Hossa National Park opening

The 40th National Park in Finland - Hossa - will be officially opened on June 17th 2017 as part of the Finland's centennial celebrations.

Hossa is a paradise for anyone keen to go fishing or canoeing in natural waters surrounded by wild green forests. Hossa has a wide variety of trails: you can walk in the footsteps of Finland's Stone Age settlers, who made mysterious shamanistic paintings on the cliffs at Värikallio thousands of years ago. Hossa area will officially become the 40th Finnish National Park in the middle of Juna 2017. Part of Hossa National Park will be in Kuusamo in Julma Ölkky canyon lake area.
