That night in the ’60s, Päivikki was on her way home from school. The northern lights wandered across the sky of the Köngäs village. Also known as the Taivaanvalkeat (White Northern Lights), they were brighter and clearer than Päivikki had ever seen. There were two reindeer running over the northern sky one blue, one white. Of the two, the spirit of the blue reindeer later became known as the Hullu Poro. It was the beginning of Levi’s enchantment, which eventually grew over the years to its present form. But the other white reindeer flew further into the sky and turned into an eagle. That eagle landed on the roof of a granary as a sign of impending transformation. This is how a place that became so special and protected became known as Taivaanvalkeat (the White Northern Lights). At Levi, you’ll meet both reindeer if you want: the blue Hullu Poro, that rocks with you all the way to morning or the white Taivaanvalkeat reindeer that takes care of the whole family, body and soul.
