Best place to see wolverines
Jul 2021
Visited here for a third time now and still in love with this place. Stayed two nights this time, first in the pond and second in the forest. Both nights saw several wolverines, and this place is your best opportunity to see them in Finland. They came very close to the hides and were not too shy, great photo opportunities. Eero is a true animal and nature lover and has always something interesting to tell you. I appreciate his devotion to wildlife conservation.

A fantastic nature park with many trails for the nature lovers.
Nov 2019
We stayed here three days and enjoyed our stay withthree long hikes through the park. Forest, lakes and hills and a lot of birds such as the Siberian Jay, wild swans, cranes etc. Bears, wolves, foxes, martens, moose and reindeer can also be spotted. On request you can hire a guide who knows how to locate the animals, increasing the chances of spotting.

Amazing wilderness
Jul 2020
We visited Erä Eero with my husband for a night in July. We had heard that this would be the best place in Finland to see wolverines, and we didn´t leave dissapointed. We got a small hide just for two of us close to the most beautiful bond in the middle of the wilderness. We saw several wolverines as well brown bears, ravens, wigeons and other birds. We went to the hide about 3 pm and left 8 am in the morning. Night was really cold, so be prepared. All the hides have beds and eco toilets, ours were tidy and pleasant to use. Eero himself is a great guy, I could have listened his stories forever. He also had a female employee (sorry cant remember her name) who was really friendly and competent also. I would warmly recommend this to anybody interested to see wild animals, even photographer or not. I personally took 4000 photos and videos during our stay, that might tell something. I am sure we will go again in future.

No luck but unique experience

We chose to do the observation night in their animal hide out. The hide out was really clean and really comfortable. It also had blankets and sleeping bags that saved our lifes! (It gets really cold) but unfortunately we didn't saw any bears or wolves. But they cant't control nature. So I don't blame them for anything

Wonderful place and friendly people

I stayed at Era-Eero with Helen and two friends for one night. Although we only saw one Bear and one Wolverine we enjoyed our visit and would definitely visit again.
A massive thanks to Heini for organising our visit and translating using her excellent English. Also thanks to Hannah for translating our lengthy conversation with Ero over a lovely breakfast. He has a wealth of knowledge on Wolverines.
All in all could only be improved by more Wolverines but that’s nature for you.
Huge thanks to the team at Era-Eero.

Best Place to see Wolverines
May 2018 • Solo
Lovely property with a small running stream next to the sauna and main building. Era and Heini did a wonderful job and their service they provided was beyond what I expected. Seeing a wolverine in the wild was the best as I saw 4 different ones in two nights and a big brown bear. The hides were decent but might not be for everyone. I wish the shower was indoors but remember this is the wilderness and I mean wilderness. I love this place.

Great place for wolverine
May 2017 • Solo
Visited in May 2017. Superb sightings of at least 6 individuals, with wolverine activity all night. Had the place to ourselves, which was excellent. Comfortable bed in the hide. Recommended.

Erä Eero is well know arranger of nature treks and a famous photographer of the wild as well. Era Eero arranges the treks / hikes to see something genuine and breathtaking, see wolverines and wolves and bears by the marshes and forest lakes. We once visited while my late father and that time Era Eero was not so well known, yet. Worth visiting, we could not this time, there were no place/ space so I think this is something to be booked long time in advance.

Great wildlife, poor service
Jul 2017 • Couples
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 though the website states special dietary requirements are taken into account. This was confirmed more specifically with the guide via email and therefore we hadn't brought food with us. Some comments from the guide were inappropriate.

Loistavia villieläimiä. Kuitenkin asiakaspalvelu oli todella huonoa. Huussia ei ollut tyhjennetty. Opas kertoi meille, ettei hän siisti huusseja, jos edellinen vieras ne on sotkenut. Lisäksi jotkin ryhmämme jäsenet jäivät ilman ruokaa vaikka nettisivulla sanotaan, että erikoisruokavaliot otetaan huomioon. Tämä vahvistettiin tarkemmin oppaan kanssa sähköpostilla ja siksi emme tuoneet omia eväitä. Jotkin oppaan kommentit olivat asiattomia.
