Unforgettable Bear Night

from 150 €
The King of the Finnish forest is a Brown Bear. These majestic animals roam freely in the forest. You'll have a first-class opportunity to follow their life from just a few meters' distance.
Experience the unforgettable bear night. You will spend a night in a wooden hide accompanied with an expert guide. Together you will follow the life of wild brown bears living in these forests. Usually in one night you can see and photograph several bears. If you are lucky you can also see the playful bear cubs.

The excursion will start at four o'clock pm. We will leave from the Martinselkonen Wilds Centre (Pirttivaarantie 131, Suomussalmi) by company cars. After a short drive we will walk 1,5 km in a forest trail to the wooden hide that seats for 12 or 9 persons. We will spend the night at the hide watching and photographing bears. In the morning after 7 o'clock we'll return to the Centre the same way as upon arrival.
