Everyman's right

In Finland we have so called everyman’s right which applies to anyone living or staying in Finland. It means that everyone can use nature areas (forests, wetlands, lakes and rivers) free of charge regardless of who owns the area.Everyman’s right does not cover private yards and areas, you must also respect a domestic privacy. By using everyman’s right must not cause any disturb for other people, animals or environment.

To but it briefly, you may walk, ski or cycle freely except in other people’s yards and cultivated areas or fields. Temporary camping is allowed in areas accessible under everyman’s right. You can pick up berries, mushrooms and flowers, to angle or ice fish and to use bodies of water for passage and other activities including ice-covered water areas in winter.

Open fires, for example campfire, can not be lit without permission of the landowner. Usually there are marked places for lighting fires in recreation and camping areas. Under forest fire warning, it is forbidden to light open fires in or near a forested area.
