Finnish Wilderness Week


Flight from your airport via Helsinki to Kajaani, transfer to your accommodation. Check-in and time to explore the resort.


Today your experience in Finnish wilderness really starts. You will enjoy a relaxing hiking tour via the scenic route across the hills. Local guide tells you stories about Vuokatti region, while you get to enjoy the Finnish nature at its best – beautiful lake views, hill scenery and fresh forest. Coffee and delicious snacks by an open fire included.

Rest of the day you can explore the resort, go swimming or fishing – Vuokatti has plenty of choice.


You can sleep in a bit as you won’t leave for the bear watching before afternoon. We can promise truly an unforgettable experience and the best opportunity to take the shot of a lifetime from the comfort and safety of our specially designed hides. At 2pm transfer from Vuokatti to Viiksimo. You’ll be escorted to a wooden hide where you can safely wait for the appearance of the bears. There is one seat for everyone with a camera hole and the hide has a dry toilet. Packed picnic food is provided for the evening. After magical evening accompanied by bears, at 9.30pm you will be escorted back to our bus and transfer back to Vuokatti.


After watching magnificent bears yesterday evening, this day will be spent socializing with huskies. Transfer to Husky Center where you will experience dog sledding in the summer with our “Husky Mercedes”! Ten huskies pull this specially adapted cart on wheels around the circuit. Programme includes harnessing the dogs with guide and husky ride about 1,5 km depending on temperature. After the ride you will have a tour in Husky Arena and will learn about huskies’ daily lifes.


The last day in the nature wonderland. Maybe you’ll just enjoy the nature, have another husky safari or go hiking– the choice is yours and there will definitely be something for everyone.


Transfer to the airport and flight back home.
