Wildlife Holidays

I'm thrilled to be part of the guiding team for NaturesLens. Below you can see the trips I will be guiding along with links to the full details and how to book. They are small group trips where you will get your own room and there is no single supplement and meals included. I will be on hand to help as much or as little as you like, offer tips and tricks on photographing different subjects in different situations and how to make the most of light, habitat and when and how to add in additional light. If you have any questions please do get in touch.

You can see the full list of trips I will be guiding here:

Trips Guided By Victoria

Lammergeiers and Golden Eagles Of Spain

5th - 9th December 2019 - FULL

3rd - 7th December 2020 - SPACES AVAILABLE

Join me for this five-day trip which will take place in the Catalonia region in north-east Spain & will focus on that region’s most emblematic species, the Lammergeier & Golden Eagle.
You will have the opportunity to photograph Lammergeiers feeding on the ground & in flight, with the spectacular mountains of the Pre-Pyrenees as your backdrop. The Lammergeier is a rare & magnificent bird that is in decline throughout most of its ancient European habitats. The 90 Lammergeier territories in the French & Spanish Pyrenees represents more than 75% of the total European population of this extraordinary bird.

Lammergeiers and Golden Eagles

White-Tailed Sea Eagles of Norway

27th January - 1st February 2020 - SPACES AVAILABLE

Smøla has the highest breeding density in the world for this species; you will spend 5 nights capturing images of the population of this species as they thrive in their picturesque natural habitat, both on land & above the frozen waters that surround the island. Highlights of the trip include alternating days between boat trips on to the frozen waters to photograph the White-tailed Sea Eagles in the best light available as the swoop & dive above the seas, & two days capturing images from a hide offering you the chance to get up close to these magnificent birds & witness their feeding behaviours. The boat trips are conducted on a specially designed boat with sides that can be lowered, this allows for photography just a few centimetres above the water-line; whilst the hide, shown in the photo above, has been sunken into the ground next to an eagle drinking pool with medical-grade clarity glass, heating & a toilet.

In addition to White-tailed Sea Eagles, this period is perfect for wintering sea birds like auks, eiders, velvet scoter, long-tailed duck & cormorants. Cosy accommodation nearby provides an oasis from the harsh winter conditions.

Reptiles and Amphibians of Bulgaria with NaturesLens

Join me as we guide you for this 7 night/8 day photography trip to Bulgaria, in search of reptiles and amphibians. We will be on hand to find and help you capture some amazing photographs of these incredible animals.

Our main targets on this tour will be the 20 species of amphibians & 37 species of reptiles, many of whom can only be seen in this part of the continent, thanks to Bulgaria’s bio-geographical location. We have timed our tour to coincide with the beginning of these species’ reproduction cycle since this will give you the best chance to find them. We will explore different territories & habitats from the Danube river to the Bulgarian-Greek border, from river banks in low parts to high mountain lakes, cliffs, karst & forests.
