Finland's largest and most popular ski resort, the fell of Levi provides excellent slopes and lively nightlife in an enchanting setting.
Escape the urban bustle at Levi Ski Resort and Nature & Wildlife Tours. Change things up with a short trip to Snow Village in Kittila (about 46 minutes away). There's lots more to do: admire all the interesting features of Ice Karting Levi, get your game on at Kid's Land, identify plant and animal life at Santa"s Cottage & Pet Farm, and don't miss a visit to LUVATTUMAA - Levi Ice Gallery.
