According to an old Lappish and Sami tradition, in Levi people experience eight seasons. The Midnight Sun: in summer between June and July the sun never sleeps and shines around the clock for 45 days. This is a great time for outdoor activities such as hiking, biking, canoeing, riding and golfing late into the bright night. The Harvest time: the summer days get shorter and the evening darker; it is the time to pick superfood like berries and many other delicacies straight from the pure nature. The Autumn: forests, valleys and fells are painted in autumn’s vibrant reds and oranges. It is a great time to go for walks in the forest, to pick berries and mushrooms. It’s the time to start enjoying the first glimpse of Northern Lights. The First Snow: nature has slowed down and the first snow and ice covered the river, lakes, marshland and forest. It is time to take out the skies again, to go snowshoeing, hunting for Northern Lights or to experience husky and reindeer sleigh rides. Polar Nights: the sun does not rise above the horizon; the nights are long, and it is time to prepare for Christmas and a visit to Santa! The Real Winter: the sub-zero winter season is the best time to enjoy the frosty landscapes and all winter activities that come to mind, also a sauna and ice-plunging in the lake. The crusted snow: the first rays of sun inspires you to be outdoor and enjoy skiing, fat-biking, snowshoeing, horse riding or just being in nature on crispy crystal-clear snow. The Springtime: nature prepares for summer and the snow and ice slowly melt away leaving room for the first stalks of grass to resurface.
The Northern Lights or Aurora Borealis is a magical natural phenomenon, to be experienced at least once in one’s life! In Levi you can hunt and enjoy the Northern Lights dancing in the dark arctic sky from the end of August until beginning of April. The Northern Lights delight visitors and locals alike with their green-blue-red-violet light. According to old beliefs, the Aurora Borealis is created by the tail of a Firefox running over the fells. And still nowadays in many cultures it is believed that seeing the Northern Lights brings health, wealth, good luck, love and other lucky omens. A Northern Lights display is always an unique experience: the lights never look the same and they even change within the same night. Levi offers a comprehensive variety of excursions and events to hunt for and capture this special phenomenon. Furthermore Levi has 105 northern lights accommodation, so you can delight in this magical experience from your comfy bed – how cool is that?
