- We had a wonderful weekend in Finland. The sight of a bear stepping out of the woods onto the marsh is a memory I will not forget. It is a great privilege to be able to share the earth with these magnificent beautiful beasts. I was very glad that we decided to spend a second night in the hide. The Bears were the main highlight and the wolverine put on a good show on the second night.
Other highlights include breathing the clean air, the scenery, walking in the border zone, cooking sausages over a fire, smoke sauna and swimming in the lake.
Sabrina (our guide) looked after us very well, she is very knowledgeable about the area and the animals.
The accommodation was simple and clean, adequate for the trip. The beds were surprisingly comfortable.
I would recommend this trip for anyone who would like to see bears in their own habitat. But bear in mind that they are wild animals and have their own plans. We had three sightings each night and I was thrilled with this.
I loved this trip. I am still zinging from the experience.
