  • On my journey I pledge to be like a Finn,
    and by this, I mean slowing down from within.

  • The wilderness lets me relax and connect,
    I promise to treat it with the utmost respect.

  • Its forests and lakes should remain plastic-free,
    so I will not leave any rubbish behind me.

  • The world-class tap water shall quench my thirst,
    because in my choices the climate comes first.

  • In Finland it’s our equal right to roam free.
    This right should be enjoyed responsibly.

  • The berries and mushrooms are there to be eaten,
    but I’ll stick to the paths that are already beaten.

  • Long before humans the wildlife’s been there,
    so I won’t set up camp just anywhere.

  • I shall also respect the lives of locals,
    and will be considerate with cameras or loud vocals.

  • I know Finns can seem just a little reserved,
    but with this pledge their trust will surely be earned.
