Product Description

Calazo Urho Kekkonen National Park

Calazo is a Swedish map and guidebook publisher that produces hiking maps for different regions around the world, including Finland. Urho Kekkonen National Park is a popular hiking destination located in northern Finland, and Calazo has produced a hiking map for this park at a scale of 1:50,000. This map is designed to help hikers navigate the park’s trails and terrain, and it includes information on hiking routes, topography, and other features of interest in the park.

The maps are made of Tyvek material, which is a water-resistant and tear-resistant material that is also lighter than paper. This makes the maps ideal for outdoor use, as they can be easily folded, stuffed in a pocket, or stored in a backpack without the need for additional protection from rain or moisture. The Tyvek material also ensures that the map is durable and can withstand the wear and tear of outdoor use, making it a reliable and long-lasting resource for hikers and outdoor enthusiasts.

Reviews

Calazo

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.
