Overview
More
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 of stairs in Finland helps you at the steepest part of the four kilometer journey. From the top of the Saana you can see for miles!

This is a wonderful place, where Santa Claus probably lived! A people from four different countries with only one culture, linked by reindeer herd! Extreme temperatures marked this wonderful culture determining a very unique way of living!

It's really hard not to see this attraction. This is the monument, or the centerpiece of Kilpisjarvi area. It's huge mountain with possibility to climb on it. It's nice hike, definitely worth to do.

Just drive you car to the hiking center beside the road and the hiking trail begins there. It's easy to hike to the top. The steepest side has stairs. Lovely view all the way to the top.

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... More
