One of Finland’s most popular ski resorts is located in the small but lively town of Levi. Although it is primarily known for its skiing facilities, the attractions to this fabulous resort far extend just its snowy slopes. Walking on a year-round frozen lake, seeing the Northern Lights or going on a reindeer safari are just some of the unique aspects of this part of the world that you can’t do anywhere else.
Budget-friendly holidays to Finland are available from most major airports in the UK. There are a number of ways to access this exciting resort, but we suggest flying to either Helsinki or Stockholm and getting a transfer to Kittila airport. The resort is just 15-minutes away from there. Check the Cheeky Trip comparison site for some of the best deals to winter ski resorts around the world. Flight duration to either of these major airports tend to be in the range of 3 to 3 and a half hours.
Peak ski and winter season is probably the best time to visit Levi due to the number of activities and with higher tourist numbers bringing more of a buzz to the area. This place is one of Europe’s most snow-sure resorts and has led to the Ski World Cup returning here year after year in the month of November. This is often considered the best time to stay in the resort but with all of the goings on not just here but in nearby places like Lapland, there isn’t really a bad time to come during the winter.
The skiing in Levi is primarily geared towards beginners and intermediates, with not many options of challenging slopes for the more advanced skiers out there. Beginners will find Levi to be a total paradise for finding their feet with skis attached to them. Almost the entire ski resort is made up of easy slopes, including the long, easy and picturesque forest runs to Itarinteet and Etelarinteet. Intermediates will also find a good selection of blue and red pistes that provide more of a challenge but nothing too extreme. Although there are less than 3km of black runs in Levi, the ones that they do have are definitely worth doing if you are in the resort.
Levi is a highly-visited resort in Finland and as a result, there are plenty of accommodation options to choose from. Most places provide very easy access to the slopes and the hotels in the villages of Sirkka and Levikeskus are located directly on the slopes. As well as hotel options, there are chalets, self-catered apartments and B&Bs too. Fine-dining restaurants are in fairly short supply here but refreshments can be found at almost all valley stations throughout the resort.
