About Your Trip
Basecamp Oulanka - This is a superb base in a wilderness location, with excellent facilities; this self-sustaining wooded complex takes immediate inspiration from the surrounding wilderness. Twin rooms with en suite bathrooms are in two separate buildings. The third building is a cosy restaurant and bar, with a log fire, sauna and outdoor hot tub.
Bear hide - One of the nights is spent in our bear hide located near the Russian/ Finnish border. This specialized hide is equipped with comfortable viewing chairs, sleeping areas (with sleeping bags provided by
Basecamp) and dry toilets.
Campsite - In Russia we spend our nights in tents. You are provided with a roll mat and sleeping bag from Basecamp Oulanka. As this is totally in the wilderness there are no facilities at the campsite.
