The Crazy & White Reindeer Complex is close to the slopes and full of pampering options, so it offers relaxation and get-up-and-go in equal measure.
You’ll find this cosy retreat about 10 minutes’ walk from Levi. It’s well geared up for thawing out, and comes with communal snugs with crackling log fires and plump leather sofas.
There’s a choice of bedrooms. Stay in the White Reindeer accommodation in the main building, or the Crazy Reindeer rooms in a separate one. And, if you've got the whole family in tow, suites sleep up to eight.

After being given your snow clothes at the airport, Santa's elves will take you to your hotel in Levi, Pallas or Yllas. Then, you've got the afternoon free to get a feel for your surroundings. Grab a toboggan and head for the slopes or take a walk through the snowy countryside.
Get a crash course in Lappish culture in this taster session. You can take a short husky sleigh ride, and have a go on a snowmobile. One of Santa's elves will tell you a story around the fire, too. The rest of the day is yours to spend how you fancy - wrap up and play in the snow or relax in the warmth of your hotel.
Cruise through the countryside on a snowmobile, or sit back and relax on a sleigh as huskies or reindeer do the hard work. Or why not book the Snow Village excursion? It includes loads of outdoor activities.
Head to Santa's activity area for a day of festive fun. Try your hand at decorating cookies and making Christmas tree ornaments, take a ride on a reindeer-pulled sleigh, and top your day off with a face-to-face meeting with Santa himself. On a Lapland Explorer trip you'll tuck into a traditional Christmas dinner at the gala meal, too.

2 night stay whilst on a work trip at the end of the season. Satisfactory room, clean and quiet. The bathroom could do with a facelift- a little dated and the overhead shower had poor flow. The breakfast was ok - good bread choice- but nothing special, As an English person I missed plain black tea bags, only fancy/ fruity choices. Staff on the whole friendly. More
A lovely family venue
From our spacious room we could see the ski slopes and it was a pleasant 7 minute walk through the town to Zero Point where we stored our ski equipment overnight. Our room was very comfortable and the hotel staff were most helpful, friendly and efficient. Breakfast was an excellent and substantial buffet on the 4th floor and we enjoyed our evening meal in the hotel's Ammila Restaurant. There was plenty of choice of skiing for our mixed ability and age group of seven people and the snow was wonderful - a great trip!More
Original Levi Hotel
Just came back from Levi. I like the place very much in general. This was our 5th time in a row at Hullu Poro Hotel. The location could not be better. Hotel have many restaurant at the same building and also near by. The bar and lobby are very cosy and it it our habbit to sit down and have a drink when coming back fron skiing. The staff is very polite and helpful. Breakfast is served at Taivas restaurant ( The Sky ) on the 5th floor. It is ok buffet. The room is ok also, but I think that the face-lift must be done in a near future. The bathroom was clean and tidy which is very important. Planning to go there also next spring.More
Crazy Reindeer Room - a good choice for a ski break
The Hullu Poro has several different types of rooms. We stayed in a 'Crazy Reindeer' room which was clean and comfortable. It had 2 twin beds, a fridge, kettle and coffee machine. There was a flat panel TV and good wifi for sharing those vital holiday pictures. Crazy Reindeer rooms are set in a separate building to the main hotel so you have to get dressed up to go for breakfast. The bathroom had clearly been recently refurbished as a shower wet room with underfloor heating. Our package included breakfast and buffet evening meal in the 4th Floor restaurant. The food was generally good. On an evening you had a choice of soup, salad bar, 3 x hot food (usually 1 vegetarian choice), a junk food section (burgers/hotdogs etc) and some desserts. There was water on the table, and other drinks available to purchase. As we were at the end of the season it was not full every night, but the food was regularly replenished and was kept at an appropriate temperature. The hotel is very well located for the ski bus route to South Point where the majority of blue runs are and it is a short walk downhill to the 'Front Slope' which are mainly red. The ski bus is either 3.50 per journey if you pay on the bus, or you can get your ski pass chared up with bus access. It's an even shorter walk to the start of the cross county trails which were great! The staff were very helpful and friendly and I had no real problems with my stay at all.More
Quirky Hotel â Fantastic ski holiday
The Crazy Reindeer is a quirky hotel decorated with reindeers on the walls and stars in the restaurant ceiling. It is not luxurious but it provides good accommodation for a ski break. We had a room with a sauna in the main building which was great particularly as our drying closet did not work. The room itself was nice and warm and very quiet, it was meant to be for two to three people, three would have been a bit of a squeeze but for two there was plenty of space. We had a fridge, sink and coffee maker, chair and twin beds. It looked out onto the main entrance of the hotel. Another benefit we were in the same building as the restaurant so didnât have to put on outdoor clothes to go for breakfast or dinner. The food in the restaurant was buffet style, there was a daily soup, salad, meat, fish and veggie main courses, a section with meatballs and chips if you didnât fancy main dishes and a choice of desserts. The salmon and reindeer options were a particular highlight. The chef even made an extra bit of chocolate mousse for us one night because it ran out before we got to dessert. For breakfast there were hot and cold options, cereal, porridge, bacon, sausages, scrambled eggs, fried potatoes, bread, cheese, ham, salad, plenty to keep you going for a day on the slopes. I would have liked to have seen bacon every day as some of the sausages were not really to my taste but thatâs just personal preference. Drink wise there was a choice of orange, apple or lingonberry juice, water, tea, coffee and hot chocolate. We used the jacuzzi in the spa area. It was lovely to relax in at the end of the day, we didnât try the plunge pool or the sauna because we had one in the room â which was a real treat. There is a ski room in the basement, ask for a key from reception and the ski bus stops outside the hotel so no lugging skis around. You can pay for the bus pass to be added to your lift pass when you pick it up. This is cheaper than paying each time you take the bus. The staff were lovely and helpful. The resort itself is great. You can walk down to the lake at night to look for the Northern Lights â we were really lucky and saw them several times. The snow was excellent as you would expect from being so far north. We had two sunny days then snow for the next two days giving fresh powder on the slopes and completely changing the views, then sun again. Very cold but then this is the Arctic Circle. We did the Snow Village excursion which we really enjoyed â itâs a smaller version of the Ice Hotel with rooms with ice sculptures, ice bar, ice restaurant and ice chapel. Itâs built fresh each year with different sculptures, lovely lighting and fun to wander around. I would have given 3.5 for the hotel itself but gave 4 for the whole experience. All in all a fantastic ski holiday.More
