April 17th, 2021


A new winter season is coming! Welcome to experience a unique cross-country skiing challenge Ylläs-Levi on April 17th, 2021 in Fell Lapland.  The race courses go through the beautiful Lappish fell scenery in Pallas-Yllästunturi National Park from Ylläsjärvi, Äkäslompolo, Kukastunturi, Pyhäjärvi and finally heading to Levi.

The 70km race is a challenging and rewarding course with longer climbs and easier flats through the artic birch forest. If you want an easier challenge, a course of 55 km is offered, starting in Äkäslompolo and leaving out the climb before Kätkänlaavu.

Western Lapland offers perfect snow conditions throughout the winter season, which makes it the perfect place to finish of your winter season. Both Ylläs and Levi are easily accessible by plane, train or car. Warm welcome!
