Come to see and photograph bears, eagles and other animals of the taiga forest! Our bear watching site is located just next to eastern border of Finland, in Kuntivaara at Kuusamo.

Bears, white-tailed eagles, ravens, and many other birds visit our place every day. If you’re lucky, you might also see golden eagle, wolverine, moose, northern goshawk or even a black kite, which is rare in Finland! Nature will always have the best surprises!

All the animals visiting our place, are wild. We take you to the heart of their natural habitat. Wild animals don’t follow any schedules, and there’s no guarantee of seeing them, but bears visit us every night with 99% certainty.
