just loved the whole experience, cant beat that view

Very good 8.0
Aurora cabin was great to lay back and watch the sky or view the northern lights. Very cosy and modern.
au3 night family trip
Fair 4.0
Generally disappointing.
Only options are paid excursions. No effort to welcome guests or create a memorable experience. Seemed more interested in making money than looking after customers.
Sergio Diez, au2 night romance trip
Good 6.0
Stayed in one of the aurora cabins. I feel it was a bit expensive for what it was. Had to ask for our floor heating to be turned up as the heater in the room is just for show. The location is quite far away so taxi rides are expensive and buses are not too frequent. There are activities run by the resort, but they are quite expensive also.

Very dated interior and smelt slightly mouldy.

Apukka with family
Our stay at Apukka was outstanding. The staff were friendly and happy to organise activities. The dinner was a great selection and breakfast was substantial. The place was peaceful and surreal at times. There were many paid activities of course, but there were other things to do like a nice walk on a track in the forest, play toboggans, sit by the lake or sit inside and relax by the fire. The place really is out of the way so as to enjoy the aurora and so you should do your shopping before coming up if you just want some snacks or other things from the supermarket. Transport is easy - you could have your own car (easy) or the resort will provide (most expensive) or you can get a taxi (which we did one way) or you can catch a bus from across the road (which we also did with comfort and no problems). Just do your research so you know what to expect. A wonderful experience!

Amazing holiday destination!
Amazing holiday destination. 15 mins drive out of Rovaniemi city Centre, next to a frozen lake which gives you prime positioning to see the northern lights. 5 mins drive to Santa’s village, workshop, post office and Santa world park. Don’t book tours with other companies, book through the resort, the customer service is unbelievable and the food at the resteraunt is beautiful.

Romantic getaway in Arctic wilderness
We stayed in the resort for 3 nights as part of our wedding anniversary celebration trip. Komsio suite was spectacular - Warm, spacious and with spectacular views from the bed into the starry night sky. During our stay we saw weak northern lights once as had signed up to Aurora alarm advertised in the room. Breakdast was delicious. We had quite few meals in the hotel and all food was absolutely amazing. I would recommend Reindeer sharing platter. We also did few trips through the hotel. I recommend husky ride and night-time snowmobiling. It was our first time to do both activities but guides were amazing. Would definitely stay at the hotel again if in the area. Additionally one of the big bonuses was that this hotel had bus stop on the road so it was easy and inexpensive to get to Santa Village and Rovaniemi.
