  • 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.

  • The source of the problem, but it really is worth, if fitness allows. The climb is steep, and in places the time any steps at the moment. But the views of the top and on the way to the top of the are, in a Word, great, but they need to see for yourself to understand that they really are breathtaking. Ladies Shoes and accessories important, atop the wind blows!

  • 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.
