Finnish National Parks

All parks have well-marked nature trails and signs. Most of them have campsites and cottages which you can rent. Some of the national parks have unlocked wilderness cabins which are open to anyone. You only need to respect the unwritten rules: clean after yourself and leave the place as it was when you arrived. Although our national parks are safe to walk, we recommend staying on the marked routes – for your own safety and to protect our beautiful nature.
