You can stay in these amazing outdoor huts in northern Finland for no cost at all. These open wilderness huts are managed by Metsähallitus.

They allow travelers to stay one night for free. Finnish law, "Everyman's right" allows people of all nationalities the right to travel the countryside of Finland with out any discrimination. Visitors can freely travel and enjoy their stay as long as they respect the land and community.

OSTBY, SWEDEN: A display of Aurora Borealis, northern lights, in Ostby, 19 August 2006. The northern lights occur in a circular band around the geomagnetic north pole, otherwise known as the northern lights oval. It is a result of the atmosphere shielding the earth against solar particles which would otherwise make the planet uninhabitable. On their way down towards the geomagnetic poles, the solar particles are stopped by Earth's atmosphere, which acts as an effective shield against these deadly particles. When the solar particles are stopped by the atmosphere, they collide with the atmospheric gases present, and the collision energy between the solar particle and the gas molecule is emitted as a photon - a light particle. And when you have many such collisions, you have an aurora - lights that may seem to move across the sky. AFP PHOTO / SVEN NACKSTRAND (Photo credit should read SVEN NACKSTRAND/AFP/Getty Images)

387304 01: UNDATED FILE PHOTO: Aurora Australis, the Southern Lights as seen from South Australia as with Aurora Borealis, are displayed during strong geomagnetic events. According to NASA March 29, 2001 the sun recently sent a powerful energy burst in the direction of Earth triggering dazzling aurora displays over nighttime skies on Friday and Saturday, NASA astronomers said. Directed toward Earth, such blasts can distort Earth's magnetic field, producing in extreme latitudes, colorful nocturnal sky displays known as auroras, or the Northern and Southern Lights.
