And one other thing unlike the Husky ride where we had a "musher" or handler aboard, the reindeer "do their own thing" and just take off. And I've only just noticed in my photo that in the distance you can see the big overtaking manoeuvre taking place!!!
And it appears that the area known as Lapland in fact extends over four countries, Finland, Sweden, Norway and even a small part of Russia!!! Levi is a fell located in Finnish Lapland and the largest ski resort in Finland. The resort is located in the Kittila municipality and is of course served by Kittila airport just 15 minutes down the road. It is about 170km north of the Arctic Circle. The peak of the Levi fell is at an elevation of 531 metres above sea level and there are 43 ski slopes, 17 of which are floodlit, and 27 ski lifts in Levi. Levi is an early stop on the World Cup circuit hosting slaloms in mid-November. The resort's location usually guarantees generous snow cover and sub-zero temperatures throughout winter. The skiing and snowboarding season in Levi is fairly long often lasting from October to mid-May.
At the top of the steps for our Flybe flight to Birmingham and one last photo. Daughter Jenni said "why are you photographing the pilot"! The next day crazy high winds would cause chaos at Birmingham with flights trying unsuccessfully to land and being diverted to Gatwick so we were lucky!
Another superb view from our hotel.
Santa's reindeer waiting patiently outside the hotel. Unfortunately we didn't witness his departure because the word had gone out, "Northern Lights", and we all roared off into the forest to witness this phenomenon.
At the Christmas party on our last night with the Big Cheese himself.
Another shot of the ski-slope with the ski-lift in action. The gondola we went up in is over to the right of the slope with the Hotel Levi Panorama up top!
...and the village square again.
The colourful Levi market at the bottom of the ski-slope. Very expensive stuff but I suppose they have to make their money in a few months before the snow goes in spring.
