Cheesemans' Ecology Safaris


About the Region

Set among Europe’s iconic cultural heritage sets some of the most protected natural areas in the world. From the scenic Alps to the deep blue Mediterranean waters to the snowy fjords, Europe will intrigue you.


Sparsely populated, Finland offers exceptional opportunities to observe and photograph wolverines, gray wolves, and brown bears. Spend time in photography and viewing blinds to observe and photograph these elusive mammals at close range. Sail on Lake Saimaa in Linnansaari National Park, home of the endangered and endemic Saimaa ringed seal. Meander through primeval forest and vast bogs of Patvinsuo National Park. Spend afternoons searching for resident birds and exploring the pristine lands of Valtavaara, one of Europe’s best birding spots, to see capercaillie, red-flanked bluetail, little and rustic buntings, hazel grouse, three-toed woodpecker, and gray-headed chickadee. Regardless if you’re an avid photographer or wildlife enthusiast, you will enjoy fabulous views of elusive and seldom seen mammals on this small-group safari!
