Nature photographer Lassi Rautiainen has been photographing bears since the 1970´s. He began to run wildlife watching tours in 1988 as more and more people wanted to come and see the bears for themselves. Today there are customers from all around the world. Clients are accommodated in Kuikka Wilderness Lodge in Kuhmo, and are taken to the hides to spend their nights photographing and observing the animals.
Wildlife Safaris Finland Ltd. is a family run business located in Kajaani. Besides arranging photo tours, it is a publishing house nature photo agency called Articmedia selling nature books, calendars and post cards.
