In the autumn, the bears are very active and eager to eat up before winter sleep. They are active for a large part of the day so despite short days there is a great opportunity to get them in photo light. After last night, it will be breakfast and journey to Turku. Night boat to Sweden and arrival in Kappelskär on the morning of September 26.
