Although Finland has a broad network for mobile phones, there are some areas in the Martimoaapa without signal. There may also be some smaller spots where there is interference. If this happens try to climb to a higher place or go into an open area. It may be worth removing the SIM card from your phone and then trying again to make emergency call. Different phones also differ in their coverage.
We recommend that you keep your mobile phone warm at all times and take along food and drink. Certain phone models do not work when the temperature falls below zero. You should therefore let someone know your planned route. To keep your mobile phone charged, bring along a spare power source, a spare battery or an old phone with a working battery.
Hike and camp without leaving a trace. We recommend you use only marked trails and camping sites.
Sign the guestbook at each campfire site. In the event of an emergency this will make it easier for search and rescue personnel to find you. You can also leave feedback and suggestions in the guestbook. Your input is always welcome.
