It is said that the Finns are the happiest people on the planet, and I think they owe much of that happiness to the amazing wildlife that enriches their country!
Tourists can visit some pretty amazing locations and spot wolverines, bears, elk, wolves, and bears. The wilderness in this country is one of the best places to spot a brown bear anywhere in Europe.
There’s actually a Finnish term, ‘Everyman’s right’ (Joakmiehen Oikeus), and that means everybody can walk freely in nature, anywhere they want to.
For the last 6 years, PE teacher Valtteri Mulkahainen from Sotkamo, Finland, was taking pictures of the wildlife and was lucky enough to capture a few shots of a few very unique moments.
Back in 2013, he wanted to explore the Finnish taiga around Martinselkonen, which is a town in Finland. However, he had no idea that he was about to witness the most adorable thing in the world: a bear with a couple of small bear cubs.
The cubs carried on like little kids. They were playing and even began a couple of well disposed battles. I had a feeling that I was on a play area before my home, where little kids skip around. That is the amount they helped me to remember little youngsters. At a certain point, them three found a workable pace rear legs and began pushing one another. It resembled they were moving around.”
From a safe house 50 meters (164 feet) away from them, he could watch the cute creatures “all night and throughout the night.
They are too adorable!
Bears live wherever in Finland, with a large portion of them gathered in the eastern piece of the nation and Lapland. As indicated by the Finnish Natural Resources Institute, before the 2019 chasing season, there were somewhere in the range of 2020 and 2130 bears.
However, they generally quietly retreat following being spotted, so they are an uncommon sight.
Since they unreservedly wander the nation, Finland sorts out the best bear watching safaris in Europe. Creature darlings can likewise take bear viewing and photography trips in the focal and eastern woods of Lakeland in the period from April to September.
Bears are solid and dexterous and have astounding climbing and swimming capacities.
For each one of those that fear the idea to have an experience with the bear, we have a couple of tips. Most importantly, leave the zone on the off chance that you see it from a separation.
If it’s closer, and the bear spots you, start speaking with a very calm and low voice, and start retreating, avoid any possible eye contact. That way the bear knows you’re a human, and you’ll be able to defend yourself, but you decide to leave her territory and you don’t mean any threat.
In case a bear approaches you, just keep calm and don’t be afraid (if that’s possible), also try to look as large as you can.
