Things to do & see in Levi
Lapland is famous for offering a dazzling range of activities and fun excursions for every age, with its resorts offering far more than just skiing. Levi is the most well-known of Lapland’s resorts and is like a real-life Narnia, a beautiful village covered in snow but with surprises popping out left, right and centre. You’re spoilt rotten with the sheer volume of activities to choose from; whether you’re an adrenaline junkie, a nature lover or more of an R&R kind of person.
A trip here just wouldn’t be complete without a meeting with the man in red himself, as well as his reindeer! Another highlight is husky sledging and snowmobiling through the snowy wilderness is yet another thing to the bucket list! As well as skiing and cross-country skiing available; try out ice karting, ice fishing or ice skating. For those looking for a more relaxing option, you’re not forgotten with wellness facilities to sink into and unwind.
Snowkiting gives a whole different meaning to strapping on a pair of skis or a snowboard. It’s an exhilarating hobby which is easy to pick up and needs only wind and open, snow topped terrain and you’re good to go!
Riding Icelandic ponies and Finnhorses through the snowy wilderness is a super way to see the surroundings up close and not zooming past! Excursions tailor to every riding level, but if you prefer not to go on horseback, sleigh rides are available too.
Ice fishing is a one-of-a-kind experience. Wrapping up warm and heading to the frozen lake by reindeer, snowmobiles or snowshoes is followed by a fun day of catching a variety of fish which you can then grill on the fire and eat fresh with the beautiful frozen lake behind you.
Sauna & Ice Swimming
Relax in a traditional smoke sauna by the lake, with the option to dip into the lake post sauna to cool down. Some programmes involve transfers and a hot meal by a roaring open fire to truly relax you in every sense of the word.
So much for windsurfing on the waves, try something even cooler and give winter windsurfing a go. Using the wind and stable sleds you can be cruising through the Lappish landscape over ice or snow (different sleds for each) and it takes only a couple of hours to pick up the basics.
