Join NaturesLens to capture images of the charismatic Dalmatian Pelicans, in Greece, during the Dalmatian Pelicans of Greece past event. This past event is of day duration on a Full Board, Non-Shared basis & costs £1149 per participant.

Join NaturesLens for a unique wildlife experience, getting up close & personal with the beautiful prehistoric bird that is the Dalmatian Pelican; capturing them on camera within their natural habitat of beautiful Lake Kerkini in northern Greece. This trip encompasses 4 full days spent getting to know this unique landscape, offering extensive opportunities to photograph these incredible birds, as well as neighbouring wildlife such as the Pygmy Cormorant & the majestic Greater Flamingo.

The Dalmatian Pelican is, by a small margin, the largest of the Pelican species, as well as one of the largest living bird species on earth. These magnificent birds have been in decline in recent years, partly due to habitat destruction on the part of us humans, but thankfully the population at Kerkini has prevailed & still thrives within this unspoiled haven.

This trip is best suited to those of you with mid-level to advanced photography skills looking for a new challenge. We pride ourselves on offering something special to clients in comparison to other trip providers, so we have coordinated this itinerary to allow you to capture these magnificent birds at sunrise & sunset.

Highlights of the trip include 4 boat trips on to the lake on consecutive days, 4 shoreline feeds offering you the chance to get up close to these magnificent birds & witness their feeding behaviours, & cosy accommodation in a nearby hotel as an oasis from the harsh winter conditions. All the details are taken care of for you so that you can relax & enjoy this unique wildlife photography adventure.

We will be up & at the lake before the sun comes up to see the Pelicans at first light, & after the morning’s activities we will break for a warming lunch as a much needed break from the cold, discussing what the rest of the day will hold. We will then embark on an afternoon of further exciting photography opportunities, remaining on the shoreline of the lake through to early evening to make the most of the changing light conditions. When the day comes to an end, we will all return to the comfort of our hotel to relax in front of a roaring fire, freshen up & discuss your achievements from the day.

Our photography guides will lead you through, providing tuition as needed & helping you develop your skills. They will help you shoot these birds in wide & close up shots; capturing them in movement whilst feeding & fighting for fish, interacting with each other or in flight with the impressive backdrop provided by the lake & surrounding snow-capped mountains.

Our group numbers are strictly limited to allow for the highest quality experience for everyone involved, & as this photography is seasonal we can only offer this trip to a small number of lucky individuals each year. Book early to avoid disappointment!

Our group will travel throughout several different regions, including the mountainous area around Yudanaka in central Japan, & north of the mainland to the island of Hokkaido, giving you an insight into the variety of landscapes & wildlife which exists throughout the country, made even more photogenic by dramatic winter conditions.

Our trip offers enthusiastic wildlife photographers the chance to rise early for 2 dawn visits to the famous red-crowned crane roosting site; spend 2 days at the Akan red-crowned crane feeding centre; & spend 2 days observing the beautiful whooper swans which inhabit Lake Kussharo.

Not only this, but our trip is unique in offering 6 boat trips on the drift ice of the Nemuro Strait to photograph the steller’s sea & white tailed eagle populations. These excursions will give you unrivalled access to the native wildlife at each location, providing ample opportunity to obtain incredible images.

Our trip begins in Tokyo; from there we transfer to Hokkaido, the most northerly island of Japan, which holds the most remote & only true wilderness in Japan. North of the island, the Shiretoko Peninsula is recognised for its world heritage site status, as the landscapes of dramatic coastline & soaring mountains are stunning, giving you the perfect backdrop to achieve editorial quality images of the wildlife inhabitants. As we travel across the island, you will have the opportunity to photograph red-crowned cranes, black-eared kites, whooper swans as well as white tailed & steller’s sea eagles as we cruise through drift ice environments which surround the island & across additional feeding sites on the Nemuro Peninsula to the east of the island.

We give you a second day here so that you have the chance to fine tune your photography having become more familiar with the environment & the behaviour of this species.

Japan is an extraordinary country, providing wildlife photographers with unrivalled opportunities to capture uniquely beautiful photographs.

Join NaturesLens on a wild Canadian adventure, travelling into the depths of Yukon wilderness to capture unrivalled images of the native grizzly bear as it feeds on spawning salmon in the Fishing Branch River. The specific conditions & sub-zero temperatures in & around this river transforms grizzlies into ice bears, as their fur becomes frozen & frosted; completely changing their appearance as photography subjects.

Only a fortunate few can witness this spectacle annually, & the unique nature of this wildlife photography experience means that we can only offer a tiny number of participant places on this trip, so booking early is essential.

Join NaturesLens to capture images of top level predator on the banks of the Fishing Branch River, in Canada, during the Ice Bears of the Yukon past event. This past event is of day duration on a Full Board, Shared basis & costs £8499 per participant.

NaturesLens invites wildlife photography enthusiasts on a journey to a national park in the Yukon region, Canada’s wildest & most unspoilt territory, to capture awe-inspiring images of the native grizzly bears as they feed on spawning salmon. This natural wonder only occurs for 6 weeks of the year, so the lucky few who get to witness this event will take home memories to treasure for years to come.

The location for this wildlife photography holiday lies within a snowball’s throw of the Arctic Circle in the Fishing Branch Protected Area, where the Vuntut Gwitchin First Nation & the regional government have joined hands to set aside 2,500 sq. miles of pristine wilderness as Yukon’s largest territorial park.

The season to witness this phenomenon is short, just six weeks long, in which the grizzlies gather to feast on the spawning salmon. Their feeding behaviour is intense during this period as they are attempting to put on enough weight to last them through their hibernation in the nearby limestone caverns over the winter months & the Fishing Branch River is the key to it all.

Fed by underground springs, it remains unfrozen all year round, & every autumn 35,000 chum salmon make the 1,500-mile odyssey from the Bering Sea to spawn in its pure waters. At times there are so many fish in the river you feel you could walk across it on their backs without getting your feet wet.

The salmon in turn attract the grizzlies, as many as 40 every season & as they wade through the river an extraordinary transformation takes place. Within minutes their wet fur freezes in the sub-zero temperatures & they become ice bears to the delight of wildlife photographers.

Being allowed into the park is a rare privilege, as the region is very sacred to the indigenous Vuntut Gwitchin communities who reside in the area, & put great ancestral & cultural value on the land & the environment within the park. The 2,500 sq. miles which make up the park was set aside by the government & local communities as an area for preservation, & the opportunity to capture its rarely disturbed wildlife population on camera is not one to miss out on. A guide with in depth knowledge of the wildlife & culture of the Yukon national park will lead you throughout the experience to aid you in obtaining editorial-quality images that truly convey the magic of this exceptional wildlife spectacle.

Our trip includes a 2 hour chartered helicopter journey from Dawson City to Fishing Branch River, which takes us across a far-reaching emptiness of deep-frozen rivers & boreal forests bounded by range upon range of white mountains punching to the sky. You will also enjoy 7 nights full-board accommodation in a rustic log cabin situated moments from the bank of the river; immersing you in the action yet providing a cosy retreat from the harsh conditions outside.

As well as cabin accommodation, all internal transfers are taken care of for you, to ensure that the whole experience is truly memorable & you are able to focus on capturing stunning photographs to add to your wildlife portfolio. Group numbers are strictly limited, so book your place now to avoid missing out!

NaturesLens invites wildlife photographers of amateur & semi-professional ability to join them in escaping to the beautiful Andalusian town of Adamuz in Sierra Morena. Adamuz is a thriving hub of native species. The various mammals & avian species that co-exist in the area is incredible.

This is the same location that we make use of during our spring trip, Eagles & Raptors of Spain, but at the time of year that this trip is being run, our target species are something altogether different! You will spend four nights, five packed-full days taking the opportunity to spend time in hides, in cars & on foot, hopefully enabling the capture of stunning images of wolf, ibex, golden eagle, imperial eagle, wildcat & of course, the Iberian Lynx.

Join NaturesLens to capture images of Iberian Lynx, Wildcat & both Golden & Imperial Eagle, in Spain, during the Wildcats, Eagles & the Iberian Lynx of Spain past event. This past event is of day duration on a Half Board, Non-Shared basis & costs £1499  £1399 per participant.

It has taken years to habituate the lynx & wildcat to the presence of the hides & we are very excited to be able to offer you the opportunity to capture all the target species within their habitats & interacting with one another.
With a selection of comfortable hides throughout the area at our disposal, we will provide you with the best photography opportunities possible.

Small group sizes allow you to capture spectacular images from the best angles, with photography guidance provided by Victoria, the accompanying guide from NaturesLens where needed.

This leads to facilitating stunning shots from the car for the wolves & each of the photographic hides that you will have access to. From the majestic Imperial Eagle to the small, but ferocious, wildcat, you should leave with some amazing photographs & experiences. To give the best chance of capturing award-worthy images, we include three hide sessions with the lynx; the Iberian Lynx is a naturally shy animal, but these hide sessions are proving to be extremely productive.

NaturesLens provides a trip of 5 days duration packed with photographic opportunities, where your photography will benefit from unrivalled access to hides, placed strategically within the landscape to provide the optimum opportunity to photograph species such as golden eagle, imperial eagle, kestrel, lynx & wildcat. You may even spot other species at some of the hides, including red fox & Egyptian mongoose.

This is a unique opportunity to photograph some of Spain’s most impressive, yet elusive species.

Accommodation is provided on a full board basis – from a light breakfast through to a 3-course dinner with a picnic lunch in between. Everything is taken care of for you so that experiencing & photographing the species & their environment is all you need to worry about.

This trip suits keen photographers with a desire to experience the magnificent wildlife that this region of Spain has to offer; capturing editorial-quality images of a range of both mammal & bird species to treasure for years to come. Places are highly limited to ensure the best experience for every guest, so book early to avoid disappointment.
