The Wild Finland tour starts and ends in Basecamp Oulanka. The Wild Finland is a safari tour that takes 6 days taking you through Basecamp Oulanka, Finland and other destinations in Finland.

As if impatient from the tortuously cold winter months, far Eastern Finland emerges from hibernation in full bloom, its fauna keen to redress the balance. Delve into the wilderness to unravel and illuminate its remarkable wildlife, watching eagerly from a hide for the arrival of Brown bears. Bears aren't the only highlight as we get to experience the Finnish wilderness of Oulanka National Park, with its whitewater rivers, spruce forest and scotch pine. Nature rafting and a husky walk are also part of the adventure.

Do it!
“This was my first solo trip ..... ever! I neednt have worried, despite a very tight connection flight, 1 passenger and some luggage (including mine) didnt make it, everything else was spot on. I understand that this was due to the usual airport being temporarily closed, not a lot Exodus could do about that.Finland is beautiful, the activities on offer were varied, Basecamp comfortable, the food was good and everyone we met was very friendly.”

Wilderness Escape
“If you want to be immersed in the beautiful Finnish wilderness and escape the frenetic pace of modern life, this is the trip for you. 5 days filled with easy hiking, rafting, husky walks and bear watching. There is also plenty of down time just to soak up the tranquility, take a sauna or take a dip in the lake.Basecamp Oulanka is the prefect place to recharge your batteries.”

Great mix of outdoor activities
“Although the bear hide was the lure for us on this trip, the other activities of walking with huskies, rideing the river and walking the forests all made this a brilliant short break. Long days meant we had good evenings watching the bears and time to do things during the day as well. Oulanka base camp was a great venue.”

Amazing trip in Beautiful Finland
“Brilliant and well organised trip - seeing bears & cubs was a real highlight, and the accommodation was great. you can do as much (or little) as you like during the free time - go for a swim in the lake, go trekking, canoeing, or just relax and enjoy the scenery. Food was nice and all locally sourced.”
