Photo Hunter’s Long Weekend


Flight from your airport via Helsinki to Kajaani, transfer to your accommodation. Check-in and time to explore the resort.


Today your experience in Finnish wilderness really starts. You will enjoy a relaxing hiking tour via the scenic route across the hills. Local guide tells you stories about Vuokatti region, while you get to enjoy the Finnish nature at its best – beautiful lake views, hill scenery and fresh forest. Coffee and delicious snacks by an open fire included.

Rest of the day you can explore the resort, go swimming or fishing – Vuokatti has plenty of choice.


Today you will need your camera, so remember to load up the battery. You will head out to Hiidenportti National Park already in the morning. The canyons of Hiidenportti alone are an impressive sight but you will be also astonished by shady spruce forests and flowery meadows. The park has many fascinating places and local guide will tell you about the nature and interesting story about a demon called Hiisi who has given his name to the National Park. Coffee and delicious snacks by an open fire included. Route length approximately 3km. After the hike drive to Kuhmo for well deserved lunch.

Time for the shot of a lifetime from the comfort and safety of our specially designed hides at Boreal Wildlife Center. Drive from Kuhmo to Viiksimo across beautiful Finnish forests. You’ll be escorted to a wooden hide where you can safely wait for the appearance of the bears. There is one seat for everyone with a camera hole and the hide has a dry toilet. Packed picnic food is provided for the evening. After magical evening accompanied by bears, at 9.30pm you will be escorted back to our bus and transfer back to Vuokatti.


After watching magnificent bears yesterday evening, this day will be spent socializing with huskies. Transfer to Husky Center where you will experience dog sledding in the summer with our “Husky Mercedes”! Ten huskies pull this specially adapted cart on wheels around the circuit. Programme includes harnessing the dogs with guide and husky ride about 1,5 km depending on temperature. After the ride you will have a tour in Husky Arena and will learn about huskies’ daily lifes and of course have plenty of photo moments with these photogenic dogs.


Transfer to the airport and flight back home.
