Fishing and hunting experiences in Finland

The waters and lands owned by the Finnish state are there for you to use. Metsähallitus ensures that people who would otherwise not have access to wilderness opportunities may also enjoy them. The game and fisheries staff manages hunting, fishing and off-road traffic in state-owned areas on a sustainable basis, and our game and fisheries wardens supervise all wilderness activities on state-owned lands. When you purchase a wilderness permit, you invest in Finnish nature; the proceeds are used to benefit the environment.
