Frequently Asked Questions

Is the tour itinerary fixed?

The tour itinerary is set within the tour program as the basic outline but it may vary depending on the weather conditions. We’re trying hard to deliver you the best experience according to the actual situation. The tour itinerary is only set as the basic outline of the tour - it is not hardwired into the program because it largely depends on the weather conditions. It is in our best interest to try hard and deliver the best experience, in fair and foul weather, according to the situation we are facing.


Will there be any night photography included?

If the weather conditions are promising, we’ll squeeze in at least one shooting of the night sky. And if we’re lucky, we can even chase the northern lights :)


How difficult will the hiking be?

Most of the photo spots are easily approachable from the car, typically only a few hundred meters of walking distance. We can also organize a moderate hike during the photo tour to reach other great spots for shooting, but it’ll always be conditioned by the physical shape the other attendees are in.


What photo gear shall I take with me?

Digital camera (i.e. DSLR or mirrorless camera) with wide angle lenses highly recommended for landscape photos, and telephoto lenses comes in real handy, as we may spot wildlife - deer, moose, bears or coyotes. Good tripod and a remote shutter release for tack sharp pictures. Neutral density and polarizer filters (if you have any).


What clothes and footwear do you recommend to bring along?

We strongly recommend you to pack up some good sturdy boots and a waterproof raincoat with you. You know, it can get pretty cold or damp. This is Canada we’re talking :)
