According to an old Finnish legend a demon called Hiisi fled to the peaceful and quiet setting of Hiidenportti. You can do the same: escape from the hustle and bustle of everyday life. In Hiidenportti National Park you can find peace in the middle of nature and see backwoods, which are typical of the area. The heart of Hiidenportti National Park is the majestic Hiidenportti Gorge, which is the most notable nature attraction in Kainuu Region.

Hiidenportti National Park was established to preserve the Kainuu Region’s wilderness. A mosaic mix of mires and dry forests is typical landscape in this National Park.
