  • 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 d...  more »
  • We arrived on snowmobiles. We were not allowed to leave the path traced to fear failure, but good anyway

  • Ascent to the mountain is very easy, we spend more or less 2:00 to 2:30 in a quiet pace. 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.

  • 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.
  • If you have time then walk to the top ;)
  • Summit, looks like a mountain but finnish
  • Wonderful as always because it is nature! 👌🏻

  • 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.
