The Red Rock Nipigon Eagle Photo Safari
Wilderness, wildlife and wonder are the order of the day on this Nipigon River Adventure. The fall salmon run on the Nipigon River attracts a large number of North American Bald Eagles from late September to early November. You will be guided to a blind on the banks of the Nipigon River that is guaranteed to produce many excellent, up close and personal photographic opportunities of these amazing birds as they feed and interact.
Spaces are limited for this truly unique wilderness experience so book early. Groups are kept small (Maximum 4) in order to preserve the wilderness experience. Bring a laptop to share your images and experiences during evening sessions at the lodge.
