It was our first winter holiday and we loved every minute of it and will definitely do one again.
