On this seal safari you will enter deep into the Linnansaari national park, to the home waters of osprey and the endangered Saimaa ringed seal. On this tour our main goal is to have a good look at the seals and get to know about their life! You will be guided by one of our wilderness guides specialized in lake nature. The Seal Safaris are made with open boats to give the participants the best possibility to spot the seals. We also enjoy a coffee break in the wilderness. Duration 3 hours.
On our seal watching trips we guarantee great nature experiences without disturbing the animals. During our seal safaris we watch the seals with binoculars without disturbing the seals resting on the rocks. We drive slowly and we do not make any unnecessary noise. We do not go ashore in places where we know seals loll.
All our seal safaris are done in small groups. In a small group and with an experienced nature guide the chance of spotting seal is very good.
