Bear Watching Day Trip in Northern Finland
One of the brightest highlights of Finnish Nature tours is Wildlife Watching! This once in the lifetime adventure is arranged in North-East-Finland from mid April to mid August.
Take your change and join the trip! Starting point to our unforgettable bear watching trip is from your hotel or cabin in Syöte area. Eco-friendly car or bus takes you to Russian border . After approximately two hours driving we arrive to Arola Farm. Bear safaris have been organized in Arola since 1999. Safe and cozy log huts for bear watching and photographing are waiting for you. In early spring we leave to the huts from farm around 4 pm, and from June already from 3 pm. Picnic lunch with sandwiches and hot drinks is served in cabins.
In the lives of brown bears there are a number of events during the summer that give followers new interesting experiences. In the spring, beginning of May, the bears wake up from their winter sleep and start searching for food, getting stronger, and looking for a mate. Mating season is in early June and during the end of the summer the bears start fattening up for the winter. Surprise for photographers there might be lovely playing cubs from the previous summer! At best, as many as 13 different bears have been seen in the area. Also our biggest flying predators, eagles have made their nests in the area. Sometimes, if you are lucky, it is possible to see very rare wolf and wolverine visiting the area!
After the trip it is possible to enjoy very tasty dinner made of local delicacies! Arola farm is also a famous restaurant in area with long experience of making nature based and fresh local food.
