Golden Eagle

It almost takes your breath away when a golden eagle comes into land just a few feet in front of the hide.
Seeing an eagle up close with their huge wingspan,
beautiful markings and sharp look is an extraordinary experience.

Birds of prey and game in snow cover

In northern Gästrikland stands a special built forest hut where many bird species can be seen during the winter.

In the sparse pine forest  many bird species thrive, such as greater spotted woodpeckers, grey woodpeckers and black woodpeckers.
In addition to golden eagles, goshawk and white-tailed eagles sometimes land. The fox can tiptoe past and the squirrel often jumps around between the trees.
Great tits, blue tits, ravens, nuthatches, coal tits, tree creepers, crested tits, bullfinches, bramblings, robins and willow tits are also continuous guests.

Guests are picked up at the agreed time (no later than 1 hour after sunset).

Our activities are done on the conditions of nature and there is no guarantee of what we will see / hear / experience.


We meet at 19:30 at Wild Nordic’s gallery (please respect the arrival time). After a short drive and 250 metres on foot, the guide show you how everything works in the hide. You are left in the hut to wrap your self in the warm sleeping bag and hopefully sleep well in the fresh air.


Tree stumps and bird perches are found around the hide for the best possible chance to see and photograph the birds. The eagles land at about 20 metres away and the small birds are fed about 4-7 metres from the hut. The hide has 10 photo windows with camouflage nets on the outside. For photography, 200-500 mm is suitable, but other lenses can of course also be used. There are bean bags and smart tripod solution for your camera (gimbal heads, swing tripod and arca swiss plates).

The hide has 2 beds, 140×200 cm and a simple toilet. Blankets, sleeping bags and pillows are available, even warm slippers of various sizes and the floor has an insulating mat with rugs on top. There is also a gasolin heater, heating pads and warm ponchos. No electricity and no stove or way to heat up food. There is bad connection in the hide (ok for calls and texts but unstable internet).
