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...More

This is a great opportunity to see animals in the wild, or semi-wild really, because food is hidden all over the slightly cleared area and also thrown into the trees. The two person blinds – small houses really - are situated in the woods at...More

First, lets get the bad points out of the way. This isn't for everyone. There's no electricity, no luxurious bathrooms and no flushing toilets. It also isn't the easiest place to find but then this is a wilderness experience. However if you want close up...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
