Bear-Watching, Eastern Finland (Finland). 'Old Honeypaws, the brown bear (Ursus arctos), is the national animal of Finland. Around a thousand of these powerful creatures live in the northeast. Several operators run bear hides close to the frontier, where you can sit a silent night’s vigil as bruins snuffle out elk carcasses and carefully hidden chunks of salmon. The best time to see them is between mid-April and August.' http://www.lonelyplanet.com/finland
