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.
Eräluvat.fi web service offers you fishing, hunting and off-road traffic permits for state-owned areas. You can also pay the national fisheries management fee.
As of Tuesday 2 May 2023 at 12 noon, the public can book reservable huts and rental huts maintained by Metsähallitus Parks & Wildlife Finland for 2024. Reservations can be made in the Eräluvat webshop. A small proportion of the huts can be booked at the local nature centre or through our partners.
Maintenance work will be carried out in the Eräluvat.fi website and webshop on Tuesday 4 April, starting at 6:00 AM. During this time, you won’t be able to visit the site or make purchases in the webshop or via Eräluvat customer service or mobile application. The maintenance break will take approximately four hours.
