ICELAND Through The Lens Photo Tour
(Greentours UK)

May 24 to Jun 01, 2018

Leader: Tony Beck

The primeval volcanic landscapes of Reykjanes and Hekla, Iceland’s famous Fire Mountain, the immense Mýrdalsjökull ice-cap and the infamous Eyjafjallajökull volcano, all provide a spectacular backdrop for this superb wilderness and wildlife photographic holiday.

The breath-taking scenery of the Snæfellsnes Peninsula offers a kind of Iceland in miniature. We can expect close up photographic opportunities of the many seabirds that nest in the immense colonies on the black basalt cliffs whilst Arctic Terns hang in the air just feet from our heads. We’ll have great opportunities to photograph beautiful species like Red-throated Diver, Harlequin Ducks, Red-necked Phalaropes, and many others. Our aim is to capture perfect image of the stunning wildlife and scenery of this charming and remote island. Photo Instruction provided throughout this tour.

Churchill in Summer
(Quest Nature Tours)

Jun 29 to Jul 04 2018

Leader: Tony Beck

The Hudson Bay coast around Churchill springs to life in late June with the onset of the short sub-Arctic summer. We have planned our trip to coincide with the mass congregation of Beluga whales in the Churchill River Estuary, the peak of breeding season for birdlife and tundra wildflower blooming.

Our tundra excursions take us into prime breeding territory for several shorebirds where we’ll witness behaviours and vocalizations rarely exhibited during migration. Elegant Whimbrels, Stilt Sandpipers, and American Golden-Plover are special sights, along with Red-necked Phalaropes and Pacific Loons in small lakes and ponds.

Cost: Approx: C$3374.75

In Search of Whoopers
(Quest Nature Tours)

Oct 05 to Oct 09, 2018

Leader: Tony Beck

The area around Saskatoon is one of the most reliable areas on the continent to see the tallest bird in North America, the highly endangered Whooping Crane. This is also the perfect time to observe one of the world’s best birding spectaculars: the fall waterfowl and shorebird migration. We’ll see snow-white Tundra Swans with 2-metre wingspans and flocks of up to half-a-million Greater White-fronted, Snow, Canada, Cackling and Ross’ Geese on their way south from arctic nesting grounds. The sonorous calls of the huge flocks of Sandhill Cranes will always attract our attention as they fly overhead to their nearby feeding grounds. Saskatchewan’s backcountry is the perfect place for our prairie waterfowl and wader spectacular.

Cost: C$1880
