Great news! Over 11K Finnish lakes have been added and updated in our cartography.

Finland is popular among boaters and sailors for its stunning nature spanning from north to south and the Järvi-Suomi region (Lake District). Anglers and fishers all over Europe also take an interest in these areas due to the numerous pikes and perches that populate Finland’s extensive water network. Many love casting for brown trout and whitefish in Lake Päijänne or ice fishing during the cold season. Lake Lohjanjärvi, in the south west part of the country, is famous for its large population of zander and its hummus rich waters; it is home to more than 30 different species of fish.

With our cartography you’re sure to make the most of your experience on the water.
