  • The next morning, towards Finland and Saanaa. In kilpisjärvi, we decided that now we are building the source. The route was swarming with people, and the heat of the scorching heat. We got to the top and from there we got some great photos of the Swedish and Norwegian tuntureista.

  • Climb the Saana is not easy as I read in reports. Maybe because it was snowing much and sank into the middle of the leg. Although the rise has been difficult, it was very beautiful! But I don't recommend it to anyone who's not used to exercise or who have some difficulty of locomotion.

  • 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 ;)
