Skiing in the Arctic Circle - 27/02/2019
Overall

This was our second visit to Levi and The Crazy Reindeer and it did not disappoint. The Crazy Reindeer is a lovely hotel, whilst the rooms are not huge they have everything you need; comfy beds, drying cabinet, and loads of storage space. Our bathroom was huge with a lovely double headed shower that always had loads of hot water. There are plentiful amounts of food to suit all palates both at breakfast and dinner. Our only slight niggle was that on arrival we found out that our room wasn't in the main hotel block. We were in an annex that was 100m from the main building so every time we headed to breakfast or dinner we had to get togged up in our warm clothes and boots. Whilst this wasn't a huge problem it would have been nice to know that we weren't in the main building before leaving the UK so we could have packed accordingly. Although this year we didn't use the gym or sauna I wouldn't have liked the idea of having to put on lots of clothing to walk across to then strip off and use the facilities and then get re-togged to get back to our room! We were extremely lucky with the weather this year as for a number of days we had beautiful blue sky and sunshine. We also saw the Northern Lights which were amazing. Apres-ski is good. There are a number of good bars. It is nice to wander around the village looking for souvenirs and ski wear. Renting boots and skis is painless. They offer a good selection of up-to-date equipment and are always happy to offer any advice and change anything that doesn't fit. You do have to remember that eating/drinking out is expensive - a beer and a gin and tonic was 18 euros. We love it here and have already planned to go again in 2020.

Holiday of a lifetime - 16/02/2019
Overall

We had a wonderful holiday. The Crazy Reindeer hotel accommodation was great and the food wonderful. The staff were helpful and there was an interesting variety of nearby restaurants to try. The excursions were brilliant and the Ice Hotel visit spectacular. Skiing conditions were excellent with no queues on the piste. Extra precautions needed though due to extreme low temperatures. Advice on how to avoid frostbite would have been welcomed on arrival?

Overall

good size, with a balcony and bathroom with a good shower. The buffet for breakfast was great, and the one for dinner every night was fantastic - lots of choice, cold and hot, healthy and/or more rich, desserts and good soups. Levi itself is a pretty little place - not exactly pumping like some other ski resorts, but a nice place to spend a week. Two days of skiing on the 'mountain' were fun, but really plenty, and we spent the rest of the week racing huskies, driving snowmobiles, walks at night to look for the Northern Lights and chilling out at the hotel. A few nice bars in town - we don't normally hang out in Irish bars on holiday, but in this case it was the most happening place in town. Fantastic for the last minute price, a fun week.

Levi Finland - 08/04/2011
Overall

We came across Levi by accident — a half price, half board deal at the Crazy Reindeer. The accomodation is clean and well located to the slopes. The rooms have a fridge and clothes dryer which is excellent. The food is very good, the breakfasts are typical bacon, eggs, salad, cold meats, cereals, porridge, bread and a selection of preserves. The evening meal is soup (home made), salad and a selection of hot meals, including chicken & reindeer along with other typical Finnish dishes. Don't expect chips, beans and burgers or other British-style dishes as you will not get them, pizza and curries are also out. That said I loved the meals — I am not a picky eater. People tend not to drink wine with the meals as you are looking at £17+ per bottle, but you can get as much water as you like, and unlimited fresh juice, coffee and hot chocolate. The service is good and friendly. Levi is an ideal intermediate ski holiday location. The slopes are short at all levels though the snow is excellant and guaranteed. If you plan on going to Levi you need a face mask and a knowledge of base leyers (you are within the Arctic Circle). The lifts are mostly T bars which is a pain after a while, however the reason for this is the the lift mechanisms can freeze when the weather turns bad. To ski in freezing fog, in a snow stormm while under flood lights is an experience, especially when you can only see 30 feet infront of you. If you are an intermediate to advanced skier don't disregard the resort as the ski school is excellant — they go into the science of skiing. The only down side of the week was the length of the runs.
