Unique public access rights allow anyone to pick
bilberries freely

Finland’s unique public right of access, known as Everyman’s rights, means everyone has the right to roam freely around the countryside. Tourists may also pick bilberries from privately owned land without the landowners’ permission. It is not however permitted to cause damage to the surroundings or to litter. It is also not allowed to roam too closely to yards or people’s homes. Further information about Everyman’s rights can be found by clicking the following link:
