Next Level Safari: Extreme Tours With Wild Animals

Underneath the layers of technology and civilisation, we all just want to run free with untamed wild animals. At least, some of us do. The others would prefer to push chihuahuas in strollers. For those of us who want to feel the adrenaline of swimming with sharks and running with leopards, rather than the safety of a traditional sarafi, good news! Extreme tours are on the rise and you can fulfil your dream of having adventures like Eliza Thornberry (minus coversing with animals).

Finland Is Officially The Best Country For Wildlife Travel

Finland has been named the best country in the world for wildlife travel by the True Luxury Travel's Global Wildlife Index 2019. The factors that made it win against it's 106 competitors included its "high levels of environmental sustainability, its unique and varied diversity of species, beautiful natural landscapes, and conservation efforts". Honestly, this is no surprise as Finlandis home to a number of animals that I, the author, have never seen in my life (and would love to see). Besides, 69% of the country is forest and the rest is filled with crystal clear lakes and quaint towns. Sounds pretty ideal to me. 

To show you just how diverse Finland's wildlife is, we've included 15 of the coolest animals that call Finland home. If you visit Finland, you're bound to see a few of these creatures. I'd be pretty happy if I saw one, to be honest!

You Thought That Sting You Got At the Beach Was Bad? Try One Of These On For Size

You've probably seen at least a few of the pictures of exotic locales with some of the craziest, and sometimes dangerous jellyfish in the world. But this monstrous specimen was found in the English Channel of all places, off of the coast of Cornwall. Better still, the jellyfish appeared out of the murk on the last day of Wild Ocean Week, which was a day to promote local fish species and understanding of the species living all around them, as well as to raise money for the Marine Conservation Society.
