About
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!

Nice hike of 3-4 hours on a clear sunny day. Weather conditions may change quickly so pack up. 🙂 Wear good shoes and enjoy the amazing views.

To go up on the sacred mountain of the Sami people it’s an easy and pleasant hike with pretty nice views over Kilpisjarvi, surrounding lakes, Malla district etc.
Suitable for adults and kids as well, you will find some nice spots for a picnic, a coffee or just to relax for a bit.

Don't forget a little rest at the fireplace in the cosy cottage. The paths are excellent marked. There are also some information boards

This hike suits all types of hikers as the terrain is not challenging and the trail can be super easily followed all the way up to the top. The signs within short distances guide the way and the trail is in a great condition. I did this hike on a cloudy august day. It took an hour to get to the top without long breaks and with moderate speed. The views were stunning regardless of some foggy weather!

One of the best views in Finland, with sweeping vistas across the border to Norway and Sweden. Quite steep ascent to makes sense to take your time and be well prepared for breaks and any inclement weather.

Unforgettable views on the way up and down, and on the top. Leaving early in the morning (6:30) was a wise decision on a hot summer day, even earlier start next time. Saana is stunning.

Hiking up took ~80min with breaks and taking pictures of the scenery. Great day for hiking (~20C). Tracks was recently renewed and it was easy to follow the trail. Scenery was beautiful and took in total 2h 30min.

Number one thing to do in Kilpisjärvi. I can recommend both summer and winter climbs. Just remember to face the weather (seasonal, but it will be/feel colder up there) and wind (throughout the year).

Hike itself is not too long or difficult if you are in a "decent" shape. However, with small children or elderly people one should re-concider or at least prepare to spend more time for the climb.

The trail begins from a parking slot of Malla naturalpark. The trail was in very good condition for about the first couple of kilometers. From there the rest of the route was a gently sloping rocky "path". The "path" was marked with black sticks but basically you could walk where ever on the top of Saana. This phase of the climb seemed to be never ending but the hike was totally worth the scenery at the top of Saana.

It’s 4km one way so it takes about 2.5 hours to hike up to the peak. Downward will only take about 1.5 hours. At some point, it’s a pretty rough climb but amateur hikers can easily go up with patience. We saw many kids and dogs go all the way up.
It’s really cold and windy at the top so better take some jacket with you.
