Levi

— 2 nights
Finland's largest and most popular ski resort, the fell of Levi provides excellent slopes and lively nightlife in an enchanting setting.
You'll explore the less-touristy side of things at Levi Huskypark and Powerun Adventures. Get outdoors at Kids' Land and Santa"s Cottage & Pet Farm. Change things up with a short trip to Jemes Sport in Yllasjarvi (about 48 minutes away). There's still lots to do: experience rural life at Ounaskievari Reindeer Farm, visit Inghams Mini Husky Experience, don't miss a visit to Huippupolku, Peak Trail in Levi, and join the crowd at Icekarting Levi.

Landmarks · Safaris · Nightlife
The wild expanses of Lapland promise spectacular scenery, adventure, and rich cultural experiences. As the country's northernmost region, it sits well above the Arctic Circle. Despite also being the largest region, in Lapland just 3.4 percent of the Finnish population calls this great stretch of land home, leaving plenty of room for pristine lakes, dense forest, and seven unspoiled national parks. An abundance of well-marked trails await hikers of all levels, while more remote and rugged adventures beckon experienced explorers. Music is of particular importance in these parts, so try to catch a concert or dance performance during your stay.
