observe bear and wolverine / professional wildlife guide / individuals and small group / moose safari / Accommodation in local tradition house / Sustainable tourism
With the predator hides , the chance to observe and photography bears are reasonnable, the success is about 90-95 % depending the season. Wolverines are appearing with a success of about 60-80 % , so with 2 nights in hide you are "pratically" insuring success to see at least one of the 2 predators or even both. The hides are located in a wolves´s territory so there is also a chance to see passing by wolves ( usually once in week) .For moose , we usually see 1 to 3 individuals and up to 6, success is around 80 %.
