Wildlife watching

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

In the morning, we gather in the Wild Nordic photo gallery for coffee and practical information.

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 basic toilet. A 200-500 mm lens is best suited for photography, but naturally simpler cameras are also good to go. Beanbags and clever tripod solutions are available. Isolating mats, a petroleum gas heater, reusable hand and feet warmers, waking bags and blankets are there to keep you warm.

The hide has 4 seats and can be booked from 1 December 2018 to 25 April 2019; all days of the week except Mondays. 1500 SEK/person. Children of all ages are welcome when accompanied by an adult. Ask about family offers.

To consider:
- Do not use rustling packaging (eg, chip bags). Pack of such, lunch boxes / plastic cans.
