    I feel I can recommend an experience at Boreal Wildlife Centre. We stayed three nights, including two in stakeout to see the wildlife in the area. Great overall organization of experience: transfer from/to Airport (Kajaani or Kuusamo, despite distinguished both more than 170 km from the city centre), excellent organization of the days. We were also very happy we had the room in the lodge during the whole period because after a night in the stakeout is convenient to rest. Staff very helpful and polite even accommodate us for our dietary needs. As for stakeouts were very happy with the experience. In fact we were warned that see the Wolverines and the wolves would have been very difficult. We saw 3-4 bears both nights of stalking, one of which he also created the bath in the pond in front of our eyes. The first night we stayed in a caravan in the forest. This the only weakness: this room we found it really very "wild". The second night, at the shed on the pond, went very well. To forget the comforts of a hotel room, however, the experience was very interesting and definitely we will repeat.

    The week in the BWC with Jani, Kari and the always friendly Cook was an excellent entry on our 3-week holiday in Finland. No boredom came up without a TV. Hiking trails in the surrounding area are proposed by Jani or Kari. A car is of course helpful here. We therefore strongly recommend an individual arrival (E.g. about SISU active travel).
