A Christmas experience with unique accommodation in Rovaniemi, the Arctic city in the heart of Lapland and the official home of Santa Claus. Stay 3 nights in a glass roofed Aurora Cabin at the Apukka Resort in Rovaniemi and help Santa getting ready for the big festivities.

23 December 2019  Arrival in Rovaniemi
Arrival in Rovaniemi, and transfer to Apukka Resort. Here you will stay the next 3 nights in a cosy Aurora Cabin with a panoramic glass roof. Apukka Resort is located about 15 minutes outside Rovaniemi city centre in the middle of peaceful nature, in between two lakes. Spend the remainder of the day familiarising yourself with the area and get to know your arctic playground. You can truly sense the Arctic nature and space opening above and around you in your cabin. The highlight is the panorama glass roof, which is heated, and always stays clear of frost and snow, offering a chance to see the Northern Lights. Aurora Cabins are equipped with twin beds and convertible sofa, private bathroom with shower & toilet. Dinners each evening will be served on site at Restaurant Aitta and tonight a buffet dinner awaits you.  

24 December 2019  Rovaniemi
After breakfast get ready for activities. Today, you have the chance for a sneak peek into one of the Santa's hideaways, situated in the surroundings of Apukka Resort. Tiptoe like a real elf, carrying a candle lantern, along the snowy path to Santa's Secret Hut. There, he will greet us with the warmest smile and every family, couple or group have their own private time to chat with him around the open fire. All children will get a small gift. It’s not only Santa that we are going to meet. As we are part of the group of Santa’s Little Helpers, we learn about being an Elf, trying our skills on: Reindeer sled, Husky ride (children in a big sled pulled by the guide), Tobogganing, Ice Sculpting, Snowmobiling (and mini snowmobiling for kids, minimum 4years). Also, we need to feed Rudolf and his friends, so that they are strong enough to start the long journey around the World. Santa & Ms.Santa have also asked our help to complete the Christmas decorations for Christmas. After a cheery morning, lunch at the restaurant. Evening excursion in a warm carriage on the Snowtrain. Head out in the wilderness, far from artificial lights, searching for the Northern Lights. Cross the beautiful snowy landscape to reach a traditional, Lappish “kota”; a hut deep in the wilderness. Gather around the blazing bonfire for sausages and hot drinks. The guide will help you with camera settings to best capture the Northern Lights. Festive dinners will be served on both days with wine package for adults and soft drinks for children. Christmas Eve is a traditional Finnish Christmas Festive buffet and traditional Christmas program.
