Not that close. Maybe 20m in the last shot. The long lens makes them look closer than they are. (You're not allowed to approach the bears, and you can't let them get too close to you).

The shots above were taken in Tempelfjorden and Billefjorden which we travelled to by snowmobile. We were accompanied by a qualified guide at all times.
