  1. Evolving in space and nature
  2. Lack of shame or spontaneity?
  3. Confrontation with nature

To begin, we have to underline that the point that will be developed here is that Finnish people are strongly connected with nature. First of all, more than a quarter of the country is northern than the polar circle: Finland is the most septentrional country in Europe Then, Finland is known as the land of the'' thousands lakes '', but in reality the number is even higher: there are 187 888 lakes approximately in Finland. If you add to this the fact forests cover three quarters of the country's surface area of 338000 sq. km, you understand why the fins have a lot of empty spaces accessible. They can easily remain alone for some days and feel completely free in deep nature. Finland has 5 M inhabitants and has an average population density of 17 inhabitants per square kilometre. That makes it, after Norway and Iceland, the most sparsely populated country in Europe. To compare we can say that if France had the same population density there would be less than 2 millions of inhabitants in the whole country. In Lapland, there are only two inhabitants per square kilometre. We have now, one of the main particularities of Finnish bodies: they are often and easily alone. They can feel around them a space of independence, where they are only in contact with nature.
