The European country of Finland remains one of the largely unspoiled and charming destinations. Tourists from all over the world come here to enjoy the mighty rivers, thousands of lakes and snowy mountains. Its untouched beauty remains the most attractive aspect of this marvelous country.


Adventurers have many opportunities to let off steam and enjoy some thrilling experiences in the Finnish wilderness. Bear watching seems to have become a very popular activity. The suitable hides for six to eight people include beds, toilet, comfortable chairs and very close viewing of the bears. The Kuusamo adventure week is a real treat and the area is for a good reason called ‘the adventure capital of Finland’. The activities the tourist try out include shooting the rapids in rubber rafts, mountain biking, horse riding – and all this set in a fascinating scenery. After a challenging day, the tourists relax in traditional Finnish saunas – a well deserved rest after a hard day’s work.


Those fond of rivers and lake may chose the Lakeland seal trail. The unique beauty of the ecosystem here which includes the Saimaa ringed seal is a wonderful experience. Furthermore, travelers may enjoy the natural treasures when hiking in the Oulanka National Park. Its wilderness is a perfect opportunity of a week of exploration and discovery. Local fauna and flora are simply outstanding.


Many visitors who come here to appreciate the uniqueness of Finnish wildlife agree that the best way to enjoy the trip is a horseback adventure. It usually lasts a week and the tourists are taken on an unforgettable tour along the river valley and gorges of the fantastic Oulanka National Park. The strong and energetic horses are used to crossing big rivers so getting wet is one aspect the tourists need to prepare for as well as some nights spent in utter wilderness. Even less experienced riders are welcome to join the groups and appreciate the charms of Finnish nature.
