Routes and hiking trails
The outdoor recreation areas maintained by the state are areas designed for outdoor pursuits and invigorating experiences in nature. These areas have everything that is needed for outdoor excursions from marked trails to campfire spots, lean-to shelters and wilderness cabins. Whether you are looking to take a day trip excursion or longer hikes, these areas cater to your demands.
Lapland has two recreational areas: Arctic Circle and Inari. These regions are not official recreational areas, but are founded on the basis of resolutions made by Metsähallitus (formerly the Finnish Forest & Park Service). However, these areas have services that correspond to official recreational areas.
