Overview

See Golden Eagles at close quarters in their natural environment

Our Natural Wonders Photographic Holiday takes place near Skelleftea in Sweden.   We spend 3 full days in typical Swedish style in a purpose built Swedish Log Cabin, complete with wood burning stove, access to tea, coffee, snacks and a toilet whilst we watch and photograph Golden Eagles at a time of year when there will be snow and lots of other activity from other species of birds.   We may see Ravens, Jays, White Tailed Eagle, Goshawk and Red Fox among others.

We may also have a chance to photograph the Aurora Borealis or the Northern Lights from our location.   Our accommodation is set in the village just a few minutes from the hides which are set in a beautiful forest location.

This is what our clients say:

Golden Eagles in the Snow.  I am just back from a fantastic trip.  Excellent board and food and comfy hides, with excellent company.    I found this trip so rewarding,with plenty of help during the day and then in evening processing help.

Description

This trip will leave you speechless with the beauty of the Golden Eagle so close up.   They are literally just a few metres away.   The setting is fabulous and at this time of year will have a snowy backdrop.  This with the magical light provides a great opportunity for you to obtain a stunning set of images before you return to the UK after your three full days in the hides.

It will be cold but the hides are warm inside thanks to the wood burning stove.  Janette will ensure that it is lit and well stocked so you will not be cold.    The hides are located just a short drive from your accommodation and it is no more than a 5 – 10 minute walk to the hides each day.

All meals and transfers are included in the price so all you need to do is concentrate on your photography.  Janette will also be with you at all times to help you with any questions that you may have.   We can also spend the evenings post processing if you like!   Janette uses Lightroom for all her post processing and is more than happy to share her knowledge with you.

  • Will I see Eagles?

    Most likely yes, it is a great time of the year to see them but remember that they are wild birds so sightings cannot be guaranteed.

  • Will there be snow?

    There should be at this time of year!

  • How much are the flights?

    This will depend on when you book and which airline you choose.   Normally we fly from Heathrow to Stockholm to join a domestic flight to Skelleftea.   The price range for a return flight is about £300 to £700 depending on when you book, what packages you book and the like.   It is very cheap if you can manage with just hold luggage.   Also cheaper if you do not book food on the flight.

  • Will I be cold in the hides?

    The hide that we will use has a wood burning stove installed.   Janette will light it and keep it going so you will not be cold at all!

  • Where do we fly to?

    Skelleftea, Sweden.  We normally change at Stockholm for the domestic flight.

  • What else might I see?

    Ravens, Foxes and woodland birds.
