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.
In the morning, we gather in the Wild Nordic photo gallery for coffee and practical information.
After walking a short distance through the woods, the guide shows you to the hide, and on your
own, you begin the exciting reconnaissance.

After a short car transport we walk 400 metres to the hide. The guide will show you everything in the hide and then you start the exciting watch on your own.

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. There are bean bags and swing tripods for your camera equipment.
At sunset, you are collected by the guide after a hopefully busy bird watching day.

There are insulating mats on the floor, a gas heater, slippers, hand/feet warmers and good blankets.

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

Children of all ages are welcome when accompanied by an adult. Ask about family offers.

For the best chance to see golden eagle / white tailed eagle we go to hide in the dark (about 1.5-2
hours before sunrise) so any eagles should not be frightened. Guests are picked up at the
agreed time, around sunset. 

The winter season 2017/2018, the golden eagles were seen 85% of the days.
