Economic Benefits of Outdoor Recreation
For travellers, the nature of Finland is a source of well-being for body and mind. for local entrepreneurs, it is also a source of economic well-being through tourism.
The indirect economic benefits of outdoor recreation in Finnish nature are significant. One euro invested by the government in national park services or nature centres yields an average of ten euros for the local economy.
The financial input of hunters and fishermen in the local economy is also considerable. The benefits for regional economies are highest in Eastern and Northern Finland.
