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.

Suitability: Excellent for families with children. Part of the trails are accessible by wheelchair and there are also fishing jetties, a lean-to shelter and rental huts that are accessible services.
