Hiidenportti National Park

14/5/2019
In Hiidenportti, please, note that the stairs leading down to the valley near the Porttilampi lean-to shelter have been removed because of their bad condition. However, it is possible to follow the trail keeping in mind that it is a little more demanding. The stairs and duckboards in some other places are also in bad condition. They will be repaired in 2020.

Along the path leading to the main gorge you can experience shady spruce forest, a flowery meadow and woodland that used to be cleared periodically by slash-and-burn farmers.
