This is a commercial wildlife photography location (bearcentre.fi) where you see the animals from a photography hide during the night. And what a night it was. I spent 14 hours in a photography hide (5 pm - 7 am) and I saw 8 different bears, a wolverine and 2 foxes. Distances were between 5 to 30 meters. It's said that a bear moves silently and that's very true. The first bear was about 6 meters from me when I saw it and I still couldn't hear it walking. From May to August it's great for this kind of night photography in Northern Finland since the sun is up about 18-20 hours a day.

This is really a magic location. Every Euro we spent there was worth the experience. In one night we had six bear sightings plus a wolverine. For more images and infos of the proceedings see this blog post: https://www.herumkommer.de/baer-und-vielfrass/

It really is my favourite bear location. I've tried several others but this one has multiple choices between different terrains (by the ponds, swamp, inside forest etc).
