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.

List of all activities

Snowmobile Safaris

Snowmobiling is a great way to take in the beautiful scenery as well as an exhilarating and fun sport, no sporty genes necessary but a driving license is! Levi has a selection of companies who both rent snowmobiles and offer a variety of tours so you can pick whatever works best. There are 750km of snowmobiling trails to whizz around and safaris can head to the Ranua Zoo, traditional Lappish farms, Santa Claus’ Village or the shores of Lake Immel to name a few. Night time tours can sometimes be organised for a truly authentic experience - if you’re lucky you’ll get to see the Northern Lights as you cruise underneath the starry sky.

Reindeer

Levi has an ancient history of reindeer farming that originated with the Sami people and what’s so fun is that you can have your own authentic experience on a reindeer safaris. Several companies go one step further and you can actually meet and interact with the reindeer - sometimes even reindeer calves - as part of a safari package. If you love the peace and tranquil beauty that Lapland offers then travelling by reindeer sleigh is a great way to truly appreciate the spectacular woodland and snow-covered landscape around you. Levi has several different reindeer farms like the Ounaskievari and Sammun-Tupa Reindeer Farms which are both easy to access.

Husky Sledding

Levi has several different husky farms and companies like Levi Husky Park and Tundra Huskies where you can meet and learn about these adorable animals - often you can have a go at driving your own sled! Several of the farms are just outside of Levi but the safari tours usually include transfers to keep things simple. Sled rides are usually available for tots as young as 4 and they’re a magical thing to do together as a family. The husky experiences often come in a range of different lengths and you can visit a variety of different locations ranging from the winter forest to the Egg Lake. Safaris at dusk are magical and they sometimes even supply hot drinks and sausages!

Meet Santa

A family trip to Lapland has to involve a meeting with Santa himself and Levi is the ideal location to do that, it’s known after all as the home of Father Christmas. You can usually take a snowmobile or reindeer sleigh to Santa’s cabin just 15 minutes away or travel further afield to Rovaniemi where you can visit Santa Claus Village. Depending on what tour you choose you can sometimes decorate Christmas cookies, go tobogganing or sleigh riding with the elves or be served tasty treats by Mrs Claus herself - a Santa experience that’s bound to be unforgettable (don’t forget your camera!).

Cross Country Skiing

Cross-country skiing lays some of its origins in Finland, which is why Lapland is such a hub for cross-country enthusiasts and Levi has 230km of cross country trails. The cross-country season kicks off with the first frost and is symbolised by the opening of the Firstsnow track (usually at the beginning of November), but the real challenges come later with several tracks designed to be tough and steep. The one that sets of from the ski centre at the base of the Front Pistes is usually a healthy challenge. If you fancy a break, the trails are littered with cosy cafes where you can grab a sugary treat or warming drink before you head back on your way.

Snowshoeing

Instead of strapping a pair of skis to your feet, why not strap something a little different... Snowshoeing is a fun way to experience the fantastic scenery that Levi has to offer. They may be funny to look at it and appear a little daunting, but after a couple of steps you’ll be sorted – it’s actually much easier than it looks! It’s incredibly peaceful to trek into the wilderness, seeing unbelievable views and walking through untouched powdery snow whilst hearing all about the incredible history of Levi from your guide. Snowshoe excursions are often held at night-time which is one of the best ways to catch the elusive Northern Lights.

Skiing

Levi’s ski area has the most pistes of all the Lapland resorts as well as it being incredibly user-friendly as the ski area is split into several areas. Beginners and intermediates are especially well looked after whilst the few black runs have unreal views of the frozen lakes and there’s a good number of off-piste options as well. ‘Lastenmaa Kids’ Land’ is heaven for children with easy, wide runs while for boarders and free-stylers there are two awesome terrain parks packed with kickers, rails and boxes as well as a superpipe and roller line.

Other Attractions

Snowkiting

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!

Horse Riding

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

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.

Winter Windsurfing

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.
