The trip will start from Helsinki where a pick-up will be arranged for you. From there we will drive for about 50 minutes to the costs of the Baltic Sea. There we will start hike 2 to 3 km long and during it you will be given tips and information about the basic settings of a DSLR camera. And dont worry if you don´t have a camera of your own. A camera with a zoom lens is included in this trip! You will get the pictures you take during the trip after the tour for your own use. The hike is done through forests and over beautiful cliffs (rich with deer, elk, eagles) in the area. There we will search for birds and other wildlife to photograph. Halfway to the walk we will have a snack at the top of a high cliff with amazing views around the area an the Baltic Sea. The tour will end back in Helsinki and you will be dropped off to your desired location.
I am the founder of the company "Helsinki Wildlife Photography". I started almost 30 years ago in birdwatching and soon started to carry a camera with me on my trips. I have excellent knowledge over birds of Finland and also other wildlife. On my countless trips in the wilderness, the best experiences were when I was with other people and got to share the exiting moments of seeing a rare bird or a huge elk. And afterwards going through the pics we got from the trips. That's why it felt clear to me that this is something I would like to do in a larger scale and share these experiences over and over again with people from all over the Finland and the world.
The drive to the destination will be through Finnish countryside. The hike itself will take place in different kinds of forest areas and beautiful cliff areas by the baltic sea.
You will need suitable clothing for the current weather. Outdoor shoes are highly recommended as we will walk in forests and cliff areas.
Please inform us about any allergies or special diets. The hike is unfortunately not suitable for children under 10 years of age. Please inform your pick-up location when booking.
