Allemansrätten – Freedom to roam

One of the best thing with Scandinavia and Lapland is that we have something called “Allemansrätten” or Freedom to roam. When you go along the Arctic Canoe Route you have Sweden on one side of the river and Finland on the other this means that we are allowed to go a shore wherever we want and put up our camp. Allemansrätten also gives us the permission to pick berries och mushrooms. All of this gives us of course also the responsibilty to take care of the nature, animals and peopel working in it so the next person that comes to the area can have the same wounderful experience of a untouched nature that Lapland gives.
