The vast taiga forest of Finland are still home to sizeable numbers of brown bears. Heading deep into the forest to specially prepared observation hides, the organisers aim to spot this amazing animal in its natural habitat during this exciting long weekend. You’l travel east towards the Russian border. The proximity of this area to the Arctic Circle, with resultant long hours of daylight increases the chances of viewing these predominantly nocturnal animals. Our isolated hides, located in a small open wetland area, have been adapted to maximize the chances of spotting bears, whilst balancing the needs for a level of comfort. As well as bears, sightings of elk, fox and wolverines are also possible. Trips are accompanied by a local naturalist guide.
