The perfect opportunity to capture the reflection of our wildlife.

Mirror, mirror

In the forest of Northern Gästrikland stands a special place.
This one of a kind water station attracts the interest of the living creatures of the woods.
They often come and ask to the reflection in the ponds water “who is the fairest of them all?”
A sensitive question which you might try to answer while sitting in the hide.

The hide is not only for photographers to enjoy. 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.

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 and one swing tripod)
