We have runned dozend of photographic wildlife trips to Alaska inthe last years with great success.

With our guide, Javi Montes, an experienced photographer that has been in Alaska in multiple occasions, and with our refined logistics in the area, we are sure of offering one of the most spectacular and vibrant trips of the market.

Our Alaska photographic trips combine exclusive grizzly bear photographic seasons in Kodiak or Katmai, with visits to Denali National Park searching mooses, Bald eagles, lynx and wolves, and navigations in Kenai Fiords national Park searching whales, orcas and marine otters.

No doubt, this is one of the best itineraries for catching in our lens the immensity and beauty of Alaska in only 13 days, with a reasonable price.

The main attraction of this trip is the possibility of taking pictures of grizzly bears face to face in some of the loneliest and best preserved rivers of the region, with small groups, and flying daily to the areas with best densities of bears.

The guide and pilot assist us to get closer from the bears with safety.

We can not lose one minute, the wild nature of Alaska is waiting for us.

This trip is specially focused on wildlife photographers, with one more flight for grizzly bear photography, a logistic conceived for its requirements.
