Arctic diving & Polar Bear Watching Expedition
From
€3,090
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

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

Grizzly bear watching vacations in British Columbia, Canada
From
£2,950
including UK flights
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

We got to see some beautiful places and animals, ate really well and generally just had the best time. (more)Sasha Lim
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
Brown bear watching vacation in Bulgaria
From
US $1,475
excluding flights
Memorable parts? Spending time in the bear hides and being able to watch mother and cubs for over an hour. Tips? Be realistic about what wildlife you are going to see; i.e. walking in largish group (12 + guide) and wariness of local wildlife. Definitely take binoculars for watching bears / other wildlife from hide. Local benefits? Use of small village hotel, local driver and nature reserve guides benefitted local people. Because more and more people are visiting the area with... (more)Simon Knock

Finland wildlife vacation in Wild Taiga
From
€1,265
excluding flights
Memorable parts? Watching wolverines and bears very close. Tips? As you nearly don't sleep at night, it's better to organize a transfer to the next hide instead of driving yourself the hides are very different in term of distance to the bait but also in comfort( some are heated and have good sleepingfacilities, others are terrible and are the same price!!) Local benefits? The owners are all local people so certainly a yes. Overall rating? It's a wildlife tour and that's... (more)Guido Rommens

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

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...
