Have a unique beach holiday in Levi in July 

Day time temperatures range from 20-25 degrees Celsius in July –  this is when Lapland’s summer is at its best. Levi has two lovely beaches and a third in Kittilä, where you can swim and enjoy the cool water of the Ounasjoki river. There are various water activities at Levi, all of which are quite an exotic experience! Stand up paddle surfing, rowing in a rowboat or canoe in the fell scenery sparks joy in your soul!

The 24-hour sunlight doesn’t need to limit what you get up to; if anything, it’s hard to go to sleep while the sun’s golden light invites you to come outside and play.

The Taalojärvi lake inside the course brings an additional challenge to the game and splendour to the golf course environment.

The beginning of the Northern Lights season and autumn

As summer fades, the harvest season soon begins, and you can collect the fruit that has ripened under the Midnight Sun. It is still summer at the beginning of August in Levi. However, autumn starts at the end of August. The magical Northern Lights begin to appear as the night sky starts to darken as early as at the end of August. Many people think the end of August is the best time to see the Northern Lights. The temperature ranges from 10 and 20 degrees Celsius in August.

Autumn starts in September, and its bright colours offer a breathtaking experience, the ever-changing colours of the trees and the earth under your feet. Autumn is a beautiful time to hike in the fell; this is when the most beautiful blueberries, bilberries, and bearberries are found. Enjoy the fresh air outdoors during the day when temperatures are around 5 and 15 degrees Celsius in September.

Hiking at its best

The hiking season begins once the snow melts, which lasts from October to November until the first snow arrives. Whether you are looking for a shorter excursion or a route of several kilometres, there are hiking tracks of different lengths in and around Levi. The weather is pleasant in June, and nature is a lush bright green. The weather is the warmest in July, so try hiking at night; it’s a great experience under the Midnight Sun! In August, you can pick berries and eat them straight away while you’re on your hike. Everything starts changing colour to the wonderful autumn colours on both the trees and the ground in September.

You can easily see Levi’s hiking tracks on either a digital or hard copy version of the track map. Levi Tourist Information can help you find some nice tracks.
