So far, we have managed to keep our nature very clean. It is free for everyone to enjoy, but this freedom also comes with responsibilities. The most important principle is that everyone removes their rubbish from nature. Also familiarize yourself with everyman’s rights and the responsibilities they come with! Remember that everyman’s rights are not valid in protected areas.
Please only take what you intend to eat from the buffets at your accommodations and restaurants. This reduces food waste. You can also preserve nature by returning bottles and cans to the grocery-store, since Finland has an easy-to-use bottle recycling system. Nature and your wallet will thank you!
During your stay, you may notice that our waters are flowing wildly, and lakes in the wilderness are clean and numerous. Nevertheless, please use water sparingly. You can also preserve nature by following the instructions of your accommodation regarding ventilation, heating and using the sauna.
And finally, the most important piece of advice:
Enjoy your visit! You are warmly welcome to our clean and safe land of national parks.
