Wildlife Triangle

Watch and photograph Finland’s Big Three

In the vast, unspoilt wilderness of Eastern Finland, there are exciting opportunities to see bears, wolves and - less well known but equally stunning - wolverines. Although they resemble a small bear, wolverines are actually the largest member of the weasel family.
This is a rare chance to observe these magnificent carnivores in their natural environment, without disturbing them. You can observe these beautiful creatures from the safety of purpose-built cabins designed to blend into their surroundings, watching them eat, hunt and go about their daily lives. You’ll also see a variety of other wild birds and mammals. These stunning forests are largely untouched by man; enjoy the silence and make the most of the unique opportunities to photograph Finland’s big three.

Day 1

We head to the hide
In the afternoon, we will enter a hide and spend the night observing and photographing wolverines, bears, foxes, eagles and beavers. The wolverine is the largest animal in the weasel family; they are scavengers and quite rare.
The Finnish name for wolverine is Ahma, which means gobble in Finnish. The creature’s name comes from its eating habits.
Day 2

We head to the hide
After spending the night observing wildlife, there’s time to catch up on your sleep after breakfast.

Accommodation is provided in an old guard station close to Finland’s border with Russia. The hides are located on the border between Finland and Russia. In the afternoon, we will enter the hide and spend the evening watching bears. If we’re lucky, we will also see wolves and wolverines.

Bears are the biggest carnivores in the Europe. The largest males weigh as much as 400 kilogrammes. Bears are omnivores, but eat lots of vegetables and berries. They spend the winter months hibernating.
