The wilderness of Hiidenportti
In Hiidenportti you can relax and feel the nature. The heart of the national park is a rugged gorge, which is, probably one of the main nature attractions in the region. The towering walls are up to 20 m high.
The park is about 100-150 years old, and has pine and spruce forests on its area. The ground is a mosaic of swamp and dry areas of land. The park has its own hiking route, which runs along Kovasinvaara – a former farmhouse area tells the visitors about old time living in the middle of wild nature.
Hiidenportti national park is located 50 km away from Vuokatti. To reach the park follow Kuhmo and Sotkamo signs, taking the Southern road (kanatie 76). From the information centre and the parking area it’s only 1,3 km to the gorge.
