Levi

Finland's largest and most popular ski resort, the fell of Levi provides excellent slopes and lively nightlife in an enchanting setting.
On the 8th (Mon), make a trip to Ounasjoki - River for activities and then relax in the rural setting at Ounaskievari Reindeer Farm. Here are some ideas for day two: go for a walk through Huippupolku, Peak Trail in Levi, get a dose of the wild on a nature and wildlife tour, and then get all the equipment you need at Elan Ski Shop & Rental.

Plan my trip to Levi with suggested itineraries provided by Inspirock.
