Basic hiking

On the opposite side of the year from February is August, which is a very good month for hiking in Finland. Let's see some hiking and paddling in two national parks.


Everyman’s Rights

In Finland you are allowed to go wherever you want in forests, fells, bogs and so on. You may swim, paddle or row a boat in every lake and river. You can pitch your tent almost wherever you wish. It does not matter who owns the land, the right to walk, ski, paddle, or camp is for everyone.
