"Varjoon - suojaan" ("To shadow - to safety") was the Finnish entry in the Eurovision Song Contest 1967, performed in Finnish by Fredi.

The song was performed eighth on the night, following Sweden's Östen Warnerbring with "Som en dröm" and preceding Germany's Inge Brück with "Anouschka". At the close of voting, it had received 3 points, placing 12th in a field of 17.

The song is about Fredi's desire to escape from the hustle and bustle of life, to the shadow of anonymity. He remarks that he knows it will be lonely there, but that he feels that he will be happier regardless.

It was succeeded as Finnish representative at the 1968 Contest by Kristina Hautala with "Kun kello käy". Fredi returned to the Contest in 1976 with the song "Pump-Pump".
