national parks – all free for you
There are 40 national parks scattered across Finland, each with its own unique and pristine nature, where you may explore freely, with the exception of some restricted areas. All parks have well-marked nature trails and signage. Most have campsites, rentable cottages and, in the spirit of Everyman’s Rights, unlocked wilderness cabins which are open to anyone – as long as you respect the unwritten rules: clean after yourself, keep things tidy and replace what you use (e.g. chopped firewood). Wilderness huts are not for commercial use, and the bed is always to be offered for the one arriving last.
