Hossa Visitor Centre

The aftermath of the storm has been cleared in Hossa. All hiking trails are open and work is continuing when clearing individual trees off the trails. There are still fallen trees on the Sininen saavutus MTB Trail, but it is driveable also. The situation may change as more information becomes available.

Welcome to Hossa Visitor Centre

Hossa Visitor Centre is a hiker's heaven that provides the latest tips and instructions on hiking and fishing. At the visitor centre, you can buy maps of the area and the necessary permits, hire a boat or canoe and enjoy the delicacies at the café. At the Ståhlberg's meeting room, you can study the Värikallio rock paintings in advance before going to see them for real.
