WINTER – SPRING
Winter on the fell could best be described by snow, complete silence and a starry sky made bright by the frost. This coldest time of year hides within it tremendous beauty and magic. The polar night fills the fell with romance, and the best ending to a day spent outdoors is relaxing by a roaring fire. The blue hues of the heart of winter are a delight and the seasonal holidays – Christmas and New Year – make tradition a part of the visit.
When the polar night gives way to the first rays of sunshine, the fell begins to prepare for a new season – the spring. This beautiful time of year is flooded with light while the perfect snow still crunches beneath shoes and skis. It is the peak time for skiing, both downhill and cross-country, as well as for gazing upwards and seeing the northern lights.
Cross country skiing
Cross country skiing is one of the best ways to appreciate the serenity of Finnish forests whilst bringing peace to mind and body. Levi offers 230km of maintained tracks for everyone from beginners to ski enthusiasts.
