Erä-Eero is located in Kontiovaara, Lieksa in East-Finland. Known over the world as the best place to see and photograph wolverines, Erä-Eero offers wildlife observation and photographing hides for everyone from nature enthusiasts to professional photographers. Erä-Eero is open all year round, but we don´t recommend December and January for visiting, because of the very short day.
Our main attraction is the wolverine which can be seen year-round. Bears can be seen and photographed from April till end of September. Other species that visit our area are wolf, fox, beaver, goshawk, golden eagle and sea eagle.
The Keljänpuro Lodge is our main building and the meeting point. A former logger’s cabin has been renovated and altered for tourism purpose. The scenery in Keljänpuro is beautiful pine and mixed forest where you can enjoy quietness. We follow the green values; we have a solar power system, dry toilets and outdoor shower heated by gas. We can accommodate 20 people in our main building and smaller huts located close to the Lodge. There are no power outlets in the dormitory nor huts, but you can charge your batteries in the main lounge.
Air connections to the nearest airport in Joensuu are excellent and you can drive from Joensuu to us in about 1 hour. From Helsinki, the capital of Finland, you get to Lieksa easily by train in about 6 hours.
Welcome to enjoy the pure nature, peace and silence!
