London, UK to Akaslompolo is an approximately 10-hour flight. You can also drive. Traveling from London to Akaslompolo, you'll lose 2 hours due to the time zone difference. Traveling from London in February, expect Akaslompolo to be colder, temps between -5°C and -12°C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 4th (Mon) to allow time to drive to Levi.
