THE MOST EXCITING SUMMER EXPERIENCE IS WAITING FOR YOU

Embark on an adventure in Kuusamo near the Russian border and experience bears under the midnight sun. Stay at the Isonkenkäisten Klubi's Wilderness Hotel or floating Aurora Hut glass igloos. Slip into soft sheets after an eventful night, enjoy a long breakfast and relax in their '7-star' smoke sauna. The holiday is topped with a delicious dinner made with wild foods.

“Welcome and enjoy the wilderness. Our programs gently invite you into nature. Slow down and experience our smoke saunas, enjoy the wholesome local food, and let us pamper you. Not forgetting the soothing silence that guarantees deep sleep.”

BEAR PACKAGE 326 € / PER PERSON

2 days in a double room
The package price is valid from 8.6.-31.9.2021
 

The package includes 2 days accommodation for two people at the Isonkenkäisten Klubi Wilderness Hotel, breakfasts, a wild food dinner, and one of Finland's most amazing sauna experiences.  

The '7-star' smoke sauna is worthy of its name with its gentle steam and rejuvenating peat facial mask. Relaxing at the sauna along with enjoying Isonkenkäisten Klubi's own food products ensure that guests have a relaxing holiday.

Bears can be seen from just a few kilometers away at the Karhu-Kuusamo viewing point. Every summer, mother bears and their cubs visit Kuntilampi, and ofcourse, the rambunctious cubs are the most fun to watch! As the name implies ("lammi" means "pond" in Finnish), Kuntilammi has a small pond where the bears like to swim. During the evening and night, almost a dozen bears may visit scene. Our expert guides can tell you more about the bears visiting the site. 

We recommend bear watching on the first day of the trip. There will be plenty of time on the second evening to enjoy a smoke sauna and a wild food dinner.

Bear watching starts at 6 pm and guests will depart from the bear-watching cabin at about 10 pm.

We offer an experience that makes you feel part of Finnish nature!
