Let’s go animal spotting in Finland
Finland's vast green forests, beautiful Baltic islands, windswept arctic fells, and countless blue lakes are home to some amazing wildlife and animal watching.
These pristine and picturesque landscapes provide habitats for many wild animals and birds, including bears, wolves, lynxes, eagles, cranes, swans and the world’s rarest seal.
