Ideal for wildlife photographers is a bear watching break in Finland, right in the thick of prime brown bear territory. Staying in specially designed hides, you stand an excellent chance of photographing not only bears but other wildlife such as wolverine, lynx, capercaillie and goshawk.

In Canada, visit some of the most breathtaking locations in the Canadian Rockies whilst developing your skills behind the lens or head up to Churchill on a polar bear adventure offering unique opportunities to capture the world’s largest land predator on ‘film’.

Head to Lapland in search of the northern lights perhaps visiting Abisko National Park in Sweden or Tromso in Northern Norway and aim to capture these ethereal lights on camera against a backdrop of mountain landscapes.

Or join a special Antarctica voyage as a rare total solar eclipse is expected to occur over one of the most remote places on earth.
