Finland's largest and most popular ski resort, the fell of Levi provides excellent slopes and lively nightlife in an enchanting setting.
Visiting Levi Ski Resort and Pallas-Yllastunturi National Park will get you outdoors. Change things up with a short trip to Nature & Wildlife Tours in Kittila (about 50 minutes away). There's much more to do: fly down the slopes at Yllas Ski Resort, don't miss a visit to Giewont Husky Adventures, get your game on at G2 ICEKARTING, and look for gifts at Elan Ski Shop & Rental.

To see where to stay, maps, and more tourist information, refer to the Levi online trip itinerary maker.
