Finland is a country covered with forest: approximately 80 % of the surface of the country is covered with it. And what hides in these thick forests? Have you ever seen an elk swimming? Or met a quick marten or a wily fox?
Finland is one of the last countries in the world where you can experience nature, untouched by man and full of rare wild animals. Because of the excellent travel services, it is easy to access genuine wilderness experiences.
You can walk in the forest with a wilderness guide or you can wait for the more timid animals in a photography booth – you can see the animals in their natural habitat. Alternatively, you can also admire the animals in a zoos and wildlife parks.
In the rush and crush of modern life, the rarities are what we value most, such as space, quiet and time. The space to breathe, a time to dream… you can find these treasures in Finland, where the lakes are many and the people are few.
There are tours available, which combine photography of wolves, wolverines, eagles and winter landscapes like Oulanka and Riisitunturi National Parks with magnificent frozen canyon scenery. If the weather allows, the Northern Lights are the highlight of the tour.
