Calazo Levi Ylläs
The most popular tourist destinations in Lapland are surrounded by a large network of trails excellent for hiking, trail running, skiing, and mountain biking. The new mountain biking route connects the towns of Levi, Aakenus, and Ylläs. The challenging route includes ascents, descents, and stunning scenery. The map is printed on the high-quality Tyvek material, which is both waterproof and tear-resistant. So you don’t have to protect your map from rain, and it won’t tear while in use. The manufacturer guarantees that the material will resist 20,000 folds.
Calazo is a publishing company founded by two enthusiastic hikers who embarked on their journey by creating a guidebook for downhill skiing destinations in Sweden called “Svenska Topturer” in 2004. This endeavor’s success led to the publication of “Stockholms Friluftsliv,” a guidebook for Stockholm’s excursion destinations. Encouraged by public interest and media recognition, they transitioned from their regular jobs to pursue publishing hiking books, eventually expanding their team to include writers, artists, and cartographers.
Specializing in camping and route guides initially, Calazo identified the need for more durable maps for outdoor enthusiasts. Since 2010, they have been producing maps made from Tyvek material known for its water and tear resistance. Their meticulous map development process includes data from various sources such as Metsähallitus Nature Services, aerial and satellite images, laser scanning data, and trail network information, often collaborating with experts like Professor Peter Jansson from Stockholm University. Beyond maps, their portfolio includes sports guides for activities like climbing, kayaking, and excursion skating, as well as route guides for popular European hiking destinations. They also offer educational books covering topics such as food drying, first aid, and alpine plants to aid hikers in developing their skills and knowledge.
