Wildlife Watching – Spend a Night in a Wildlife Watching Hut
Welcome to Eero's Wildlife Lodge of Keljanpuro Brook! The staff invites you to their cosy, eco-friendly lodge.
Enjoy the taste of fresh welcoming coffee, a Karelian pasty and a sweet bun and listen to a story about the place you’re visiting. The staff introduces you to the principles of wildlife watching to make sure your experience and chances of seeing wolverines, bears, wolves or other animals is as good as possible. The lodges are hidden in the wilderness, the natural habitat of these wild animals, so you have a great chance of seeing them. Of course, it cannot be guaranteed because wild animals roam the woods as they wish. The most often seen wild visitors are wolverines and bears. Wolves, foxes, white-tailed eagles and even lynx are also often spotted by wildlife watchers. Nature hosts an exciting show, and you never know what animals show up and when!
After first greetings and an introduction, the guide takes you to a watching hut. There are comfortable seats and a panoramic view to the lake area, where wolverines, bears and other animals keep visiting. Sit down and listen to the serene symphony of nature sounds. Relax and observe a show put on by Mother Earth herself!
You have until next morning to witness the predators, the Finnish “nightless” night and the life all around you. Enjoy the snacks prepared by the staff and take a nap in a bed if you dare.
You'll notice how mindful you feel after staying quiet and being so close to nature and its animals!
*There is an earth closet and a room for quiet moving at the hut to make you feel comfortable all the time.
