Whether you’re bringing the little’uns to meet the man himself, exploring the unspoilt, snow sure ski areas or hoping to catch a glimpse of the awesome northern lights, this is somewhere you’ll have an absolute holiday of a lifetime.

Most popular ski resorts in Finland

Up in the Land of the Midnight sun, Levi is the fastest growing, best known resort in Lapland and indeed the nation. The ski area - one of the biggest in the country - gets bucketloads of snow and caters terrifically for families, there’s a super park with 2 half pipes and you can enjoy authentic Lappish après ski in traditional bars and restaurants.

Ylläs, pronounced “oo-lass” has a ski area with more runs than any other Finland resort and the lifts can upload the most snow lovers per hour. You’ll also find snowparks, a giant slalom, Findland’s longest piste (the 3km Jättipitkä) and oodles of powder to keep everyone happy. The skies here are really clear which makes this one of the most popular places to experience the unforgettable northern lights.

Levi and Ylläs are two of the top destinations if you want to treat your loved ones to the winter wonderland experience of their lives and spend time with Father Christmas in his homeland.

The log cabins you can stay in are as cosy as can be, and experiences like husky sledding and meeting reindeer are the icing on the cake.

The next big two when it comes to skiing are Pyhä and Ruka. Pyhä, pronounced “poo-har” has lovely scenic skiing through the unspoilt setting of Finland’s oldest national park. Twinned with North America’s legendary Jackson Hole, it has Finland’s best terrain for advanced skiing including some awesome steeps and moguls, tonnes of powder and an amazing floodlit funpark.

Ruka was voted the best ski resort in Finland in the 2013 World Ski Awards and it doesn’t take long to see why: with varied, snow sure pistes covered by a cheap lift pass, half of which are floodlit so you can ski into the evening, this large, modern resort is fast creeping up the popularity rankings.
