Your Destination

Finland offers a huge variety of activities for guests no matter the season. Instead of the traditional winter excursions of snowmobile rides and reindeer safaris, in the warmer months, this arctic destination offers spectacular lakes, cosy bonfires and indulgent saunas. Rovaniemi is the capital of Lapland in northern Finland, and is known as the "official hometown of Santa Claus". Home to Santa Claus Village, a year-round Christmas themed attraction, this is heaven on earth for festive fanatics. Besides the Christmas festivities, Rovaniemi is also a great springboard from which to explore the Ranua Wildlife Park and the Arkitikum Science Museum.

Your Board Basis

This offer is based on a Half Board stay (Breakfast and evening meal served in the main buffet restaurant - excludes drinks).

The 100-year-old timber log walls of the hotel's stylish new restaurant Aitta tell dozens of historical stories. The hotel wishes to cherish the authentic tradition of old Apukka and that’s how the concept of their Aitta Restaurant was born.

The restaurant serves up delicious Nordic cuisine with modern twist and uses locally-sourced and tasty ingredients. Breakfast is continental, while the lunch and dinner is served in a buffet style. In the heart of the restaurant sits a huge stone fireplace with an oven, where indulgent buns and stews are created daily. High windows give amazing views out to the lake throughout the seasons, allowing for a truly special dining experience.

Please note: some dining outlets/menu items and premium, branded and international drinks may not be included and may incur a surcharge payable locally. Meals, snacks and drinks may be available at selected times only.

Your Time

Just for you
Just for you:
  • Thermal clothing included (if needed)
  • Traditional sauna experience included
After a long day of exploring, there is no better feeling than stepping into a hot sauna for an indulgent bit of pampering. In addition to the sauna, the hotel boasts a range of seasonal excursions which can be booked on site, including river rafting and reindeer farm visits!

Optional Stopover in Helsinki

You may choose to extend your trip by adding a 1-night stopover at the Original Sokos Hotel Albert 4*. Here, guests will be accommodated in a Standard Room on a Bed and Breakfast Board Basis.

Please Note:
 Choosing this stopover means an additional 2-night stay will be added on top of your break in Rovaniemi. While the first night will be spent at the Original Sokos Hotel Albert 4*, the second night will be spent onboard a night train from Helsinki to Rovaniemi. This train will take approx. 12 hours and you will have a Private Compartment to sleep in while on a Room Only board basis. Tickets for this train will be sent in advance with the travel documents for this offer. The train will leave Helsinki either around 6 pm or 9 pm (these times are subject to change).

Children will share the compartment with their parents. They will also have to share one of the parents’ berths which are about 1 metre wide.

Finland's capital is an eclectic mix of East and West, set on a peninsula in the Gulf of Finland. A neo-classical gem with an art nouveau quarter, laced with Alvar Aalto's spectacular modern architecture. Discover smart pavement cafés on Esplanade, gourmet restaurants at a fraction of London prices, and concerts and ballet at Finlandia Hall.

Visit the squares and cathedrals that make up the older aspects of this city, while making sure not to miss out on the legendary contemporary design scene - the newest addition being the Oodi Central Library, with rooftop views of the city and inspiring architecture! The city's gourmet side is also flourishing, with new gastro eateries offering locally sourced tasting menus popping up at dizzying speed. To discover all of this, why not purchase the Helsinki Card, which gives access to many museums, attractions, as well as an included bus tour? It is also possible to combine your visit to Helsinki with a day trip to Tallinn, in Estonia - just a short boat trip over the Gulf of Finland!

The Original Sokos Hotel Albert 4* is situated in the centre of this thriving city, just a 15 minute walk from the famous Market Square, and surrounded by countless charming shops and restaurants. Make sure to visit Suomenlinna, an 18th century sea fortress, during your stay, and also sample some local Finnish delicacies, including herring, crayfish, and pea soup.

Original Sokos Hotel Albert 4*

The Original Sokos Hotel Albert 4* is a welcoming city-centre hotel in the lively Punavuori district of Helsinki, a district famous for its community feel, which the hotel is certainly a part of! Here, you'll find warm interiors, a stylish Italian restaurant, and rooms with everything you need for your city break. The hotel is home to an indulgent sauna, so you can relax and pamper yourself after a day wandering this dynamic city!

Please note: Some facilities may incur an additional fee, payable locally.

Your Room

Standard Rooms contain everything you need for a comfortable city break, with a 160 cm-wide bed and colourful interiors as well as added amenities like a mini fridge, hairdryer, and air conditioning.

Your Included Excursions

Aurora Boat Trip (October 1st - November 31st)

Your Included Excursions
Pure arctic waters, the sound of mild waves hitting the side of the boat and the blue sky of Lapland – the recipe for a perfect summer day or night. Jump on a boat with us and prepare for an adventure. As we travel by boat across the lake Olkkajärvi, we’ll make a stop halfway to check the fish trap – maybe we have a fresh snack waiting for us there? The journey on the lake continues to a remote location where we’ll get to enjoy a delicious lunch cooked by an open fire. Add the interesting stories told by the guide and the magic of the 24/7 daylight and you have a day to remember. As the nights get darker again, with a bit of luck you'll see the Northern Lights.

Wilderness Night Walk (when the Aurora Boat Trip is unavailable due to the lake freezing)

Your Included Excursions
Take a minibus to a location near your resort. Your guide will take you on a relaxed walk in the forest, not only to admire the night sky and to search for the Auroras, but also to enjoy the Lappish wilderness during the night time. During your easy walk, your guides will teach you some essential skills to survive in the arctic nature. You will make a campfire together and prepare a light night snack. This is a true arctic nature experience!

Your Optional Excursions

Reindeer Camp Visit (2 hours)

Your Optional Excursions
Did you know that there are more reindeer than people in Lapland? This incredible animal has played a major role in the life of the Sami people for centuries and has adjusted to the cold temperatures of the North in an unique way. Learn this and a lot more by visiting the reindeer camp in Apukka! In the nearby surroundings of Apukka you will find a reindeer camp where furry friends are waiting for you. During this excursion you will have a chance to meet the reindeer and feed them with their greatest delicasy, lichen. Listen to the stories of the guide to learn more about the life of the reindeer and the reindeer herders. Try out your skills with ”suopunki”, a reindeer lasso, before finishing off the interesting tour with a cup of freshly brewed coffee by an open fire.

Includes: Transfers, hot drink & light snack, guiding

Husky Yard Visit (2 hours)

Your Optional Excursions
Meet howling, furry friends and prepare to fall in love with them. Our huskies are a beloved part of our team and always ready to give out hugs and wet kisses to anyone visiting their home, the dog yard. Huskies are one of the most loved animals of the North, and you will understand why when you meet the pack at Apukka. You can pet them, pose on photos with them, take them for a walk and listen to stories about the lives of the huskies. If the temperatures allow, you’ll get to join the dogs for their daily training on a troll cart! They absolutely love pulling sledges and running on the trail across the forests on wintertime, but you are about to learn that they love attention and cuddling with people almost as much. Are you ready to receive your hug from one of our huskies?
Includes: Transfers, hot drink & light snack, guiding. Operated: Mon, Wed, Fri & Sun.
