Looking for GPX file with gas stations and campsites

Post by TravelToy » Fri May 11, 2018 6:19 am

Does anyone know where I can find a GPX file with campsites and gas stations along the Finland TET or for Finland in general ?

Campsites: http://archiescampings.eu

Gas is a bit more complicated. Aren't those already on the map of your satnav? If you edit the track in basecamp you can find the poi's and make waypoints of them.

There is site called laavu.org where you can find gpx files for kind of bivouac shelters. Site is unfortunately in finish only

Finnish Campingsite Association official page https://www.camping.fi/tmp_etusivu.asp? ... g=3&s=1357

this one similar to laavu.org: https://retkipaikka.fi/palvelut-kartalla/
and some POIs from the same site https://retkipaikka.fi/kohteitakartalla/

edit: could not find GPX downloads in there, but I hope they help at least a bit.

You can get gpx (and other formats) of most campsites in europe.

This URL has a lot of POIs which can be dowloaded as GPX files or a lot of different formats.
What i do is to mix it in Basecamp with a track in order to have it with gas stations as i don't use a garmin; if you do you can use as Pois.

I also have huts of nordic countries (about 3.800) in GPX format; PM me if you need it.

Hi,

Next June we will (2) be driving from Belgium to the Nordkapp. Going North we will drive TET Finland.
Is it necessary to take a tent with us or can we use the laavu and other huts located near the trail ?
If so, we can do it with only sleeping bag and sleeping mat....

Thanks for your reactions and have a safe and adventurous 2019 !

Hi,

I suggest you take the tent also since sometimes (very rarely but possible) the huts can be occupied and then you will need to find another place if you don't have tent.
