It has been predicted that there's going to be Northern Lights in Levi soon. So take a look skywards! Prediction provided by Sunsää.
n addition to all the fun outdoor experiences, we recommend to leave room for proper relaxation – with true fell village style. Levi’s wellness services are filled with ancient tradition and unique Lappish atmosphere.
“Our customers tell us that after a relaxing massage or a moment in the sauna they feel happiness beyond anything they’ve experienced before!” is told from Hullu Poro Relax Centre. Here are a couple of picks from the magic of Levi wellness:
Hot Stone Massage – warmth and energy from ancient Lappish stones
After an active outdoor day in brisk winter weather, what would be better than blissful warmth in your muscles? A Hot Stone Massage nurtures your body and mind with lovely warmth radiating from lava stones and Lappish natural stones such as beautiful jasper and calming milky quartz. Soft, polished stones are also used when massaging your neck and head. Don’t let this wonderful experience pass you by!

Herb Oil Massage – treat aches with Lappish herbs
When your muscles or joints are aching, Lappish Herb Oil Massage is a treatment worth checking out. It is based on local heritage of the healing properties of juniper, meadowsweet, and common yarrow. These herbs, growing in the unpolluted nature of Lapland, are used in oil, which relieves pain together with a massage. The treatment is crowned with a relaxation through the sounds of Lappish drums.

Peat sauna – a refreshing oasis
Here’s a true Levi treat: an over 100 year-old former log house on the river bend of magnificent Ounasjoki river, turned into a sauna with soft, soothing warmth. And that’s not all; while bathing, you can try out the traditional peat treatment, which nurtures your skin, refreshes your whole body, and increases metabolism. The peat comes from the Lapland peat bogs. Finish the refreshing experience by relaxing in a jacuzzi, by taking a swim in the river – or if you dare, a hole in the ice in the wintertime! Guided peat treatments are available at Taivaanvalkeat sauna.
