Experience the Magic

Experience the magic of winter on the Arctic Circle with suppliers who care about sustainable values.  There is a purity about Lapland – pristine white drifts of snow, fresh clean air, the dazzle of the Northern Lights on a cold, clear night – and we’d like to keep it that way.  Staying in the heart of the nature, in the comfort of your personal unique Aurora cabin, our accommodation base has a strong focus on combining quality with sustainability.  Our programme includes a range of activities that are both fun and at the same time will showcase a sustainable way of travelling. Discover the accommodation’s special approach to sustainability in a remote location through a range of seasons, experience the silence of e-snowmobiles, the natural noise of yelping huskies, visit the home of locals, discover the traditions of Finnish sauna, and enjoy local food and drink sourced from fresh natural ingredients.

Sustainable Timing

Staying in the region in late March, this is the perfect “sustainable” time to visit, at the end of the season, and also when the winter daylight hours are at their longest.

Exclusive Access

Those joining our tour get exclusive access to our tour Google My Map for additional information on the tours activities and venues, plus what to see and do in the free time – no-waste access from your phone.

Directly on the Arctic Circle

Located directly on the Arctic Circle you will be based 5 nights at the Apukka Resort, beside a lake on the edge of unspoilt wilderness.  Your superior Aurora Cabin, an individual unit, with lake views, has a bed placed under a glass roof to the sky, your window on the northern skies and – hopefully – a sighting of the Aurora Borealis.  A private bathroom, sofa, electric fireplace, mini fridge, hair dryer, kettle with tea/coffee-making facilities, and complimentary WiFi makes for a comfortable stay.  Huskies and reindeers live on-site, and there is a restaurant serving Nordic cuisine with a modern twist, using locally-sourced ingredients.
