Brown Bears
There are a number of possibilities for watching brown bears in Finland.

Brown bear watching in Finland. Observe European Brown Bears. Sparsely populated Eastern Finland is an untamed expanse of pristine natural beauty. The vast, dense taiga forest, interspersed with lakes and rivers, offers a haven to the elusive European brown bear. Heading deep into the forest to specially prepared observation hides, we aim to spot this amazing animal in its natural habitat during this exciting long weekend.

Bear watching in Finland – trip report (The Independent)

“Exciting four-day tour, running throughout Finland’s high summer months, provides a three-night stay at a wonderful Wilderness Centre, lying in a quiet taiga forest along the Russian border. Here, you have the option of spending one or two nights in a specially constructed log cabin that has been designed as a bear hide.” Finland – A Wildlife Photography Tour Naturetrek
