Luxury in Levi: Lovely Levi
Levi Finland is situated in the Kittila region of Finnish Lapland, the northern part of Finland, around 150km above the Arctic circle. Levi is famed for its majestic fell Levitunturi, that rises to rule the landscape and is used as a ski resort in the winter months between October and June. Within close proximity of Levi you can find the home of Santa Claus and a snow village with a restaurant, hotel and bar entirely made from ice. Whether it's the slopes that you come here for or any of the other sights and activities in the area, you can be sure that Levi Finland will entertain the whole family. In addition to activities on skis, a winter holiday in Levi includes exciting experiences organized by the local activity programme companies, a wide range of culinary pleasures, from quick snacks to themed dinners, self pampering, and a high standard choice of entertainment. The nearest airport to the Levi resort is in Kittila, around 15 minutes away by car or bus. Airport proximity, a compact village centre with all the necessary services and Lappish nature and exoticism have made Levi tourism into an international success story.
The Levi area started growing only in 1970 and today the Woman's World Cup opening in Slalom is raced in Levi. Many Finnish celebrities have their own chalets in the area. The most important advice for anyone planning a trip to Levi Lapland is to know what weather to expect and dress accordingly. In the winter months the temperature has been known to go as low as -50°C so thermal base layers and face masks are indispensable. This may sound extreme but the dry Arctic air makes it much more tolerable. The area surrounding the fell in Levi is relatively flat and the views from the top of Levi fell are astounding, on a clear day you can see for miles. The wide variety of winter activities on offer along with the opportunity to see the northern lights or midnight sun, make Levi Finland an excellent, all year round, family holiday destination. The accommodation in Levi Finland is located all around the base of the Fell. A regular bus links the different areas with the main village centre. Most of the accommodation including luxury chalets offered by Leo Trippi in Levi is in the traditional Finnish style.
