Our favourites

The cross country novice

Levi has a “modest” 200km of cross country trails meaning you’ll have plenty to explore regardless of how quickly you pick up this elegant sport. The resort has a fantastic ski area as well so it offers a great opportunity enjoy downhill skiing at the same time.

The cross country enthusiast

As the home of the annual opening of the Cross-country World Cup and with nearly 200km of cross country tracks in resort and the surrounding area, Ruka is fantastic base for any cross country skier.

A bit of everything

We love both Ylläs and Saariselkä for those that just want to try everything. Both resorts offer an ideal combination of expansive cross-country trails, interesting downhill skiing and an incredible choice of activities, get ready for a non-stop holiday.
