Helikopterilennot Wildlife Safari 1.png



Witness wild bears, wolfs and wolverines in their natural habitat

- Fly direct into the hearth of wilderness in only 2,5 hours from Helsinki

Fly across Finland close to the Russian border, enjoy spectacular views above the Lakeland and meet the king of the forest from eye to eye. We cooperate with several wildlife tour operators and you can choose to experience it all in 24 hours or by spending a longer in the wilderness. You can either book one of our scheduled helicopter safari packages or just the flight to get there. If you are planning to travel to Lapland, a safari can also be organised on your way up to the north, making your stay in Finland an unforgettable one.

 At the moment we mainly operate to Bear Centre and Wild Life Safaris Finland, which are both great options for wildlife watching and photography. Please don't hesitate to contact us in case you would like us to customise a multi day experience for you as a combination of various destinations or even rent a smaller R44 helicopter with a pilot for your convenience and pleasure for several days.

Remember that wild animals  move with free will and to their own schedule. The probability to see a bear on a 24h layover is 90-99 % , depending on the month.
