In order for everyone to enjoy nature, we need to take care of nature and wildlife and show consideration for landowners and others who are outdoors. We can sum this up with the phrase ”Don´t disturb – don´t destroy”.

The right of public access applies both on land and water. You may swim by the shore, boat almost everywhere, moor your boat and spend a day or two on board. Do not moor your boat or go ashore by a dwelling or where there is no admittance. Do not paddle close to birds or animals to photograph or to approach them. If you have to carry or pull a canoe between waterways, do not cross people´s plots or fields.

Fire bans are common during the summer when the risk of forest fires is great. At such times you must not light upp a fire, not even in campsite fireplaces. At tourist offices and canoe rental outlets you may find out if fire bans are in effect. Even if they are not, there might be a fire risk. If the fire spreads, call the fire brigade on the emergency services number 112.
