I spend two wonderful days in Taiga Spirit, taking very good photos of bears and wolverine. The organization is perfect, good and plentiful food (amazing snack box for the night), great support for camera gear (beanbag and tripod heads are provided), comfortable seats (I didn't find the same in other places) and big attention to cleaning. Cleanness is a strong point of Taiga Spirit: sheet and pillowcase are provided in addition to sleeping beds to spend the night in the hides, nice slippers guarantee heat and comfort, the toilet is in perfect conditions. If you want to enjoy bears in Finland in a comfortable environment, this is where to go.

Highly recommended small scale photography/nature company in Kuhmo, Lentiira. I spend 3 nights in photography hides in mid May and was lucky with the weather. The hides are well equipped (great camera benches, places for ballheads, sandbags etc excellent camera"hood" s at least 3 different on the long edge of the hide, comfy chairs good windows, warmer, bunks, sleep bags and a toilet as well.) Daytime accommodation I was super with private shower/bathroom, upstairs the main house . Just be a bit careful; the stairs and very steep :) Sabrina is excellent guide and host; all meals were very tasty and plenty. Also the snack box for the hide night is amazing, So one won't leave hungry. And of course the main thing: the wildlife ! My main goal was to see and photograph wolverine and it showed up 2 out of 3 nights! The bears are active, too, 5-7 different individual brown bear per night, so not bad at all.

We visited there in the summer of 2019, and it was an amazing trip. We saw two bear Cubs during the second night. There was rain on the first day, but the night in the forest was very quiet and relaxing. I was reading while keeping an eye on any animal. Sabrina is a great host; she introduced us a lot of things about mushroom in the wild; she left mushrooms that are easy for people to pick, and only picked those hiding deeper in the woods; she introduced us great local chocolates of Finland; and took us to the large carnivore center, where we learnt a lot about wolverine, lynx, bear, wolf and golden eagle from the taiga area. Sabrina also gave us the chance to experience Sauna , thank you! Till now this trip is still my favorite trips in my life, and thanks to my companion Yasmin. We walked and talked in the forest trying to seek the trace of me elk. Although we did not see elk finally. So good luck to you all. If there’s chance and if I learnt how to drive, I want to visit Lentiira again.

We really enjoyed our 8 day long holiday at Taiga spirit! We saw great wildlife: a lot of bears, the great grey owl, elks, the wild forest reindeer, cranes and even a wolf! Sabrina is an amazing superwoman and does everything by herself, from guiding and preparing the hides to cooking and running a b&b. We will definetely go back to this wonderfull place!

Great program if you’re short on time and interested in both wildlife and scenery that Europe has to offer. The accommodation (both room and bear hide) is warm and comfortable, the meals simple yet varied and filling, and the host friendly, organised, and experienced. You will get an experience above and beyond what it says on the tin. Lentiira itself is a nice quiet village for walking, and obviously the safaris are a highlight. Most are lucky enough to see mammals during there time there. And the sauna is available for guests to use. Although quite far from Helsinki, we found taking the overnight train made the journey seem a lot shorter than it actually was. It was nice to completely escape from city life for a few days, and learn from an expert about the Finnish Taiga. A very peaceful stay, with adrenaline when (or if!) the bears arrive.
