Eastern Finland holidays

Sunset on lake, Eastern Finland

The location for our brown bear watching trips, Kuhmo in East Finland is located near to the Russian border in a region that is home to some fabulous scenery, idyllic villages, wetlands and ancient taiga forests.

This wilderness area provides the perfect habitat for some intriguing wildlife including wolves, wolverines, owls and the majestic brown bear. With opportunities for canoeing, fishing, swimming, walking and purpose-built hides for wildlife viewing, Kuhmo is charming place to kick back and relax during the long days of the Finnish summer. There is easy access via road, rail and air via Kajaani airport.

Lakeland in the south east is dotted with thousands of lakes as well as unspoiled nature and abundant wildlife ideal. Hiking and outdoor activities abound, and being just a stone’s throw away from Russia, there are many reminders of the region’s colourful and fascinating past.
