From Forestry to Hiking

The first fellings in Hossa started approximately one hundred years ago. At first, they only cut the best timber trees by the water routes. There were no roads, so the logs had to be floated. From the 1930s onwards, logging employed a large number of people. The logging sites were large, particularly in the 1950s. Most of the preserved log-floating structures in Hossa date from this period. At the time, they also decided not to fell any trees on the shores. Hiking and recreational activities increased in the area. Many of the loggers’ cabins have been pulled down, others have decayed., but some of them have been renovated into rental huts and open wilderness huts.
