    If you go down to the woods today...

    A thoroughly enjoyable short getaway to a beautiful and peaceful destination. There were four different hide locations in and around the no-mans land area on the Russian border - a truley unique and magical setting. Seeing such majestic bears and wolves up close at sunset left all of us mesmerised and certainly made the long nights worthwhile. It was only a matter of a few hours before the first sighting and there was space for a nap in your sleeping bag during the hours when there wasn't any sunlight. The food at the base camp was hearty (lots of meatballs!) and really delicious.

    What was the most inspirational moment of your trip?

    Seeing a bear for the first time. I had gone with the hope of experiencing just one sighting, yet after the first night in the hide the trip had already surpassed my expectations as i saw 12 sightings of 4 different bears plus a fleeting glimpse of 2 wolves. No wolverines unfortunately! Swimming in the lake after enjoying a few beers in the smoke sauna - a wonderfully refreshing feeling that is hard to re-create any other way. 

    What did you think of your group leader?

    Sami and his family were very friendly hosts at their comfortable and homely base camp in the woods, they worked all hours and went out of the way to take me fishing and make sure that the saunas were ready when you wanted them. Antii took us walking out in the woods and was also great company - all the staff spoke English really well.

    Do you have any advice for potential travellers?

    Take some warm clothes for the nights in the hide - they are insulated but quite basic as you would expect for small hides. You make yourself a packed lunch before setting off in the evening and the base camp provides you with thermos flasks to fill up so no need to pack one of these. They can also rent out equipment such as camera clamps should you need them. People should be aware that the best opportunity for washing whilst at the base camp is the Finnish way i.e. a suana (they have both regular and smoke saunas) followed by a dip in the fresh water lake (so clean that you can drink it). There are showers on site but you don't get total privacy. If you want to rent a canoe or go fishing then it is best to arrange this in advance through Exodus.
