Welcome to enjoy the peaceful atmosphere and amazing scenery of the Hossa National Park!
On top of being a great wilderness area, Hossa National Park also has a colourful cultural history. The pre-historic rock paintings of Värikallio are a popular hiking destination. The beautiful eskers, clean waterways, easily accessible pine forests and well-marked hiking and cross country skiing tracks invite you to explore the nature! Wilderness huts and lean-to shelters with maintained fireplaces offer hikers a comfortable place for a well-deserved rest. The Hossa National Park is well-maintained and safe for even the smallest members of your family. Some areas are also wheel chair accessible.
ACTIVITIES ALL YEAR ROUND
The beautifully rugged winter landscape invites you to explore the surrounding areas by snowshoes, cross country ski's, Fat bike or backcountry ski's. Why not try out ice fishing - a locally popular way of fishing in the winter time! You can easily start your day trips on the frozen lake from our beach. Backcountry ski's are excellent for moving even in deeper snow, and it's quite fun to ski down an esker as well! On clear nights you can marvel the starry sky and Northern lights without any light pollution. You can read more about the winter in Hossan Lumo from this blog post by Fall into Finland!
Once the spring comes and the lakes and rivers thaw, it's time to move from land to water. On a canoeing trip you can sense the wilderness on a different level and from a SUP-board you can admire the peaceful lake scenery from higher up. Hossa is also known to be a fisherman’s paradise. You can catch trout, rainbow trout, grayling and pike among many other species from our clear-watered lakes and rapids. The area offers a great variety of well-maintained hiking and mountain biking trails.
Autumn is great time for hiking and picking berries and mushrooms. Finland's everyman's right to nature allows you to do so freely. We are happy to advise you more about this!
