April 9th, 2022


A new winter season is coming! Welcome to experience a unique cross-country skiing challenge Ylläs-Levi on April 9th, 2022 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.

New distance, 55 km Duo Challenge. This is Ylläs-Levi 55 km distance divided for two skiers. First one skies from Äkäslompolo to Pyhäjärvi, the other one from Pyhäjärvi to Levi. Bus transportation is included in the price and is organised for the second skier from Äkäslompolo to Pyhäjärvi, and for the first skier from Pyhäjärvi to finish line in Levi.

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!
