Hiidenportti National Park invites also in winter

(Updated 14.2.2024)
Reaching the Hiidenportti National Park is easy also in winter time. The road Hiidenportintie leading to the main information point of the national park is ploughed. However, you should be aware of sudden snow falls. It will take time before the ploughers get to these remote roads. 

There are no maintained routes in Hiidenportti, but very often there appears a path from the Palolampi information point to the Hiidenportti gorge. Snowshoes or glideshoes are recommended.
