Project Description

Feel fresh air of autumn and explore exciting wildlife of taiga in colorful landscapes – during the tour there are chances to photograph Golden Eagles, Black Grouses, Brown Bears, Wolverines and Wild Wolves at the close-range and don’t forget brilliant landscapes of Oulanka National Park!

In autumn, finnish nature is getting ready for the winter in full colors with a mixture of yellow, orange & red giving plenty of chances for the landscape photography. In Kuusamo we will explore the best sceneries of Oulanka National Park area with its impressive Kitka and Oulanka rivers. Feel the serenity of nature at the top of mountains.
