Golden Eagle hide 4 days package – Economy

Photograph the Golden Eagles in Utajärvi! In this four-day economy package, the price is only €132 / day / person! You can also share the package with a friend.


We have been feeding Golden Eagles in Utajärvi (close to Oulu in Finland) for 15 years and Eagles are very used to come to this site. Eagles come close (25 meters) and they are feeding at eye level with the photographers and the feeding site is very open and therefore excellent for flight photography. Background is distant and this site has front light most of the day.

Usually, snow comes to the ground in November-December. In winter, on the best days, up to 10 eagles gather to feed. In January, the day is short, so the eagles often have fights for food, and the time spent in the hide is at its shortest. Towards spring, the amount of light increases and the days get longer. At the turn of February-March, the territory couple drives the other eagles away, already preparing for the coming spring’s nesting.

There is no feeding for the small birds in front of the economy hides, but you can bring food for the small birds with you if you want. In this case, e.g. Sparrowhawk (in autumn), Eurasian Jays, Great -, Blue- and Willow Tit etc. might visit. Squirrels also regularly visit the feeding areas in the area. A fox, Wolverine and Wolf have also visited at the site.

Price: 525 € / 4 days / person

You may use all the four days yourself or share them with your friends (so two person can stay 2 days together). Our economy eagle hides seats five photographers (3+2) comfortably and everyone has two shooting holes.

Price includes first morning guiding to the site, training to use the heaters and a natural bait for the first day. 4 days in our economy hides (132 € / day / person). Please notice that our normal price for one day in Eagle hide is 160 € / day / person (this does not include guiding to hides)

This package is valid through Golden Eagle season from 15th September until 31st March.

Reviews & Experiences

"It was a breathtaking experience to watch the Eagle Owl. Thanks for making it possible! All worked fine and the Owl visited the feeder about five times. We got some nice pics."

"At the beginning of June, we had the wonderful experience to "meet" the Eagle Owl in your hide. We will forever remember the moment when the Owl arrived for the first time! It came back several times during the night to eat a bit of the hare. When the Owl wasn't there, we had a lot of fun photographing a large diversity of songbirds."
