What you'll do

We will be exploring a trail along a local blueberry farm in Coquitlam / Port Coquitlam. The hike is 8 kilometers and can take up to 3 hours depending on our pace.

The bears are hibernating until about April! But during late spring and summer, you might see black bears in the blueberry fields and sometimes they even cross the trail right in front of you. I've also seen all kinds of birds, including bald eagles, Kingfisher and blue herons. Turtles, deer, cougar, raccoon and coyotes live here too. I will take high quality professional pictures of my guests during the hike and share them online afterwards.

As much as I want you to see wildlife, I cannot guarantee that we will see any animals. They are a bit unpredictable. After all, they are wild animals! I went on dozens of hikes and showed hundreds of guests the amazing beauty of my "backyard". Every hike is different and we see different animals and scenery. One thing is for sure: It is beautiful! Even in the rain and the scenery is amazing! My guests really like the hike. Read my 90+ great reviews.

I'm an outdoor lover and passionate amateur photographer. Since I live in Metro Vancouver, I explore my area constantly trying to find great photo locations or trails for hiking tours and especially wildlife photography.

I've probably seen hundreds of wild animals over the time, it's always a great experience and never gets boring. I've seen bald eagles, herons, salmon, coyotes, cougars, black bears, deer, squirrels, raccoons, turtles, ducks. Whatever comes my way, I enjoy taking pictures of it with my camera and tripod and share it with the world via Instagram and Facebook or on my websites

Hagen ist sehr offen und zuvorkommend. Die Tour ist sehr zu empfehlen, auch wenn es natürlich keine Garantie gibt, Bären zu sehen. Wir hatten das Glück einen kleinen Bären beobachten zu können.

Auf der Tour mit Hagen haben wir vier Bären und einige Vogelarten sehen können. Wir haben uns zu jeder Zeit sehr wohl und sicher gefühlt. Die Fotos sind außerdem ein tolles Andenken! Ich kann diese Tour jedem empfehlen, der gerne einmal Bären in freier Wildbahn sehen möchte. Hagen weiß, wo sie zu finden sind. Vielen Dank für diese schöne Erinnerung!

We had a wonderful trip and saw around 10 bears, beavers, herons...etc. We had even one bear chase us before it moved off into the woods which was indeed an unexplainable experience. Hagen was a great host and also being an excellent wildlife photographer took a lot of pictures and shared it with us the same evening. He was very well versed with his subject and shared a lot of information about other places we could possibly visit. I would certainly recommend anyone who visits BC/Vancouver to do this trek with Hagen.....Thanks Hagen again

Wow, das war ein tolles Erlebnis und trägt sehr sehr viel zu einer positiven Erinnerung an diese Reise bei. Die Fotos die Hagen gemacht hat sind toll geworden und der Hike wurde deutlich entspannter, da ich selbst keine machen musste. Einfach toll und unbedingt weiter zu empfehlen. Toller Mensch, tolle Tour!

Wir haben uns sehr willkommen gefühlt. Hagen wusste, wo er die Tiere findet. Schön war es, dass wir auch Bilder, die er gemacht hat, am Ende erhalten haben. Kurz um. Jederzeit wieder.
