Bear Camping provides campsite and cottage accommodation in the idyllically peaceful and picturesque surrounds of lake Erilampi, amongst the Finnish nature.


Bear Camping was founded in April 2017, and work will take place throughout the years 2017 and 2018 to build our cottages and campsite area. Once completed Bear Camping will have the facilities to pitch 20 caravans or motor homes, along with 5 cottages for accommodation.

Bear Camping is located in the heart of the wilderness and beautiful surroundings of the Finnish Taiga, on the edge of lake Erilampi in the region of Kainuu in the town of Kuhmo/Vartius, near the Finnish–Russian border.


The area offers a great variety of nature, and gives excellent opportunities to experience the nature and wildlife of Finland. The location is surrounded by simply stunning scenery, with a mosaic of spruce, pines, large fresh water lakes, and rivers covering the surrounding landscape.


The centre specialises in Bear and Wolverine photography and observation in Finland. As guests of Bear Camping, you may experience both the Bears and Wolverines, or you can simply come solely for our relaxing accommodation.
