On our early bird photography tours you will explore Linnansaari National Park and photograph the amazing landscapes and wildlife Saimaa lake has to offer. The tour starts in Oravi village at sunrise and a professional wilderness guide takes you by boat to the best locations in the national park. Locations are carefully selected as the most picturesque spots in the area. Locations change depending on the season.
National Park of Linnansaari consists of hundreds of uninhabited islands and islets. It is a home for the worlds endangered seal the Saimaa Ringed Seal, Ospreys, range of water and forest birds, beavers as well as for several mammals.
The tour starts from Oravi at sunrise (around 4am- to 6 am) so that we are able to see the nature waking up. In the morning the animals are more active, the sun light is amazing and after a chilly night we can experience a magical mist over the lake.
