Utajärvi, Finland

We have been feeding wintering Eagles in our feeding site for over a 15 years now, and we are proud to say that this is the best location for Golden Eagles photography in Finland. The best time for action shots is mid winter. The Golden Eagles visit our feeding site very actively in mid winter: in January there can be even up to 10 individuals daily!

Our hides provide excellent opportunities for a great diversity of images of Eagles in flight, perching, and most importantly – Golden Eagles in action!

Finnature’s Golden Eagle hide is really comfortable with a great heating system, standing height and good office chairs. This luxurious hide is available only for Finnature’s photography groups – it simply brings your hide experience to the new level!

We have three full days at our professional Eagle photography hide. Other possible species in winter time from the hide include Raven, Eurasian Jay, Great-Spotted Woodpecker, Crested Tit, Willow Tit.

Landcost price: 1995 € / person

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!"
