The Hossa National Park is the nexus of three waterways. In addition to running waters, the pine-covered esker landscape is dotted by dozens of glittering, clear lakes and ponds. For anglers, Hossa’s waters offer plenty of alternatives.

There are naturally high stocks of perch and whitefish in Hossa. In addition to this, the chances of making catches is improved by stocking waters with trout, grayling and rainbow trout. Good feeding conditions allow the fish to thrive and grow large in Hossa’s waters. There are marked trails to the fishing grounds, and several campfire sites, lean-to shelters, wilderness and rental huts are located nearby.

The Hossa Visitor Centre provides you with tips and advice on fishing. You can pick up maps of the area, obtain the necessary fishing permits and rent boats at the Visitor Centre. There is also a café restaurant on the premises. Visitors wanting to stay overnight will find a wide range of accomodations throughout the Hossa area.
