What does “gaissa” mean?

“Gaissa” means a high mountain or fell that has snow on the top around the year. Like many Finnish words describing specific features of nature, the word gaissa originates from the Sami language. Gaissa is a rare sight in Finland. One must travel all the way to Kilpisjärvi in north-western Lapland in order to see one. Right next to the village lies Saana. 50-60 km from Kilpisjärvi, in the middle of the wilderness close to the Norwegian border you’ll find the highest mountains of Finland Halti and Ridnitšohkka. On the slopes of Ridnitšohkka lies the only glacier of Finland. Also Halti and Saana can still have snow on the top in July.

Mountain tops are reindeer’s favourite place in the summer. They gather in herds close to cooling snow on windy mountain tops in order to get away from gadflies.
