Hirvasjoen porokämppä - Reindeer herders´ cabin in Hirvas river

Eteläkaakkoon Värriön tutkimusasemalta, noin kolmen kilometrin päässä sijaitsee Hirvasjoen porokämppä. Kämpän seinustalla on kaksi ahkiota, uudempi lasikuituinen ja vanhempi puinen. Ahkioita kutsutaan paikallisessa puheessa myös vetureiksi.

South-east of Varrio research station, about three kilometers away, the skier finds a cabin that the reindeer herders use for their camping. On the front wall of the cabin there are two traditional sledges, one more modern type, made of glass fibre and the other of older design, made of wood. The sledges are used in winter time by skiers, to haul foodstuff and camping equipment to the wilderness.
