Wild Viewfinder Tours

Based in Sherwood Park, Alberta

Why do we travel? I travel to explore, to learn, to experience, to meet and understand new people. I collect experiences, not things. Wild Viewfinders works hard to put spectacular scenery and memorable wildlife into your viewfinder. We do day tours, weekend tours as well as week or month long tours of Canada or USA. I can arrange all inclusive tours or day rate tours with expenses. I specialize mainly in wildlife/scenery road tours. I am based in Sherwood Park, Alberta, about 1/2 hour from Edmonton International airport and within easy access to National Parks as well as several provincial wild areas and miles of beautiful rural farmland. People who have lost their mobility but not their desire or love of rural scenery and wildlife may enjoy an enjoyable day trip to refresh their souls. Seniors and visitors to our region may be our clients. I prefer small groups of 6 or less in order to make a tour enjoyable for like minded friends or family. Tours may last for a couple hours or a full day where we will enjoy visiting historic sites, small local museums, provincial parks, cultural events, wildlife and bird watching tours and tours of some industrial plants may also be arranged. We can stop for lunch at a local restaurant or pack a picnic lunch. Wiener roasts, healthy lunches and barbeques can also be arranged. We can do some hiking or walking in our parks to enjoy the outdoors and bird and wildlife that we may see. I am a very flexible person who can adapt quickly to whatever a small group would like to see or do. I am a wildlife photographer and writer so really enjoy taking small groups who just want to get out to do some wilderness photography. We don’t have to go far to find great subjects. I can help with learning basic skills of getting better photos and enjoy discussing how better pics might be achieved. I am also a learner and explorer enjoying these trips. Perhaps a nostalgic visit to the family farmsite, school or small town you were raised. You may want to design a tour that I may look after the logistics and driving. Would you want to go to an auction sale, rodeo or music/cultural festival? Maybe you would like to go sit and relax beside the river or lake someday. Our tours will begin as I pick you up at your home or hotel at Edmonton or Sherwood Park area. Depending upon which tour we will do, your clothing should be casual and comfortable. Bring a jacket as day temperatures can be variable. Footwear should also be comfortable and if we are walking on park trails, should be sturdy and expect to get a bit muddy or dusty. I will supply insect repellent and bear spray if needed. Hat and sunglasses are always a good idea along with your own binoculars and camera gear if you have them. Please let me know if you have allergies and bring your own medicine, including epi-pen if required. I will try to have water and snacks but again, let me know of allergies in your group. These are non smoking and non alcoholic tours until after hours. Outdoor meals will consist of items common to the area we are travelling through. Various meats, bar-b-que, salads, fruits and desserts would be typical. Please let me know if you would like to try something special or new. We may also stop at local restaurants or farmers markets for meals. You may want to carry money for souvenirs and personal items, certainly carry identification, cell phone, heath care cards or health insurance papers, medications and who to contact in case of emergency. Carry your note book and pencil to record your day if you like. I often carry guide books, maps and bird ID books for the regions we are travelling. It is your tour and I am very flexible, so bring what you think you might need to make your day enjoyable and memorable. Tours will include return transportation, park entrance fees, some binoculars, and trail meals where indicated as part of the tour. We limit the number of guests in order to provide personal attention, comfort and to minimize environmental disturbance. Tours do not have to be complicated or expensive to be enjoyable.

Bull Moose - Wilderness Tours Edmonton

Robert Scriba

_DSC6327After raising his family on an acreage in Northern Alberta, Bob and wife Fay moved to Vancouver Island for 5 1/2 years. He took the Coastal Adventure Tourism course at North Island College which taught him varied courses from wilderness first aid, navigation on water or land, weather, sailing, boating, interpretation skills, group management, food safe and many others designed to keep guests safe, fed and entertained. For 5 seasons Bob enjoyed working at Knight Inlet Lodge as a wilderness guide to guests from around the world. Our common bond was the wildlife, from grizzly bears to birds and whales along with boat tours up spectacular coastal fjords, scenic islets and small settlements with their colourful people living there. He enjoyed working with guests to get fantastic photographic memories, add to their bird species lists and of course spending time with the beautiful grizzly bears who live and earn their living along the west coast. Bob and Fay moved back to Alberta to be closer to their family and new grand children.
