Watching Bears in Luxury Bear Cabin

The Luxury Bear Cabin company is a centre specialising in bear and wolverine observation in Finland. The company is located in the heart of a wilderness area and it has been arranging bear and wolverine photography and observation opportunities in the wild since 1999. The company is located less than two kilometres from the Finnish-Russian border. Across the border on the Russian side lies the large nature conservation area of Kostamus and the wild nature in this region sustains a healthy bear population providing fantastic wildlife watching. Since January 2016, the hide and cabin area is a private nature conservation area where all kind of hunting is prohibited giving bears and wolverines a calm and safe place.

Programme description

An Experience You Will Never Forget

Our Luxury Bear Cabin is one of the best places in the world to observe bears. The probability to see a bear is high, 90-99 % depending on the month. Some evenings numerous bears come at once, and often some can be seen in close proximity to the Cabin, only a few meters away.

The Bear season starts at the beginning of April with a white blanket of snow, continuing through the green summer, ending with the vibrant colours of autumn in October.

The probability to see a bear is 90-99 % , depending on the month, and each season about 20-30 bears visit the cabin and hide area. Some evenings several bears may be seen at the same time and the nearest bear may be a few meters from the Bear Cabin. Possibility for viewing Wolverine has been good year 2018, with a 70-80% success rate. Year 2018 we have had regular visits from 3 different Wolverines.
Possibility for viewing Wolf has been wonderful year 2018, with a 20-60% success rate, which is brilliant considering the range and behaviour of Wolves!

In the hide area on February, March, April and May Golden Eagle and White-Tailed Eagle had been seen many times. We are also happy to discover various species of birds that are inhabiting the local area. Amazing Siberian Jay and Black Woodpecker were observed many times from our hide. Also on many days, Cranes were seen flying above, mostly observed from the hide area.

Lastly we have also been seeing lots of Owls autumn 2018 around the hide areas, more often than not within photographic range. These species include; Great Grey, Ural, Tengmals, Hawk and Pygmy Owl.
