Short trip to the Lake District from Helsinki 2-4.7.

Short trip to the Lake District from Helsinki 2-4.7.

Two unforgettable nights - the first deep in the wilderness observing wildlife and the next in a luxurious scenery suite with glass roof. 

In the forests of the easternmost Finland there are living not only wolverines but also wolves, brown bears, lynxes, beavers, goshawks, golden eagles, white-taled eagles, foxes as well as other wild animals.Wildlife can be observed throughout the year even if the brown bear is sleeping from November until April. 

Erä-Eero's wildlife centre  is one of the best places in Finland and Europe for viewing and photographing wolverines. They have built comfortable viewing and photographing cabins in the most beatiful and picturesque settings. All cabins have heating and places for sleeping. The professional cabins are located at the same level with animals well hidden. The observation cabins again are located a bit further up in the slope. In the cabin there is a device for listening the voices of the animals.

Wildlife viewing suits for everyone interested in observing the real nature, also for handicapped people (6 places). the only requirement is that you are able to stay silent for almost 15 hours!   

Järvisydän Resort & Spa is a unique hotel by lake Saimaa, which is the biggest lake in Finland and home of Saimaa ringed seals. We have included a 3 hour boat tour in Linnansaari National Park to take you out to observe seals.  

You will stay overnight in a scenery suite with a glass roof so you can enjoy the light summer night. There is however a curtain you can use in order to get sleep if you like it darker.
