    I am reborn! Simply the best vacation I have ever been on
    Some great stories to tell the grandchildren. Would recommend to a friend
    Very enjoyable
    It was OK
    A bit disappointing really
    Polar bear watching cruise in Svalbard, Norway
    From
    4,250
    excluding flights
    Memorable parts? The whole thing was amazing, being able to go out to parts of Svalbard that other ships can't get to was fantastic, and the wildlife that we saw there was the overall highlight. Tips? Book directly with the operator (the actual company that runs the trip - rather than an agent) to ensure that you get the correct packing list, pick-up information, flights, etc. Local benefits? Yes definitely, the operator are obviously very concerned with preserving the nature... (more)Renny Gye
    Arctic diving & Polar Bear Watching Expedition
    From
    3,020
    excluding flights
    Memorable parts? All of it! The extremes of weather, the diversity of animals, the quality of the accommodation and facilities, and something you can't plan for - new found friends! Tips? Don't set your heart on seeing anything specific. Be prepared for the changes in weather. It's not as challenging as I expected - to take account of the huge spectrum of ages and abilities. But most of all HAVE FUN! Local benefits? Not so much the local people, though we did buy a lot... (more)Lisa Thomas

    I loved every second of my trip - the people, the country, the bears I worked with... (more)Louise Bednarz
    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

    This really is the most memorable vacation I've had in many years (more)Rowena Dark
    The most amazing experience. Thoroughly enjoyed the whole two weeks and wished I had booked to stay there longer. (more)Louise Jones
    Brown bear tracking in Northern Greece
    From
    599
    excluding flights
    It did not have one single highlight -the entire trip was enjoyable. (more)Christine Singer
    Seeing a brown bear was the highlight of the vacation but this was definitely the icing on the cake. The friendly people, wonderful mountain scenery, incredible views, amazing walks, butterflies, orchids and peace and quiet made the vacation memorable at all times. (more)Liz Pitt

    The bear watching and having a close encounter with a white-tailed eagle. (more)Robert Bagley
    Almost whole tour of ours was exciting as every mile / kilometer of our drive in FINLAND was mesmerizing and exciting. All the activities of sports was new and knowledgable for us. (more)Nehal Lekhadia
    we had great time and would definitely go back....seeing the wolverine, bears and willow grouse (more)Mohni Gujral
    Alaska adventure holiday, salmon run
    From
    US $3,300
    excluding flights
    Since this was my first trip on my own I felt very comfortable with the vacation 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 vacation 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
    Difficult to pick one part as the whole trip was memorable. Alaska is such a scenic destination. Camping brings you closer to nature and the wild camping was in isolated, awe inspiring places. I particularly enjoyed the sea kayaking, around beautiful islands with sea otters everywhere. (more)David Conway
    Canadian wildlife & Vancouver Island holiday
    From
    US $3,329
    excluding flights
    Best bit: Having an amazing guide who delivered so many interesting facts, and always had a smile and a sense of humour. (more)Barbara Jackson
    The trip did not disappoint. We saw about ten [black bears] including several within camera range. We also saw Elk, Orcas and a range of other interesting mammal and bird species. (more)Paul Butler
    Grizzly Bear watching tour in British Columbia, Canada
    From
    CA $1,890
    excluding flights
    Seeing the bears in their natural habitat is fantastic. The operators are great and the food was wonderful. (more)Susan Shedda
    The most exciting part of our vacation was viewing the (many) grizzly bears in a natural environment without any interference with nature. Specifically, it was thrilling to see several mothers with cubs! (more)Suzanne Wafer
    Northern Greece wildlife conservation tour
    From
    900
    excluding flights
    Memorable parts? Going on a walk with the conservationists up the various mountains and then trying out Greek drinks such as their coffee and "Mountain tea" that was made from local plants. Tips? To know what the weather is when they go, so they can decide if they want to be there during hot weather or somewhat cooler. Local benefits? Not directly us being on the trip, however the conservations as a whole are doing really good work preventing the death of bears while still... (more)Ruairi Benn
    Wildlife cruises to Spitzbergen, Greenland and Iceland
    From
    US $6,000
    excluding flights
    Memorable parts? The wildlife, the scenery, the ice, basically all of it Tips? Spend as much time on deck, you never know when you may see something, really take in every moment we are privelidged to be able to travel and see such wonders. Local benefits? I am sure any form of tourism,brings money into the local economy, and as travelers we see the impacts and changes on our planet ,If we trully open our eyes and take it on board, then in any way we can and however small...

    Churchill polar bear tour in Canada
    From
    3,995
    excluding flights
    Memorable parts? From the moment we arrived in Churchill until we left! We saw a polar bear being released from the holding facility and flown off back to the wild, mothers and cubs, young bears 'play-boxing, a large male bear falling through the thin ice and the Northern Lights. All the staff were fantastic, particularly our wonderful free-spirited guide Leah Okin Magowan. It could not have been better!! Tips? Go go go! Local benefits? The local company have worked, and...
