Trip Info

There are a number of places in the Northern Hemisphere where you can see grizzly bears but none are as extreme as the encounters in Kamchatka in Eastern Russia. This is an expedition for serious wildlife photographers and nature lovers that are looking for a wilder experience.

This is your chance to spend time literally among scores of grizzly bears as they forage with their cubs.

The bears gather in large numbers around Kuril Lake each August to gorge themselves on spawning salmon. The oil rich fishes are an important source of calories that will help sustain them through the long Russian winter.
Although most of the trip involves time with the bears above water, during the expedition, each guest will also have a chance to try photographing bears as they hunt in the river. In order to do this in relative safety, we have a cage that can be partially submerged so that the bears can come extremely close when they become curious.

Let Big Fish Expeditions help you plan your next memorable experience.
