South Lapland area is the winter photographing paradise where the huge untouched snow fields cover your way to the well equipped photographing hides. Golden eagles are living here so it is more than possible that you see these big birds gliding silently above the white untouched snowfields. A lot of different birds are living in ancient forests: Black woodpecker, siberian jay, crested tit, raven, black grouse, capercaillie etc. Variety is huge and we can promise nearly ten different species during one day in hide. Our base camp in South Lapland is Taigalampi log cabin in Syöte Hiking area. Beautiful old house offers a lot of space and cosy atmosphere near the Syöte National Park. On the yard you will find nice place for photographing great selection of arctic forest birds and reindeers.
Other area is Wild Taiga, Kainuu province, North-East part of Finland, in the huge wilderness area near the Russian Border. This is a kingdom of our four biggest predators, brown bear, wolverine, wolf and lynx. Our base camp is an old log cabin in the forest located only couple of kilometres from Russian border zone, on the shore of real wilderness lake Kuikka. Lake Kuikka is also a place for fishing, canoeing and enjoying the hot tub on a shore during the refreshing smoke-sauna and lake swimming session.
