Wonderful wildlife. However customer service was appaling. The dry toilet had not been emptied. The guide told us that he will not clean the toilets if the previous visitors have left them untidy. In addition, some of the group members were left without food even...More

A remote secret, tucked away in the Finnish forest. We were hoping for Wolverine sightings and were not disappointed! We saw these incredible animals 5 different times, all in close proximity, exhibiting different behaviour and characters. It was breathtaking! So close that it was easy...More

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...More
