The magnificent wilderness of Hossa is an excellent destination: the trails running along pine heaths invite you to hike and cycle, and the crystal-clear lakes to go canoeing and fishing. The rock paintings of Julma-Ölkky and Värikallio depict stories of shamanism, dating back thousands of years.
Hossa is Finland's 40th national park.
It was opened 17th June 2017 to celebrate Finland's centenary of independence.
