Mobile Phone Coverage
Although Finland has a broad network for mobile phones, there are some areas in the area 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.
When the ground is not frozen hikers following the Pääjärvi Recreation Area Trail can manage with light footwear such as trainers. Marked trails for the most part lead across varying forest landscape and along duckboards. After heavy rains the trails may be wet in the more mire-like portions of the area.
