Rural retreat & Bear Watching
Lodge | 9 bedrooms | sleeps 18
We are now agents for the Wild Brown Bear Company in Finland and are able to arrange bear watching and photography trips to Kuhmo on the Finnish Russian boarder.
The Wild Brown Bear site is located at the site of the old Finnish Russian border. The accommodation rooms are basic, but comfortable and clean, with en-suite shower rooms. Meals are taken in the new purpose built building housing the auditorium, library and dining room. There is also a smoke sauna down by the lake for guests to use. The bear hides are located about 1km from the accommodation.
After your safety briefing you will be provided with you evening snacks and drinks and taken down to the bear hides. If you are lucky the bears, wolverines, foxes and eagles will come to the area. There are about 12 different hides located around the lake and the bears come out of the forest searching the wetland area for the tip bits that have been placed the other side of the lake to encourage the animals into the area. Considering their size the bears just seem to materialise out of the forest it's an amazing sight and well worth the wait.
Trips are available from 01.04 to 30.09
