Accommodation

Check-in Time:
18:00

The accommodation is inside a cabin in sleeping bags. There are beds for eight persons, a cooking possibility, and a dry toilet. The cabins are new buildings where you will get a chance to take photographs.

Program

At 18:00, your guide will be waiting at the meeting point. On your arrival, you will be led by the guide just a 200-meter walk to the watching building (hide). In the evening, you get to watch the bears from your building (hide). You will start your bear watching in the evening around 18:00 and return at 22:00 or in the following morning. The guide will show the place and makes sure that you feel comfortable and you can stay there on your own.

Bear-Kuusamo Ltd Safari does not hurt the bears, they just lure them with delights. The bear decides for itself whether it will come and say hi or not. It seems that the bears like Bear-Kuusamo Ltd as they always see the hairy friends with 99% guarantee. The bears are a little shy of the camera, but the nimblest photographers can grab a great shot of the bears. The guide will stay with you until around 22:00 and then he departs. In the morning your guide will come and fetch you from the hide.

Notes: Please avoid mosquito repellent or any strong perfumes, on a windless weather, they will chase the bears away. Preferably wear dark coloured clothes in order to avoid reflection from the hut's window.
