Iivaara fell is a distant, quiet, magical place far away from everything. The name Iivaara means dark (Ii) + fell (vaara). It is the highest fell in southern Kuusamo and from the summit you can see all the way to the horizon. Sit under silent snowy spruce trees and taste some snow, see the fells of Russia in the east and listen to the arctic silence. This used to be the southern border of Sápmi (Sámi) land and when you see the landscape, you'll understand why.
