2023 Wild Shetland Photography Tour

22nd to 29th May 2023

Join professional wildlife photographer Steve Race on a wildlife photography trip of a lifetime to the wildlife rich Shetland Islands.

The Shetland Islands are situated on the northern extrimity of the British Isles. A remote archipelago of over 100 Islands, much of it lying beyond 60°N. A land where the summer sun barely dips below the horizon and the scenery and wildlife combine to create an inspiring and unforgettable experience, it is a place that few people visit only once…

Imagine yourself tracking a family of wild otters as they go about their daily business along a beautiful and remote stretch of coastline… and then later that day marvelling at the intensity of life in one of Shetlands bustling seabird colonies.

In partnership with Shetland Nature this unique 8 day photography holiday is designed to showcase the very best of Shetland and its incredible wildlife. This small group tour features a range of photography assignments co-led throughout using the expertise and local knowledge of our Shetland Nature guides and wildlife photography tips and techniques from Steve Race. Shetland has so much to offer from Gannet feeding frenzy boat charters, Otter photography, seabird colonies and moorland waders. By working a group rotation for the Otter photography we are able to pair guests off so that guests experience a level of exclusivity throughout the trip.
