Overview

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!

Saana is one of the most famous and beautiful mountains of Finland. It's definitely worth a visit and if you're able to, I suggest you climb it as well.

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!
