Eye to eye with an eagle

 
It is breathtaking when a golden eagle comes in for a landing only a few meters in front of the hide. To see an eagle up close with their huge wingspan, beautiful markings and sharp gaze is an extraordinary experience.

 

      

Out in the wilderness, there´s a purpose-built forest cabin where many birds can be seen during the winter.

Meet up at Wild Nordic at 19.30.

After a short car transport we walk 400 metres and the guide will show you how everything works in the hide. After some coffee, snacks and talk you will be left alone to sleep in the warm sleeping bags.

(If you prefer to sleep at Wild Nordics place, it´s possible. Basic and comfortable bedrooms with shared bathroom. Accomodation 300 SEK/person. Then you have to wake up around 3 hours before sunrise. For the best chance to see the eagles we have to go to the hide in the dark so any eagles should not be frightened.)

The hide is on a small hill and has views in three directions. It is in a mossy pine forest with
large boulders and has many species of birds, such as different types of woodpecker, eagles and small birds. The fox can tiptoe past and squirrels often jump around between the trees.

Posts and bird perches are posted around the hide for the best possible chance to see and
photograph the birds.

The hide has 9 windows / photo openings and large bunk beds with pillows and blankets and a
simple toilet. There are bean bags for cameras and also swing tripods. 200-500 mm lens is good for taking photos.

At an agreed time around sunset, you are collected by the guide after a hopefully busy bird watching day.

The hide has 4 seats. Price per person: 1900 SEK

Bookable 1st of December – 1st of March 2020.

The golden eagles are seen around 80% of the days.
