The enchanting resort of Levi is located North of the Artic Circle in Finnish Lapland, it is part of the larger Lapland region, renowned for its pristine wilderness and unique Arctic experiences. Levi is a place of natural wonder, adventure, and cultural richness. Whether you're seeking outdoor thrills, a chance to see the Northern Lights, or a taste of authentic Lappish culture, Levi is a place where magic comes to life in the midst of a winter wonderland.
Located North of the Arctic Circle, the landscape is dominated by snow-covered forests, frozen lakes, and glistening fells, creating a winter wonderland during the colder months. In recent years its infrastructure has been developed to an enviably high standard with an impressive range of accommodation and a wide choice of excellent restaurants and cosy bars. Whilst you are away, you may be lucky enough to encounter the mystical Northern Lights, a celestial display of dancing colours that paint the night sky with hues of emerald green, sapphire blue, and fiery red, it really is the greatest light show on earth.
The Santa Experience
All of our three and four night Santa Breaks include a visit to Santa's Elves Hideaway at Tonttula, which is a short drive from resort. Santa's Elves Hideaway is tucked away in a whimsical, snow-covered forest, adorned with twinkling candlelight. It's a magical place where the whole family can immerse themselves in an enchanting atmosphere. Join the fun at one of Santa's magical workshops and make delicious gingerbread with Santa's friendly elves, meet Santa's reindeer and even attend Elf school, where you'll learn the secrets of Santa's Elves. There will also be plenty of exciting snow games for you to enjoy including tobogganing. The highlight of the day is meeting Santa in his cosy grotto - each family will have a private meeting with Santa in his grotto, and the children will receive a present during the visit.
There is always time to join your choice of additional optional activities, we have a range of excursions available to pre-book which allow you to immerse yourselves into the unique Lappish culture and traditions of the region. Whizz through the snowy fells on a snowmobile safari, speed through the wilderness and weave through the forest on a husky excursion or glide through the snow on a reindeer sleigh ride.
As Finland's most famous ski resort, hosting the World Cup ski events on its uncrowded snow-sure pistes, Levi is a brilliant place for families to try skiing for the first time, as well as improving your skills. If you have always wanted to try skiing, the slopes in Levi are ideal for learning as they're generally quiet and there is plenty of English speaking instructors to help - book a ski taster package for our four night breaks.
Enjoy an unforgettable short break in December to get the whole family well and truly into the festive spirit in the run up to Christmas!
