For the 2019 season, we decided to improve our Bears of Finland photography tours by visiting not just one but two different centres. During this photography tour, our group travelled to Viiksimo to photograph adult bears, wolf & wolverine before moving on to Suomussalmi to photograph super cute bear cubs with their mothers.
Most providers are charging around £1800 for 4 or 5 nights in the bear hides in Finland – we give you 7 overnight sessions in the Finnish forest hides to photograph wild brown bears, wolverine & more – for £1099 – there is a but though …
We have been informed that after 31st October, our cost price rises substantially – so the price from there onwards will be £1999 – we are including the accommodation, meals & airport transfers in the special price of £1099 instead of £1999, but we can only hold this price until until 31 October 2017
If you would like to head to Finland to capture images of the wild brown bears, wolverine & more – view the details here – we need a £400 deposit from you to hold your place – the balance is due at the end of March 2018!
We are pleased to announce a new photography tour for August 2018, & to bring you a special offer in the form of both a reduced price & a reduced deposit for the period between Christmas & New Year. Why not head to British Columbia with us in August 2018 for our new 11 day Grizzly Bears of the Taku River, British Columbia Photography Holiday, where we will transport you in by helicopter to a remote camp on the bank of a beautiful river – right in the heart of bear country? We virtually guarantee that you will return from this trip with a portfolio stuffed to the brim with fantastic images of adult bears, the younger bears, the landscape & more besides.
You will be completely immersed in the world of the Grizzly Bears of the Taku River from the moment you arrive, living within their forest environment from dawn until dusk. Bears of all ages, both male & female, will be present throughout your trip, so there are hugely diverse bear photography opportunities for you to utilise including the chance to photograph adorable grizzly cubs as they explore & learn to survive.
All internal transfers, accommodation & meals at the camp, which is beside the Taku River, are included to make things as straightforward & enjoyable for you as possible. The location of the base for the trip can only be accessed by helicopter, & we also include this exciting experience in the price of the trip which offers you another unique view of the landscape.
The nature of the trip means group sizes must be kept small to allow for the best possible experience for photographer & animal alike, so booking early is essential.
Other trips to this venue are typically charged at £7999 for 6 days in the bear camp, we have negotiated a special rate allowing us to include 8 full days in the bear camp for the same price.
… The best part of this, we require a smaller deposit than normal to reserve a place – normally we require 20% – in this case, until 1st January 2017, the deposit is locked in at £1250.
