Saana is a fell in Enontekiö, Finland. Saana's summit lies 1029m above sea level and 556m above the adjacent Kilpisjärvi lake. Geologically it is part of the Scandinavian Mountains, and is made of the same kinds of schist and gneiss rock. The mountain was historically considered sacred to the Sami people. The peak is a popular destination for hikers and backpackers because of the sweeping views offered at the summit.Put Saana into our Kilpisjarvi itinerary builder and find out what's close by, where to stay, and where to head next.

At the top the view is fantastic, for the other mountains and the Lake just below, there's a box of messages at the top to let a souvenir, really cool idea! Basic tip, of course, take water and something to eat, clothes and shoes suitable for the trail.
If you have time then walk to the top ;)
Wonderful view from top of Saana. Kind of sport to get up there but there is stairs half of the way. So, it's easy but need some condition.
Summit, looks like a mountain but finnish
Routes are a few, but the main pathway is the best. Through the forest, which does not pass through the wide path, is the politicians a lot, but also plants. Not exactly the speed of the movement. The starting point is the signage of Lake Kilpisjärvi tourist center. For a trip you should set aside some time and something to eat and drink, if already not familiar with rock climbing. Ladies apparel, the wind can be hard, the weather can change quickly. Visibility can be only in the legs. Check out well in advance, though it can vary. Hurry up, it is not practical to keep my fitness must be taken into account, and here it is not worth their own health come to test. Here is a long way to come off of a worsened condition. And is not running in the new shoes. But when things are in order, can be on your way to enjoy the scenery and take photos. The route itself is easy, but because of the rise of a lot, it requires a degree of basic fitness. Probably a good part of the trip are available. My comfort is to walk, of course, to the right of the country.
The best mountain which I know. Well yksyy ainaskin my name is Karolina.
