Brown bear photography holiday in Alaska
From
US $4,995
excluding flights
Memorable parts? We spent almost every available hour looking for, finding and photographing bears. Being able to be so close to them, to watch their behaviour and get such good pictures in the process was amazing. It felt safe yet the bears were in their normal habitat, and we were not confined to a hide or platform which made the experience incredibly special. Tips? Be prepared for all kinds of weather, both in terms of clothes and camera gear, as you will go and stay out even... (more)Cornelia Kinley

From
£3,065

Memorable parts? Difficult to choose 1 part. We enjoyed sea kayaking in Ucluelet, sitting watching the views with our tea picnic on Pyramid island in Jasper. Our black bear watching in Tofino and Whale watching excursion in Victoria were great fun too! Tips? Those keen on whale watching, should book their tour with eagle wing and keep a spare day the next day. As in our tour, we did not see any whales on our scheduled excursion. Eagle wing let us come back the following day for free... (more)Payal Mehta

I loved this tour - it was amazing! Being able to travel Alaska in a converted school bus, with amazing guides and a fantastic group of like minded people, made for an incredible trip.

Since this was my first trip on my own I felt very comfortable with the holiday providers as the owners were the people directly running the trip. They were always available to answer questions both before and during the trip. I would not hesitate to recommend this company to anyone looking for an exciting overland tour of Alaska (and Canada too!). (more)Julie Woods
This is the best holiday my partner and I have ever been lucky enough to have. We thoroughly enjoyed it and it exceeded our dreams. If anyone is thinking of seeing Alaska and considering camping, this would be the tour to choose. (more)John Cracknell

Meeting the bears and being able to really make a difference to their day-to-day lives with enrichment, feeding and cleaning; some of the things we were doing (such as enrichment to keep the bears active and happy) wouldn't get done unless we were there to help out! (more)Heather Reynolds
We were so close to the bears and keepers that you feel part of the project rather than just a short stay helper. I think we were really lucky... to have the baby bear (Lola) arrive when we were there too. (more)Anon
