And it doesn't end there: bet on your favorite at Icekarting Levi, look for all kinds of wild species at Santa"s Cottage & Pet Farm, and fly down the slopes at Kids' Land.

Copenhagen, Denmark to Levi is an approximately 9- hour combination of flight and car. You can also drive. You'll lose 1 hour traveling from Copenhagen to Levi due to the time zone difference. Expect a bit cooler temperatures when traveling from Copenhagen in February; daily highs in Levi reach -5°C and lows reach -12°C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 26th (Tue) to allow enough time to travel to Saariselka.
