What's Currently Happening in Kuhmo Visitor Centre Petola

Hiidenportti National Park welcomes you also in winter 

(Updated 7.12.2021) 
Reaching Hiidenportti National Park is a lot easier also in winter time now that the road Hiidenportintie leading to the main information point of the national park will be ploughed also this winter. 

However, you should be aware of sudden snow falls. It will take time before the ploughers get to these remote roads.
