Levi

Finland's largest and most popular ski resort, the fell of Levi provides excellent slopes and lively nightlife in an enchanting setting.
Start off your visit on the 24th (Tue): ski along the peaceful trails at Levi Ski Resort.

Plan my day in Levi using traveler tips and tourist information provided by Inspirock.

Dubai, United Arab Emirates to Levi is an approximately 15- hour combination of flight and car. You'll gain 2 hours traveling from Dubai to Levi due to the time zone difference. Prepare for much colder weather when traveling from Dubai in December: high temperatures in Levi hover around -6°C and lows are around -15°C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 24th (Tue) to allow enough time to travel to Inari.
