Destinations: Karalia, Finland

The Karalia region of Finland is one close to Finnish hearts. It is a region that has been fought over several times. Nestling up against the Russian border it is not densely populated and in parts very wild. It is a land of Taiga forests, lakes and bogs with good numbers of Brown Bear, Wolf and Wolverine. These mammals are not easy to see without local help but a variety of lodges with local guides, sometimes with photo-hides, can assist in that.
