A safe way to meet the large carnivores of the taiga forest is to spend a night in our animal watching lodge in the middle of the wilderness.

You may see, hear and even film/photograph wolverines, brown bears, wolves, lynxes, beavers, goshawks, golden eagles, white-taled eagles as well as other wild animals living in the beautiful environs of Eräeero. The night is spent comfortably in a watching lodge where you sit on comfortable chairs or even take a little break and lie down in a bunk and have a little snack.

There is room for 18 persons and 12 drawstring holes for photographers. There are 6 places for persons using wheelchairs. Down in the valley there is a hide for professional photographers with 14 places for cameras. Wolverine is the most observed animal and it can be seen year-round.
