A stunning property with very modern accommodations. We had one of the Kosmio suites that was beautiful. Heated really well with great amenities such as hot water for showers which was perfect considering how cold the outside temperature was.

A winter wonderland
The most amazing place. It was like a dream come true. We visited Santa Claus village and had looked at staying there but we are so glad we chose Apukka, it was peaceful and tranquil and everything you imagine a winter wonderland to be. The paths were lit with candle light and the tipis with wood fires where perfect for warming up in during a break from the snow if you don’t fancy going back to your toasty igloo. I honestly can’t recommend enough, the staff were friendly and more than happy to help with any questions/arrange things. The buffet breakfast had a great choice, and if like us you have a fussy eater there is still plenty for them to have. We sat by the fire most nights after eating with a cocktail or glass of something. There was plenty of room in the igloo and the facilities were great. They are heated and insulated well and never once felt cold. I had read some reviews about the hot water but there was plenty for the three of us to shower without rushing. Sadly we didn’t see the northern lights (but at least we have an excuse to return now) but the glass ceiling/window is perfect for relaxing underneath looking at the night sky. We can’t wait to return and can’t recommend staying at Apukka enough!
