Wildlife observing

eye to eye with wolverine and bear

Erä-Eero’s operating area in Lieksa offers excellent opportunities for year-round photography and observation of large predators from purpose-built heated huts.

In summer, visitors may be lucky enough to spot wolverine, perhaps even with their young, and from April through October bears are a possibility. Also native to the area are lynx, foxes, beavers, goshawks, and golden and white-tailed eagles. Huts suitable for photographing can be found on several mires and by wilderness ponds. They can be used to photograph various bird species throughout the year including woodpeckers, small birds, waterfowl, waders, black grouse, red-throated divers, cranes, eagles, hawks, owls, and geese.
