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 20th (Sun): take in the exciting artwork at LUVATTUMAA - Levi Ice Gallery, then look for gifts at Jemes Sport, then make a trip to Lapland Hotels SnowVillage, and finally make a trip to Giewont Husky Adventures. Here are some ideas for day two: grab your bike and head to Levi Ski Resort, then join the crowd at Icekarting Levi, and then identify plant and animal life at Santa"s Cottage & Pet Farm.

Plan a trip to Levi easily and quickly by telling Inspirock to suggest an itinerary.

London, UK to Levi is an approximately 10- hour combination of flight and car. You can also drive. You'll lose 2 hours traveling from London to Levi due to the time zone difference. Traveling from London in December, expect Levi to be cooler, temps between -6°C and -15°C. Cap off your sightseeing on the 21st (Mon) early enough to travel to Saariselka.

An urban center set amongst the great Arctic wilderness, Rovaniemi serves as the capital of Lapland province.
Take a break from Rovaniemi with a short trip to Ranua Zoo in Ranua, about 1h 05 min away. There's much more to do: make a trip to Santa Claus Village, see the interesting displays at Christmas House Santa, find something for the whole family at SantaPark - the Home Cavern of Santa Claus, and enjoy some diversion at Santa Claus Office.

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