I’m planning a trip to Finland at the beginning of June, next year. My priority is wolverine. I’ve read the reports on here, and Wild Brown Bear – where Mark Hows went – is appealing as it seems to have both regular brown bear and wolverine and it’s relatively close to Oulu, where I’ll be going owl watching. However, although I’d really like to see brown bear, I don’t want to reduce my chances of wolverine too much and I’m wondering if this is a good a bet as other places, where bears aren’t so common? Also I presume that I’d need to book two nights – rather expensive! – in case I dip the first night? Or are they likely to have free spaces if I fail on my first attempt?
Any thoughts on the best place for wolverine or any other tips/comments on any other mammals in Finland would be much appreciated.
