High five for staying healthy when enjoying the outdoors

Going to nature is always a good idea. Make sure, though, that you don’t put anybody in danger these exceptional times and plan your trip ahead.

This high five helps you to remember all that is important to stay and keep others healthy!

 

  • Keep distance from others at all places. In nature there is space for everyone but remember to keep two meters distance also by a fireplace or in a bird watch tower.
  • Make sure you don’t need a fireplace! Pack a ready-made meal in your backpack. You can then enjoy it whenever you spot a beautiful place to sit down - at a distance from others.
  • Avoid places that are popular even at normal times; now they are packed. Instead, explore the nature close to you or visit a place more unknown. There is plenty of choice!
  • Mind the hand hygiene.
  • During a fire warning it is forbidden to lit up an open fire. Check the actual warnings at Finnish meteorological institute: https://en.ilmatieteenlaitos.fi/warnings

Check for Warnings

When forest and grass fire warnings (en.ilmatieteenlaitos.fi) are in effect, fire is only allowed at covered campfire sites that have a flue. A fire can be also lit in fireplaces at wilderness and other huts. Always use extreme caution when handling fire. The one who lights a fire is always responsible for its safe use. Please note, that making fire at these campfire sites can be banned locally.
