Seeing a goshawk up close with its beautiful coverage
and sharp gaze is an experience beyond the ordinary


In northern Gästrikland there is a beautiful forest glade where many bird and animal species thrive.
During the winter, the water station is often visited by goshawks, but many other animals also come to renovate their food stores.

You dont have to be a photographer to enjoy the  wildlife that comes really close.

Some conservation work has been placed within the location such as bird boxes, nest protection and habitat enhancements.

The area is a private land with no traffic which guarantees that wildlife is not disturbed.

After a 10 minute drive and 100 metres by foot, the guide will show you the hide and on your own you begin the exciting search.

You can arrive in the evening at 19.30 and sleep in the hide. Or you can arrive early in the morning. 

You will be picked up at the latest one hour after sunset. 


There is a long one way glass (spy glass) 180 x 20 cm where you can see the wildlife, but they cant see you. Under the glass there´s 2 photo openings. The small wildlife is often 5 metres aways, gos hawk 5-15 metres away. For photographing, a lens within the range of 200-600 mm works well and a zoom is the best option. Bean bags are provided and also tripod heads with arca swiss plates (gimbal head and swing tripod)
