Birding Tour Finland: Owls, Taiga, and Fjords 2017
Duration: 12 or 7 days
Birding Tour Finland Itinerary – The 12-day version is detailed here, but the first 7 days can be done as an independent tour, in which case you fly into and out of Oulu and you end the tour 5 days earlier.
Finland is a land of interesting contrasts, such as the four seasons, the Midnight Sun and the winter darkness, urban and rural, east and west. As you look out from the plane, the first impression you may have is that there are a lot of trees … an endless carpet of forest, with many lakes and small towns in between. It’s kind of a surprise when you land in Helsinki to find that the airport is so modern and efficient: not a polar bear in sight. It’s truly amazing how uniquely exotic each season can be. Four times a year, nature changes its uniform completely – color, light, temperature, sounds, and smells. Everything changes in a way that happens nowhere else. We look forward to welcoming you to Birding Tour Finland!See full tour detail
