“Nice place to base a hiking tour”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 14, 2012 via mobile

Found this by luck as we where late in booking. Was very pleased with what we got. Nice little place. Perfect for two. Close to lots of great hiking spots. Lots of good stores near - and a good kitchen means you'll not starve...good thing as there where hardly any restaurants open...

We stayed in a smaller cosy cabin which includes all necessities, fully equipped kitchen and sauna. We even had a washing machine which was very practical. the location is near a main road but we didn't hear anything. there is little traffic to start with. Free wifi in cabin although reception could be a bit better. all in all very good value for the 50 euro we paid in the summer. we can recommend it.

Stayed at the Levilehto Apartments first week of Easter break and had a fab time. Second trip to Levi (first on santa break) and this time came for the skiing with the family (wife, grandma 2 kids age 7 11).
APARTMENT.....had a 3 bedroom for 5 and there was plenty of room. Open plan living, dining and kitchen with all the necessary equipment (dishwasher, drying cupboard) etc. The apartments were well maintained and clean.
Skiing.....as others have said is mainly aimed at beginners and intermediates. If you skii regularly and are looking for lots of black runs then you may be disappointed. (there are 3) But there are plenyty of blue and red runs great for the kids who had only just learnt to ski. No queues at lifts (apart from good friday onwards) and lost count of times on piste with no one else in sight. We skiied every day sometimes 2x and still didn't cover all runs.
Levi... great little town/village with pleny of bars and restaurants. Cant really comment in these as were on half board option at Levtenturi spa hotel or ate in. FINLAND IS EXPENSIVE THOUGH drinks and snacks double price of England.
TIPS....
1 we went on half board option to Levitenturi spa so had best of both worlds. Had self catering room and cooking facilities if needed (last time in hotel room with 4=cramped) but could still eat out in am / pm if tired after day on slopes.
2 take a picnic (sausages, marshmellows etc ) to roast over open fire in one of the many KOTA's dotted around the pistes. The kids loved it).
3 a visit to the spa/swim world although expensive 54 Euros for family of 4 is weel worth it . We visited on last day as had to be out of room by 11am and spent 4 hours in there. Hot tubs cold tubs aerobics pools etc.
4 you can hire lockers at zero point for skii boots. Invaluable as you dont have to trek back with ski boots on and kids moaning. 25 euros for week.
5 book trips through tourist info. We went to husky park and ice fishing all slightly cheaper than with tour company.

Had a great time and defo recommend. Will be back soon.

stayed at levilehto for a week at the begining of March, we booked a 3 room apt so we could have a bedroom eacha nd still have the living room. The are supposed to sleep up to 6 but it would be very cramped at full occupancy. As it was we were very comfortable. Comfy beds, could have more clothes storage space as only 1 tiny wardrobe with 1 shelf in our room. Lovely sauna and heated up quickly, great to have the hallway for putting all your ski things and getting in and out without losing all the heat. Plenty of cooking facilities ( take your own as the one that was there was lethal!) Tv had some english speaking channels - a bit random as to what you got though and some very old programs ( flying doctors!).
Nice and easy to get to the supermarket and not bad but enough of a walk to the ski slope ( especially with a child). Inghams said it was 400m but we gps'd it at 600.
Lots to like about the place and we are thinking about going back next year.

Firstly, many thanks to Corcoran1 for the helpful reply to my PM.

Arrived in Levi about 2000 Sunday night in minus 30 temperature! Apartment keys issued by our Inghams rep en route from the airport. (Cabin 16). On arrival cabin was all warm and cosy and felt really inviting. Was a bit concerned that wouldn't be able to get milk and basics that time of night on a Sunday but no worries, supermarket across the road open until 2100 and had all we needed.

As we were leaving Levi the following Sunday at 1800 and knowing checkout was at 1100, contacted levilehto via e-mail to arrange late checkout. Confirmed this with reception on arrival and all was done (costs 30E).

