“Nice hike, great view”
Jyppyra hill rises about 400 metres above sea level next to the village of Hetta. Our ancestors used to worship the spirits of the hill to guarantee a good hunt. A marked trail leads you from the Fell Lapland Nature Center to the top. Along the way...more

With 360 degrees views up to the Norwegian border (with clear weather), this is one of the best spots in and around Hetta to watch the Northern Lights in winter. A short hike through the forest of about 10-20 minutes (that can be done without...More

This is a nice short hike, if you are at the cultural centre. Very easy - well maybe a little bit steep if you're not very fit - otherwise accessible for all. Unfortunately it was snowing heavily so I wasn't able to enjoy the view,...More

I used snowshoes and followed the signposted trail to the summit hut with two young ladies and it took around 1.5 hours from the centre of town. Well worth a visit.

Worth the walk up from the centre to experience amazing views and hopefully a spectacular sunset. We considered returning to try and view Aurora, but the forecast wasn't good so we didn't. Worth carrying a few logs up to the lavu to light the fire!

It's just a short walk approximately 2 kilometers. At the top you have a nice view. And there is also a shelter with a place to make a fire, so don't forget to bring your sausages.
