Do you know what everyman's rights are?
Public access rights, or so-called everyman's rights, give everyone in Finland the chance to the recreational use of natural areas freely and without payment. Everyman's rights apply regardless of who owns or occupies an area.
Everyman’s rights allow you, for example, to freely roam in nature, enjoy water activities and pick berries or mushrooms. However, you must not damage the environment or disturb others.
