This group of salubrious villas on the edge of the Ounasjoki River are the height of luxury amongst the wilds to the Arctic.
Levi Spirit's nine luxury villas combine the upmost comfort with the wild Arctic of Finnish Lapland. The enormous windows bring the serene, snow covered surroundings inside, and the Scandi-chic modern design is complemented by the best natural materials to create a cosy, welcoming haven from the cold outside. Each villa sleeps a maximum of ten people, in four en-suite bedrooms and a loft for two people. The living spaces' vaulted ceilings and floor to ceiling windows fill the space with light and air, and the fireplaces, furry rugs, and throws make sure that it is toasty warm. Villas also have private saunas, terraces and balconies for guests to enjoy.
The villas are found on the calm side of the Levi fell, next to the Ounasjoki River and surrounded by unique nature of Taalovaara. Right around the corner are the best experiences in Finnish Lapland, including snowmobiling, skiing and snowshoeing. Levi, the nearest town, is just 10 minutes drive away and is home to a wide range of restaurant which can cater to whichever cuisines guests are hankering for, from Asian, Russian to local Lappish flavours. With 480 huskies and other sled dogs, an average of 111 sightings of the Northern Lights every year, and over 140 miles of cross country trails there is plenty to keep everyone entertained.
Why we love it
The luxurious finishing touches at Levi Spirit really add to the experience, such as the Kammi room where guests can sit around the open fire and share stories.
