Kittila / Levi and whats the difference?


Can someone explain to me what's the difference between Kittila and Levi? Im looking to stay 2 days 1 night in March next year, can someone advice if i should stay in Levi for the 1 night or Kittila and what activities can i do there?

Im actually using it as a stop over for my drive down from Inari to KILPISJÄRVIas the drive straight from 1 place to the other is a bit too long.

Kittilä is the municipality and Levi is a ski resort on the land of Kittilä. The Levi area is much "bigger" tourist wise and the activities are based mostly there.

Kittilä is a small and undistinguished Lapland town with a cluster of villages. Levi resort is a few kilometres from the town.

I might also consider driving via Kautokeino and Karasjok (NO) from Kilpisjärvi to Inari. The scenery is more Lappish.
