Nature in North Karelia

Here we go hand in hand, nature & humans

You will discover a region covered by thousands of lakes and pristine forests. Livelihood of people has been, and still is in many cases, based on different uses of forest. Finnish people are said to be born in forests and here you get to experience some wilderness areas of Finland. The legends and myths upon which the world-famous Kalevala Epic is based are originally from Karelia region. The region is still today known as the land of bears and wolverines. Many of these legends tell about people's encounters with bears. But not to worry, it is quite hard to meet a bear in a forest. If you are interested in bear observation, you may book a wildlife observation activity.
