Bear Safaris

Join a bear safari to observe Brown "Grizzly" Bears in western Canada and northern Finland, and Polar Bears in Churchill, Canada and the high Arctic of Svalbard.

Bear Safaris

Our bear-watching holidays focus on tracking brown (“grizzly”) bears in the boreal forests and taiga of northern Europe and Canada, as well as polar bear tracking in northernmost Canada and the Arctic circle (Svalbard, Norway). Bear safaris can be experienced as both private tours and as group departures where you'll be accompanied by other travellers.

Family Safari to Tanzania

We had an incredible time in Tanzania; the entire trip met and often considerably exceeded our expectations.
