If you are considering Finland as an option for your winter break, then there is a good chance that Lapland will feature highly on the list.

As the home of Father Christmas, it’s an area that has long been popular with families but it’s also home to Finland’s biggest ski resort – so is also the perfect option for those who want to enhance a magical Christmas break with some fun on the slopes, or indeed those who are just looking for some top class skiing.

Levi is particularly good for the less experienced skier, with the majority of runs being suitable for beginner and intermediate level visitors but only limited black runs for the experts.

With a relatively long season and good levels of snow, Levi is the perfect option for those who are looking to sample skiing for the first time, with the un-crowded slopes and good ski-schools – which include plenty of English-speaking instructors – combining to create a first class introduction to the sport.

With stunning scenery at every turn, unique accommodation and the change to marvel at the amazing beauty of the Northern Lights, it’s hard to imagine a more perfect destination in which to enjoy a ski break.

One thing for certain is that a trip to Levi is one you won’t forget in a hurry.
