This is a great opportunity to see animals in the wild, or semi-wild really, because food is hidden all over the slightly cleared area and also thrown into the trees. The two person blinds – small houses really - are situated in the woods at the edge of the clearing. Our spot only had two blinds and was very quiet... More

First, lets get the bad points out of the way. This isn't for everyone. There's no electricity, no luxurious bathrooms and no flushing toilets.

Of course you can't take any date with any wild animal, we know well this rule. In Era Eero we were unlucky and we saw nothing at all, neither wolverine nor bears. But this is not a problem. The problem is that we arrived at 14.00 o'clock as agreed but we found a locked gate, and we had to wait... More

If you are exploring Finland, it is worth taking the time to travel to Lieksa so that you can partake in a truly fantastic wildlife experience. The company offered to do a 4-hour round trip to pick us up from Valamo monastery in Finland (also interesting) and offered us hot soup, coffee and cake on arrival at the main lodge.... More
