This once in the lifetime adventure is arranged in North-East-Finland from mid April to mid August.
Starting point to our unforgettable bear watching trip is from Syöte Visitor Centre. Eco-friendly car or bus takes you to Russian border. After approximately two hours driving we arrive to Arola Farm. Bear safaris have been organized in Arola since 1999. Safe and cozy log huts for bear watching and photographing are waiting for you. In early spring we leave to the huts from farm around 4 pm, and from June already from 3 pm. Picnic lunch with sandwiches and hot drinks is served in cabins.
In the lives of brown bears there are a number of events during the summer that give followers new interesting experiences. In the spring, beginning of May, the bears wake up from their winter sleep and start searching for food, getting stronger, and looking for a mate. Mating season is in early June and during the end of the summer the bears start fattening up for the winter. Surprise for photographers there might be lovely playing cubs from the previous summer! At best, as many as 13 different bears have been seen in the area.
