Because of its central location, Levi is the gateway to Northern Lapland’s unique nature and various biking opportunities. Heading to the national park of Pallas–Yllästunturi the diversity goes on and on. As an example, on the way to Ylläs you can see Aakenus right next to your route.
The friends of speed can also try taking the bike uphill with a lift to Levi Bike Park and various MTB enduro routes across the fell. You don't even need your own equipment, because everything you need is easily rentable on-site. Within Levi’s unique setting you can get addicted to speed and rewarded by development, followed by an opportunity to see the entire fell with its opportunities in a new light.
At first, the wide-wheeled “fatbike” looks suspect to many, but once you try it, you will be easily captivated! It is even more addictive, when you add an electric motor to assist you on the most demanding inclines. With the electric fatbike, you can see the whole of Levi change into a playground, which puts a smile on your face. Try, for example, to peddle the road to Levi peak with a normal bike and compare it to an electrically assisted bike. You will see and especially feel the difference in your legs!
