You will join an organized group program.
Visiting the Elves Hideaway is a unique Christmas program for both children and adults only available in Levi. The Hideaway lies on the bank of the longest river in Lapland and hidden from the people’s eyes by the magic forest. Once the bus turns off the main road, thousands of candles and Christmas lights will guide the way to the Elves Hideaway.
Upon arrival you will be greeted by the cheerful Elf who will give you a secret map of the area leading you through the magic Fantasy world. A living fairytale in Lapland can begin!
Follow the Elves Path and you will find the Elves hidden huts – Elves Hideaway. Elves Hideaway was kept a secret from mankind for a long time. Today it is elves pleasure to invite you to step into the Elves Fantasy World.
Delicious gingerbreads are baked in the Gingerbread House. In the Elves School you may learn some secret elf skills such as making traditional handcrafts, speed reading, elf coding, sneaking and secret-elf-police skills. The Wise Elf´s House is located right beside the Elves School where you can find a Chrystal Eye on the roof that Ämmi (Grandmother) calls her third eye. Have you already heard about the large magic Seita Stone? The underground kingdom where the elves, goblins, people and other folk of the forest live in peace and harmony, respecting and helping each other.
At the authentic courtyard of Tonttula you will find the animals like sheeps. You may have a peak to the Elves storehouses, The Temple, Riverside Sauna and Blacksmith´s workshop.
There is Christmas every day and lots of interesting things to see at Tonttula Café. See how Elves swing on one wall, another adorned with magnificent traditional rags. The flaming fire in the stone fireplace and unhurried atmosphere provide an excellent setting to catch a breath for a moment with tasty pies or soup of the day. In the Elf Shop you will find the best souvenirs and gifts.
