Wildlife Trips in Finland

Finland is the most sparsely populated country in Europe, which has given the wildlife the opportunity to thrive. The country is made up of thousands of lakes and islands, flat fenlands, mountains and taiga forest, and is home to 60 native mammals and over 245 bird species.

The star wildlife attraction is undoubtedly the European brown bear followed closely by the rare lynx. You can also see wolverines, wolves, elk, reindeer, Siberian tits, and great grey and eagle owls.
