Finnish Lapland is preparing for the return of travellers with promising new investments. The Rovaniemi-based travel company, Apukka Resort, is investing nine million euros in the Lapland Kammi Suites and continues to develop its service while maintaining its authentic and personalised customer experience. Tourism companies in Lapland are confident in the growth of the Lapland travel industry after the restrictions of the Corona pandemic.
The main objectives of the investment project are to increase the resort's capacity with unique types of accommodation and to support the recovery of tourism in Lapland. Apukka Resort's investment includes 35 Lapland Kammi suites, 15 Lapland Kammi family suites, a Kota restaurant and traditional saunas, and an expansion of the current restaurant and reception. The first part of the investment project, with 15-20 kammi suites and five family suites, will be ready for the 2021-2022 winter season. The word "kammi" traditionally describes an accommodation which is partly built underground and isolated with moss.
The suites provide ecological Lapland luxury with an authentic Kammi feel. They accommodate two to four people, and the family suites have room for up to six people. The panoramic windows give a unique chance to experience Lapland's eight seasons; everything from the midnight sun, the colourful Arctic autumn and the Northern Lights.
