Attractions and destinations
The region of Hossa is an intriguing mixture of wilderness and culture that reflects a borderland’s mindset. The exhibitions of Hossa’s Nature Centre – set to reopen in March 2017 – tell a compelling story of the special characteristics of the area’s nature and culture. In addition to the destinations in the national park, the Winter War Museum Raatteen Portti, which introduces visitors to military history, and a ramble among the Silent People, situated alongside Highway 5, will prove to be worth your while.
Instructions and rules
National parks protect the diversity of Finnish nature while providing hiking, camping and excursion destinations open to everyone. To protect the unique environment, it is important to remember a few exceptions to the public right of access (or “everyman’s right”) when you are visiting Hossa. Camping, for instance, is allowed only in certain parts of the national park. Before the rules of the future national park are formalised, the rules of the existing camping area apply.
