Photography tours with Jari Peltomäki
Amazing Hokkaido, Japan 13-22 February 2017
Experience the magic of Hokkaido
This beautiful wintery island offers great photography opportunities. Amazing numbers of very approachable birds can be found. It is almost unbelievable how many Steller’s Sea Eagles and White-tailed Eagles you can see at the same time or how close to swans you can get!
Birds are the main target in this tour but also the landscapes in north Japan are like fairytail. Imagine Swans in the misty lake, mountains in morning light or simple Japanese trees in the middle of the fields. All this makes Hokkaido very popular destination amongst photographers.
Experience also Japanese culture with extremely polite people, wonderful food and onsens. Something what you will never forget!
This will be my 8th photography tour to the northernmost island of Japan – Hokkaido.

Antarctica 14- 27 November 2017
Experience the magic of Antarctica
We invite you to join us on a 14 days (13 nights) photo expedition to the Antarctic Peninsula in November 2017. Finnature partner WildPhoto Travel will be chartering the entire ship, M/S Polar Pioneer, for photographers only expedition early in the season. There will be a maximum of 54 guests, together with 3-4 WildPhoto guides and Jari Peltomäki as Finnature leader. Get ready for an exciting photo expedition to Antarctica.
The main focus on this expedition will be penguins, seabirds, seals, landscape and ice. This expedition is early in the season so we expect nice icebergs and winter landscape. Very few photographers have visited Antarctica in early November, and we believe this will give you great photo opportunities. Antarctica is one of the hotspots for photographing penguins, seals in great landscape. We will be landing early in the morning to get the best light conditions, which you will miss on ordinary tourist trips.
We will schedule longer stops than usual when going ashore in order to provide participants with enough time to get excellent pictures. We use 5 zodiac boats to get ashore or when searching for the wildlife at sea.
With 9-10 full days near the Antarctic Peninsula, this expedition is for nature photographers who want more quality time with the antarctic wildlife and landscape.
This will be my second expedition to Antarctica.
