The waters and lands owned by the Finnish state are there for you to use. The game and fisheries staff of Parks & Wildlife Finland organises all hunting, fishing and off-road traffic in state-owned areas on a sustainable basis. When you purchase a wilderness permit, you invest in Finnish nature; the proceeds are used to benefit the environment. Our job is to ensure that people who would otherwise not have access to wilderness opportunities may also enjoy them. Our wilderness inspectors supervise all wilderness activities on state-owned lands.
