Other species at the Bear hide
Other species at the Waterstation
Our activities are done on the conditions of nature and there is no guarantee of what we will see / hear / experience.
A modest sandwich is served on arrival and we go through all the practical information. After a short walk through the forest, the guide shows you the right way to hide and on your own you begin the exciting search. In the morning you will be picked up by the guide and breakfast buffet is served in the gallery.
When you feel ready, we go to the Water Station and decide the time together for collection. After 10 minutes drive and about 100 meters on foot you are there.
The bears usually stay 20-30 metres from the hide (as close as 6-7 metres). For photographing, 200-500 mm lens work well. Of course, it is also possible to use simpler cameras with shorter focal lengths, when shooting directly through the windows. The hide has 10 photo windows on 3 of the 4 walls. There are “bean bags” for the cameras in the hide and smart tripod solutions. Your own tripod heads/tripods do not work. Flash is not allowed.
At the Waterstation there are 3 different windows with the possibility to change the set up. Basic set up is a long one way glass (spy glass) 180 x 20 cm and 2 photo openings where you can place your camera. The water area starts right in front of the hide and goes up to 5 metres aways. For photographing, a lens within the range of 200-600 mm work well. Wildlife can be really close and a zoom is definitely the best option. Bean bags are provided and also tripod heads with arca swiss mount (one gimbal
Bear hide: You are safe in the hide. The bears are very shy and the smallest sounds can make them run away. The hide has 2 beds, 140×200 cm (you can lie 2 in 1 bed) and extra bed/bedsfor companies of 5-6 persons. There is a simple toilet. Blankets, warm ponchos and pillows are available, also warm slippers of various sizes and the floor has an insulating mat as well as rugs on top. There is bad reception in the hide (phone calls and texts use to work but unstable internet).
Waterstation: Suitable for 2 persons. The hide has been mostly built with recycled material. There is a customized foldable photo shelf so you can use your own tripod through the one way glass if you want to. The photo openings can be replaced by one way glass windows.
