GREAT GREY OWL

To be fixed by the penetrating yellow gaze of a great grey owl is to experience the wild magic of Finland’s taiga forests in all their unspoilt beauty. One of the world’s largest owls, this magnificent bird is often seen hunting voles during winter, but May-June is the best time to see nesting owls. Also look for Capercaillie, black grouse, parrot crossbill, Siberian jay, woodpeckers. Non-feathered highlights include brown bear, lynx, wolverine and reindeer.
