Based at three specialist lodges in the taiga forest of Finland, this self-drive trip offers Europe’s best chance of seeing and photographing brown bear, wolf and wolverine in evocative natural habitat.

On this unique wildlife adventure in the boreal forest of Finland you self-drive between lodges, allowing you to explore the wildlife of the taiga at your own pace. We have selected three lodges with a network of outstanding hides from which to watch and photograph such iconic inhabitants of the far north as brown bear, wolf, wolverine and white-tailed eagle. Throughout spring and summer these overnight hides offer mammal-watching which is unrivalled in northern Europe.
