Wolverines Finland


Capture wild Wolverines of Finland through your lens

Wolverine is among the hardest animals in the world to see anywhere – let alone to photograph! Wolverines are solitary animals with nomadic lifestyle. But Finland offers superb opportunities for Wolverine photography – probably the best in the world! We at Finnature work closely with the best wildlife photography sites in Finland and can recommend the most suitable hides for Wolverine photography.

Book a Wolverine hide

Wolverines are most actively scavenging for food during dusk and dawn. Luckily in Finland we have bright summer nights and photography is possible almost throughout the night. Overnight hide sessions start with entry to the hide in the afternoon and last until the next morning. Early in spring or in autumn, the hide sessions can be day sessions when the nights are dark and long. Our partner Wolverine photography sites are located in Eastern Finland and can be easily visited on a self-drive basis.

We at Finnature do not own any of the wildlife photography hides but have worked closely with the best wildlife sites in Finland for years. We can recommend the best hides according to specific wishes. We always recommend at least two hide sessions to ensure the best possible photography opportunities. For booking, we need basic information about how many nights you want to book, and how many persons are coming. We know which sites work best in each season.

Prices for Wolverine photography hides start from 195 € / person / night. Prices include the use of hide and at some sites, outdoor snacks for the hide stay. In addition, most wildlife sites have their own accommodation facilities and can provide meals as well. We will provide more detailed information about prices when booking.

Book a Wolverine photography hide from our office via email at info(@)finnature.fi or via phone at +358 45 129 4264. Full payment of the hide is required at the time of booking.

Wolverine photography seasons

Wolverines do not hibernate and they can be seen and photographed throughout the year. In winter, however, the days are short and the animals move more actively during dark. We recommend to visit from spring to autumn when long days and light nights give chances for photography.

Finland is probably the best place in the world to see and photograph wild Wolverines. At our selected site for Wolverine photography, Wolverines are attracted in front of photography hides with food. It is not uncommon to encounter several individuals during only one night. Of course, empty nights do occur every now and then as well. Brown Bears and Wolves visit the same sites sometimes as well.

Recommended equipment for Wolverine photography hides

Distance to animals from hides varies greatly. Varying distances to food allow different angles and composition in images. In general, shorter lenses such as 70-200 mm are good for wider use and longer lenses from 300 mm upwards are better for portraits. Converters are useful as well. It is good to have a wide aperture in your lens as some photography will take place during dusk and dawn in low-light conditions.

Please note that it is not possible to change lenses during the photography session as it would scare the animals. There are usually at least two shooting openings for each photographer in the hide. Tripod is not needed but bring your own ball head for your camera. Ball head is attached to the photography shelf with a standard 3/8” mounting screw (provided in the hide). Don’t forget to bring plenty of memory cards and batteries!

The photography hides have bunk beds and sleeping bags. Hides often have gas heating as well. There are dry toilets in the hides.

Take warm clothes and woolen socks with you and preferably wear dark clothes. It is a good idea to bring binoculars for observing the surroundings! Also, do not bring snacks in rustling packaging to hides. The animals are most sensitive to noises. Repack your snacks for example to suitable boxes.
