Hossa-Kylmäluoma Outdoor Centers
Located in the village of Ruhtinansalmi in Suomussalmi, Kainuu region. The landscape of Hossa was already enjoyed during the Stone Age. The easy to traverse ridges contain ample amounts of wild game and the clear waters are full of fish. For millennia, Hossa has held a special significance as an intersection for waterways and an area of wilderness. This is proven by, among other things, the 4 500-year-old paintings on display at Värikallio.
The ridges and other attractions of Hossa are still admired by both Finnish and international visitors. The popular hiking area was appointed a national park in honour of the centenary of Finland. Kylmäluoma region remains popular among fishing enthusiasts. The first hiking area in Finland was made in 1979, at the same time with Hossa.
