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.

The terms of purchase and cancellation for permits issued by Metsähallitus will be applied in a modified flexible manner for the time being due to the coronavirus epidemic. This situation is considered a force majeure as specified in our terms and conditions, which means that permits can be cancelled before the permit period begins.
In order to slow down the spread of the coronavirus, bookings for reservable and rental huts handled by Metsähallitus Parks & Wildlife Finland will be cancelled as of 21 March 2020.
Metsähallitus will close its nature centres, visitor centres and service points, as well as Science Centre Pilke for the time being to prevent the spread of coronavirus. Matters related to permits are handled in Eräluvat web store and from our service number + 358 20 69 2424.
