Wild Finland

From £1449 for 6 days
Trip Overview
As if impatient from the tortuously cold winter months, far Eastern Finland emerges from hibernation in full bloom, its fauna keen to redress the balance. Delve into the wilderness to unravel and illuminate its remarkable wildlife, watching eagerly from a hide for the arrival of Brown bears. Bears aren't the only highlight as we get to experience the Finnish wilderness of Oulanka National Park, with its whitewater rivers, spruce forest and scotch pine. Nature rafting and a husky walk are also part of the adventure.

Itinerary & Notes
Land only clients should make their own way to Basecamp Oulanka this afternoon/evening. Set on the edge of the spectacular Oulanka National Park, Basecamp Oulanka is a complex of wooden buildings providing cosy accommodation in a stunning wilderness setting overlooking Juuma Lake - surround yourself completely in nature for the next five nights! After a warming dinner you'll have the chance to settle into your wilderness home in the forest. Take a late evening walk down to the lake and marvel at the stillness. During the summer months there can be between 18 - 22 hours of daylight which ensures a colourful sky with drawn out sunsets and sunrises merging together. *Basecamp Oulanka *

Brilliant and well organised trip - seeing bears & cubs was a real highlight, and the accommodation was great. you can do as much (or little) as you like during the free time - go for a swim in the lake, go trekking, canoeing, or just relax and enjoy the scenery. Food was nice and all locally sourced.
