Finland has a higher proportion of wetlands than any other country in the world. About a third of the land occupied by swamps. There are about ten words for swamp in Finnish: suo räme, letto, neva, luhta, lähteikkö, aapa, palsa, jänkä and korpi.
Although some people think that swamps are just for wolves, these men beg to differ. Timo Wilderness, a vlogger in Helsinki with an affinity for nudity, recently posted a video of a trip to the swamps with his pals. In case you’re curious what a trip like that would entail, it’s a lot of mud wrestling with very minimal clothing. Some sauna time is also necessary.
