This recognizable fell is located in the village of Kilpisjarvi. You can climb to the top of the fell (1029m) along a trail which starts at the Kilpisjarvi tourist centre. Scrambling up to the top of Saana is a challenge worth doing. The longest set...more

There is a marked path to the top and stairs halfway up. No trees and if it's clear weather you see whole town and surrounding area all the time. If it is lots of snow in February it can be a problem. If many have hiked up there will be a good path to follow.
