In the village of Hetta, at the foot of Jyppyrä Hill, there is an old chain of wild reindeer pitfalls. You can learn about ancient wild reindeer hunting methods on the two-kilometre nature trail.

The remains of the pitfalls are protected by the Antiquities Act. As the vegetation covering the pitfalls is extremely fragile, visitors must stay on the trail. The trail is marked with a guide fence and cloven hoof prints of the reindeer figures along the way.
