Mobile Phone Coverage
Although Finland has a broad network for mobile phones, there are some areas in the Sallatunturi Areas 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.
There is a vast network of trails in the area. Although the trails are marked in the terrain, hikers should have a good map with them so as not to confuse different route options.
Hikers setting of on longer route should have a knowledge of basic orienteering and survival skills. You should also take into notice that there are significant changes in altitude along many of the trails which adds to their level of demand.
