Owner description: 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 you can explore the cultural history of Jyppyra and from the top you can admire the Pallas- Ounastunturi fell chain.

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.

The Jyppyrä lookout point is situated only 800 meters from Fell Lapland Visitor Centre. So it is very easily achievable with a short and very easy hike. The trail is marked with orange marks in which you can see a yellow sun. The total length from the visitor center to Jyppyrä and back is 1.8 kilometers.

Jyppyrä isn't a real fell. Fells (tunturi in Finnish) are so high Lappish hills or mountains that there aren't trees on peaks. Jyppyrä is a vaara. It is a Finnish word for lower hills with trees on peaks. However, you can see an extremely beautiful fell and wilderness views from Jyppyrä, which is situated 120 meters above Lake Ounasjärvi. At clear weather you may even see Halti, the highest peak of Finland, which is located 140 kilometers from here.

There is a partly open Lapp hut with a campfire at Jyppyrä. You may use the campfire free. Firewood is available there but you need own matchsticks.

We loved this place. It was so beautiful everywhere. I highly recommend Jyppyrä if you want to see the wonderful scenery easily.
