This about 10 km long trail follows the top parts of Levi fell, and while walking it one can see beautiful vistas opening with sights of other bigger fells of the area.
Distance 10.2 km
The trail starts by the Levi Summit Conference Centre courtyard travelling clockwise around the Levi fell, close to the tree line, and returns back to Levi Summit. The almost 9 km trail will feature 13 nature trail signposts and 10 kilometre posts. The signs cover the Ice Age theme over the course of a time line of 30 000 years, and geographically over an area of 9 km, representing each period with a different animal figure. The second theme of the signs is the geology of the area. The kilometre posts along the route tell the tale of time as well. They use a scale of 10 000 years per metre i.e. each kilometre takes one back ten million years in time. The kilometre posts introduce animals that have lived during this period all around the world. These posts eventually take us back in time 80 million years.
Tips and hintsAbout halfway through the trail there is an open Lappish teepee where you can make a fire and roast some sausages. From this teepee you will also get a view towards the iconic Santa’s cabin that was built for the Finnish movie Christmas Story, which is a popular spot for photographers and visitors.
