What would a holiday be without Kids' Land? At Kids' Land by the Front Slopes, the smallest visitors get our full attention. Kids' Land has a pome lift and easy slopes, which make it easy to get started with skiing. The staff also lends stiga racers and toboggans to the area's sledding hill for the children to use. In case you get cold, have a break in the Lappish “kota” teepee in Kids Land. If you like, you can bring sausages to grill over the fire in the atmospheric hut.

Where to eat
Food is an important part of an active day in the outdoors and for having a great time together with the family.
At the base of the South Slopes, you'll find Restaurant Sivakka, offering delicious burgers and the soup of the day.
On top of the Front Slopes, there is the lovely and atmospheric Restaurant Horizont, where the whole family can enjoy pizzas, steaks, and salads. In the lower part of the Front Slopes, Cafe Zero serves bowl dishes and refreshments.
Next to the lower station of lift nr 6, at the Northeast Slopes, you'll find Restaurant Draivi, where you can enjoy tasty pizzas and the soup of the day.
In the West Slopes, near the lower station of the Gondola2000 lift, you'll discover Gondola Restaurant, which not only offers breathtaking slope views but also a delicious buffet, snacks, and a wide range of beverages. At the peak of Levi Fell, you can stop by Restaurant Palovartija to enjoy refreshments, coffee, and delicious pastries.
Levi is an easy resort to spend a winter holiday with children. And the easiest way to reach the slopes is by using Ski Buses. Buses transfer in November - early May between the main lifts and the major accommodation areas. There are two routes which connect at the very centre next to the Zero Point building at the Front Slopes. You may use buses even for spa and shopping trips.
However, if you want to move around with your own car, the largest parking spaces can be found in the Activity Park area (lower station of the Gondola2000 lift), South Point (South Slopes), West Point (lower station of the West chairlift) and Southeast Slopes (lower station of the 7B lift). It is easy to start the day from them, as there are lift ticket machines and restaurant services at the starting points.
