Look for the Bear Necessities

Going on holiday should make you happy, no-one will argue with you on that one. Did you know that Finland is the happiest country in the world, according to the UN? So what could be better than taking a trip to Finland, to not only restore and replenish your ‘HAPPINESS’ levels, but get to see the beautiful brown bears of Finnish Lapland?

We’ve carefully curated a wonderful mini adventure to a part of the world that leave you feeling refreshed and rejuvenated.

Our new bear watching adventure is here

The mini adventure starts when you arrive in the wilderness of Kuusamo in Finland. Smell the pine trees, listen to the birds, feel the warmth of your welcome by your hosts for the next 4 days, sisters Katja Vira and Sirpa Kämäräinen at their wonderful timber panelled lodge, Isokenkäisten Klubi, located by the cool waters of Lake Heikinjärvi.

The next few days are taken up with home cooked and hearty meals for breakfast, lunch and dinner, canoeing on the lake, walking the hills, observing the gloriously ‘cuddly’ bears with an expert guide, a picnic lunch on a mountain with views over Russia and to top it all off, a traditional smoke sauna that is heated to perfection by a ‘sauna master’. Who knew there such a person as a sauna master? Well they have them in Finland and what a fabulous job they do. It is quite a responsibility, the happiness of the people of Finland and those visiting rests on their shoulders!

Well, we don’t think there’s much that could beat this mini adventure to be honest. We’ll be going live with some more mini adventures soon.

If you have any questions or would like to enquire about this trip then please let us know.
