The Nature in Levi
The nature in Levi, 172 km north of the Arctic Circle, is pristine and untouched. Here you can discover the so-called wilderness of Lapland. With the fresh air tickling your nose, you will go to the impressive fells, which offer an unusual sight. From the top, there is a wonderful view over Finnish Lapland. In the old pine forests, you will find peace and quiet and get away from everyday stress. The marshland around Levi is an experience in itself. The nearby Pallas-Yllästunturi National Park is also a good place for nature lovers and at the same time, you can learn interesting facts about the flora and fauna as well as the history of the park.
The summer is very special in Levi because the sun shines here continuously for 45 days, illuminating the landscape with a unique ambiance and allowing outdoor activities to take place even at night – no need for torches. Hiking during the nightless nights is an incomparable experience. From the end of August, as the nights grow darker, you will also discover the first rays of the northern lights. Autumn brings Levi the wonderful colors of nature. Forests, valleys and fells appear in vivid shades of red and orange, which enchant the landscape in a very special way. Now is the best time for forest walks, where you can pick berries and mushrooms.