Cabin was well equipped and had basics including W/U liquid, dishwasher liquid cleaning gear; salt&pepper; loo rolls and cleaning cloths etc. maybe these were left by previous occupants? Adequate supply of pots and pans etc to cook basic meals.

Found the supermarket nearer the Hullo Porro better stocked than the Levi market, also has the very important Alko shop attached!

Cabin got very warm and it took us nearly all week to regulate the temperature. The cabins are very well insulated, the log fire throws out a tremendous heat and whilst very cosy the residual heat warms the place so much it gets stifling when trying to sleep. Even opened the windows one night!

Didn't use the sauna so cannot comment on that.

Based on the good deal that we got for the week break, I'd say it was about right, paying full price would not have been so good, mainly because incidental costs are pretty high.

PS don't bank on the WiFi connection its rubbish, free but unsecured access from the Spa/bowling alley complex OK.

I stayed here with my wife between Jan 22nd and 29th in chalet number 15. Location is ideal for a number of reasons, we booked with Inghams and arranged several excursions, the pick up point for the excursions is at the sirkantahti hotel opposite, perhesafarit who deal with snowmobile safaris and thermal suit hire etc is also across the road as well as the supermarket which we used a few times.
We stayed in the smaller chalet, there is a small entrace foyer with a drying cabinet and space to hang coats etc, then the main room with kitchen area, sofa, log fire, table and then bunk beds which were actually really cosy, then the other room is the shower, wc and private sauna which was fantastic after a very cold day.
Also there is a tv with dvd player, we took a few dvds with us which was a good idea.
We booked with inghams as we found them to be quite reasonable on their website, we went in search of the northern lights and to enjoy the excursions. We were both non skiers, for skiers you would maybe have a 5/10 min walk to zero point for the ski lifts.

We found a couple of negative points with this accomodation,
Firstly the cleanliness which we found a little below par, hairs around the place, some of the kitchen utensils weren't clean.
Secondly we found the walls to be a little thin meaning we could hear the couple next door pretty clearly including their skype conversation one night, they were an elderly couple quite possibly a little deaf as well and perhaps we were a little unlucky in this respect as I don't see other reviews around noise!

I would be happy to return to this accomodation but would ideally prefer the larger chalet for a bit more room, the log fire and sauna were both fantastic. The sauna was warm pretty quickly, around 20-30 mins or so, in an ideal world they would have an electronic timer on it so it would be ready for when you got back!

Northern lights - we read reviews on trip advisor and walked down to the immelmokit cabins by the immeljarvi lake. From where we stayed it wasn't a long walk, 5 - 10 mins ish maximum You can see the lights on average on 4 out of every 5 days in levi provided there is no cloud cover, we were lucky enough to see the lights a little on sunday night and then for around 30 - 40 mins on the tuesday night.
http://www.gi.alaska.edu/AuroraForecast is useful for identfying when will be a good night.time for spotting. We went out around 10 ish, it seem between 10 - 12 pm is the best time for spotting.
It was a truly magical experience, a few people do go down to the lake as it is away from the lights of levi ( of which there isn't that many, it's just to improve your chances)

We booked many excursions, huskey safari, reindeer safari, ice karting, snow village and evening aurora safari on snowmobile.
Huskey safari was amazing, we were taken to a lovely huskey farm, all the animals well looked after well, gorgeous picturesque scenary and then were taken over the frozen lake and through the forest when the sun was going down.
Highly recommend that one, in fact all the excursions were great, for any more info do contact me.

Room Tip: I would punt for the one of the bigger rooms that are detached if possible.

This is our third stay at Levilehto Chalets. This time we just had a one bedroom which had the bedroom within the Living area. Only 3 of us so this was fine. Plenty of cooking facilities and very very warm. Most of the time we had to turn down heating and open windows (even though it was -22). Sauna was fantastic after a busy day in the snow. We love Levi and will be back again next year.
