On this self-drive itinerary you’ll enjoy easy driving on traffic-free roads while travelling through the sparsely populated taiga forests of north-eastern Finland. There are even five national parks with their hiking, canoeing and fishing possibilities easily accessible from the route. Close to the Russian border you can participate in bear or wolverine observation tours which give you a unique chance to watch and photograph these animals safely. In an information centre you’ll get to know Finland’s large carnivores – bear, wolf, lynx and wolverine.
