Boreal Predators Photography

From: £Contact us

Join award winning wildlife photographer Bret Charman or Emma Healey on a five-night tour to northern Finland’s remote boreal forest in search of Europe’s large predators.

The European brown bear has lost much of its former range across the continent, however along the Finnish-Russian border there is a wealth of untouched forest that is home to a healthy population of these charismatic mammals. Over the last 30 years local people have learned to live alongside the bears and a few pioneers have built hides to watch and photograph them.

Please note: Wildlife is extremely wary around people, and patience is an absolute must – you can be in the hide for up to 14 hours each night. The exact itinerary may change depending on individuals’ preferences and our success in the hides – if we are lucky with a particular species, individual group members may subsequently choose to spend time in whichever hide they like.
