If very lucky, we can see a Nordic moose or deer, otter, eagle, osprey, owls, smaller creatures. There are lynx, occasionally (but rarely) bears and wolves. To see tracks of them is possible.

A Recent Review of this tour

The tour with Johan was simply excellent. We booked the tour as an alternative to our cruise ship's offers as we felt the need for nature and serenity after three days of city tours. The kids and ourselves enjoyed the beautiful forest and lake and Johan's impressive knowledge about Finland no matter what questions we asked him. We were treated to a hearty and yummy sausage bbq. We enjoyed the relaxed atmosphere and easy going and friendly attitude of Johan. We can highly recommend this tour.
