TAKE THE SUSTAINABLE FINLAND PLEDGE
By taking the Sustainable Finland Pledge you make a promise to respect and treasure the Finnish nature, its inhabitants and culture during your visit.
RESPONSIBLE TRAVEL – IN NATURE
Responsible travel means that everyone strolling in the nature should care for the environment and act responsible. In Finland we are allowed to stroll in the nature according to the Everyman’s Rights and therefore as well some serious responsibilities for the environment. Read about Everyman’s Rights and Responsibilities from NATIONALPARKS.FI -page and feel free to enjoy and revive in our nature. You will as well notice that conservated areas, like national parks and nature reserves have special rules and regulations how to behave and act.
Keep nature clean – a responsible nature stroller leaves only traces of boots on trails, skis and poles on snow behind. The nature stroller carries everything back, he carried with him. Have you heard about plogging? You can even pick trash left by others while jogging or just because trash don’t belong in nature.
Please, check out the OUTDOOR ETIQUETTE before strolling out!
