Finland's largest and most popular ski resort, the fell of Levi provides excellent slopes and lively nightlife in an enchanting setting.
Explore Levi's surroundings by going to Pallas-Yllastunturi National Park (in Muonio) and Snow Village (in Kittila). On the 27th (Fri), ski the day away in the pristine settings at Levi Ski Resort. There's lots more to do: explore and take pictures at Ice Karting Levi, admire the masterpieces at Museum of Fine Arts Einari Junttila, make a trip to Giewont Husky Adventures, and deepen your understanding at Kid's Land.

Rovaniemi ©
An urban center set amongst the great Arctic wilderness, Rovaniemi serves as the capital of Lapland province.
Kick off your visit on the 30th (Mon): find something for the whole family at SantaPark - the Home Cavern of Santa Claus, then have fun at Santa Claus Office, and then find something for the whole family at Santa Claus Village. Get ready for a full day of sightseeing on the next day: catch some excitement at Feelapland, get engrossed in the history at Arktikum, and then pause for some serene contemplation at Rovaniemi Church.

Plan my Rovaniemi trip by asking Inpirock to come up with tips and suggestions.

Getting from Levi to Rovaniemi by car takes about 2.5 hours. Other options: take a bus. In December, plan for daily highs up to 22°F, and evening lows to 11°F. Wrap up your sightseeing by early afternoon on the 1st (Wed) to allow enough time to travel back home.
