Apukka Aurora

Apukka is nothing short of a Smörgåsbord of options in a wilderness clearing beteen two lakes: glazed roof aurora cabins, log ice(sic) cabins, log wood cabins, mobile aurora wagons, apartments and rooms in the original farmhouse from which the place takes its name. The aurora cabins which we base ourarrangements on are 29sqm with private shower/WC

1st Day UK – Lapland

Fly Norwegian DIRECT to Finnish Lapland, private transfer to Apukka & the Hotel Aurora, check in to your room and take buffet supper in the hotel’s resturant. Afterwards kick of your hunt for the Northern Lights with a safari on Apukka's unique snow train out to a traditional Lappish “kota” deep in the forest wilderness. On arrival there's an open camp fire with sausages and hot chocolate on tap to keep the chill out while you wait hopefully|) for your first aurora sighting.

2nd Day Husky Mushing & Ice Sauna

After breakfast set off for our special combi adventure day with husky mushing, When you arrive at the kennels the musher will show you how to balance on a dog sled, use the brake, steer and generally handle your own dog team. Whilst all this is going down the cacophony of wooing, singing and howling will reach a near deafening pitch only to subside the moment your team pulls away; then all you’ll hear is the slicing of the runners cutting through the snow. For R & R at the end of the day chill out (literally & metaphorically) in an ice sauna in which the thick, glossy ice walls cover you with steam as you throw water against them from the sauna's hot stove.

3rd/4th Day Sunrise Snowmobiling & Northern Lights Spotting

After breakfast it's time for our Sunrise Snowmobile Safari. After a short safety briefing & driving lesson scoot off through the forest along soft snow trails, over frozen ice lakes and mogul littered tundra. Modern 4 stroke snowmobiles with their low centre of gravity whether Bombardier Ski-Doos, Lynx or Polaris, are easy and safe to drive, controlled for acceleration and braking from the handlebar and have a 'kill switch' to shut down the engine in emergencies. In the evening take supper and then our unique Aurora wagon will be snowmobiled out in to the forest for you to sleep under the stars, or at least under glass under the stars, and hopefully watch the Northern Lights dancing hand in hand with Cassiopeia. Sleep the sleep of children. NB: when on a 3 night/4 day* stay your snowmobile safari is included on the 3rd day (Sunday). On a 4 night/5 day stay you can choose an optional safari by snowmobile, reindeer or husky: we have two to four hour ones or all day ones . We also have guides to take you ice fishing, snow shoeing or cross country skiing and, whilst you can book on the spot, it’s best to confirm the one you want to do beforehand to ‘avoid disappointment’ as the ‘speak your weight ‘machine voices have it. And no we don’t speak with forked tongue – we have a Peter Jones ‘never knowingly undersold’ commitment on safari prices - you'll pay the same pre-booking as you would on the spot.
