13 – 17 September 2024

Autumn is a great time for Golden Eagle and Sparrowhawk photography in Oulu. A little different, this season provides possibilities for Eagle images that stand out from the crowd – the background trees and ground vegetation glow in beautiful autumn colors and the occasional morning frost makes everything seem even more fragile and beautiful. 

Finnature’s new Golden Eagle hide is really comfortable with a great heating system, standing height and good office chairs. This luxurous hide is only available for the Finnature’s photograhy groups and brings your hide experinece to the new level!

This tour is more than just Golden Eagles. In September young Sparrowhawks are chasing Eurasian Jays when they practice hunting. So a lot of action at the hides! And furhermore September should be the most active time for Northern Lights.

Combine this tour with our other autumn photography tours: Birds & Mammals in Autumn or book Eagle Owl hides for extension!

Reviews & Experiences

"Many thanks for an enjoyable tour and all your hard work to provide an amazing experience. Photographing Eagles, Sparrowhawks, Grouse and the odd Jay or two!!, the warm comfortable accommodation, the food (thanks Sunna) and all the attention to detail, which have given me unforgettable memories.

Jari and Kaisa, thanks for all your input and company, the time was over all too quickly. Looking forward to the next visit, in the not-too-distant future!"

"As the name of the tour was indicating, this tour was really amazing! Beyond any expectation! So many photo opportunities, unbelievable! Well balanced, with the focus towards the different species. As well the hotel selection was great, sometimes just a pity that we did not have the chance to enjoy the hotels even more.

Both of our guides, Jari and Kaisa, were great guides, safe drivers and very much focused to the clients! Thanks for guiding this tour!"

"I would like to thank you and your staff for the great organization of the last 4 days at Villa Finnature. I enjoyed it very much.

Not only your tangible love for the nature of Finland and its bird life – but also your professionalism and dedication in the implementation of the ‘Golden Eagle Tour’ has inspired me very much. The care of us guests was perfect.

Special thanks to Sunna, who cooked during the 4 days extremely tasty and lovingly cooked for all. It was fantastic! "

"We did a spring photography tour to Finland with Finnature last week. Week was great although very cold - -28 degrees on some mornings was not normal for this time of the year! So Black Grouse were not active. But instead, the group visited Finnature’s Forest feeder hides for Goshawk and Eagle Owl. The group told that Finnature’s Forest feeder is the best place in the world to photograph Goshawks!"
