Top choice wildlife in Kuusamo & Ruka

Thrilling bear-watching trips spend the evening at a comfortable hide overlooking a meadow where bears regularly stop by: most of the summer you have a high chance of seeing a honeypaw. Evening trips return to town around midnight; overnight trips return the next morning. Tuomo, the knowledgeable guide, can also arrange birdwatching. It's 13km southeast of Kuusamo off Rd 866.
