Shelters/huts in Norway, Sweden, Finnland

Hi there
I´m looking for apps oder websites with information about shelters or huts in Norway, Sweden, Finnland (free, no campings, very simple). There´s a wonderful app for Danemark (https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=dk.shelter.app), I search something similar for the other countries. Do you know something? Thank´s!

As a Finnish I can suggest

As a Finnish I can suggest you going to this site:
http://laavu.org

It's in Finnish language, but I believe downloading gpx files is not a hard task. Those places include some kind of shelter, (laavu in finnish).

make sure you bring a warm

make sure you bring a warm sleeping bag. Summer in Finland is not like Southern Europe. I have been very happy to have my 3 season bag here in Summer. Spring is slowly getting warmer here but been cold one so far. But at least there is snow on the roads now. But you can ice fish were we are ! Welcome to Pieksämäki if heading North. In Finland ( and other Nordic countries ) you also Everymans Right

Hey, I know some time has

Hey, I know some time has past since your request, but do you or does anyone else have any experiences with the dnt-huts and their access by bike? It seems to me as if lots of them are for hikers and way off any real road an membership therefore wouldn't make any sense...
Any ideas or opinion on that? :-)
Thanks in advance!

Huts in Finland

there are many basic huts and shelters in Finland. they are open to all. Some are easy to get to by bike, others are much easier by hiking. Just depends on each hut and where they are. We get a lot of people heading to or coming from Northcape. They tell me Lapland has many shelters as so many people are doing this ride.

I also would suggest looking at http://www.laavu.org/ and https://hikinginfinland.com/2015/03/tulikartta-a-map-of-all-open-shelters-in-finland.html which is in English.

Good look and welcome to Pieksämäki
