We stayed at the lodge for four nights and spent three of them in the photographic hides. Don't expect luxury accommodation at the lodge as the rooms are very basic and only some of them have en-suite, but the rooms are clean and the beds are exceptionally comfortable. The food is simple home cooking. This place is all about the... More

Anyone who loves wildlife and nature MUST do this at least once in their lifetime! And I can assure you... I will do it more than once myself ;) Dinner at 4PM - simple but tasty (soup, salad, a main dish, dessert). At 5PM you walk to the hides and quietly settle down. Unpack your snack and very important, your... More

It's out first time to visit Finland. And we had a great experience at Wild Brown Bear with a night at a bear-watching hide. It was a bit cold in the midnight but we were so excited to meet with bear. The other morning, we gathered with other visitors at the lodge restaurant and were shown with amazing photos! All... More

This is on a beautiful lake in the taiga forest and we also had an overnight in one of the Bear hides. Scenery is fantastic and the hide really well set up. We saw one bear "Goliath" very close by and several wolverines. Also had a couple of walks in the forest during the day - you don't see anyone... More

My husband and I joined a trip here in July and had a wonderful weekend. A nature walk on Saturday morning through the local woodlands and up to the Russian border was followed by a traditional lunch in the woods. At 5pm we were taken the short distance to the hide, this seated 10 people and was very hot but... More

It's an amazing place if you want to get close to wildlife at its best. Great blind facility to watch and photograph bears, wolfs, wolverine, fox, birds. There are several hides located only a few meters from a small lake and some hides are located further back to get a better view over the bog. The hide have all the... More

Wild Brown Bear in Kuhmo, close to Lentiira, is a small place about 1,5km from the Russian border. The place is located in the middle of the woods, but it is easy to find. The company was started by Ari Sääski a couple of years ago, to watch and photograph wild bears and other raptors, like foxes, wolverines and wolves... More
