Nature in Finland
Helsinki has an archipelago of more than 330 islands and most of them are in a wild state. You can find nature just a few steps from the city center. In fact even our President lives on a wild island called Seurasaari, which is also an open air museum!
You will have the possibility to ski, skate, cycle and walk on the sea or our frozen lakes in the winter! In other seasons, you can take adventage of living close to the sea and nature and for example pick some mushrooms and berries in the forrest. In Finland we also have many wild animals like our national brown bear "Karhu" in Finnish which is also a the name of the popular beer made by Koff! It is said that you have to drink 10 of those to feel as strong as a bear. Finns are said to drink 10 in an hour!
In Finland there is a legal concept called Every Man's right when it comes to enjoying Finnish nature. You can pick mushrooms and berries anywhere as long as you don't damage the environment or disturb others. There is room to roam for everyone in a country of 338 000 km2 with only 5,6 million inhabitants.
