The delightful and colorful Ruff feeding in a small water pool in front of the hides by the most important wetland in Finland – Liminka Bay in Oulu area. Get a diversity of Ruff images by joining this short break for keen wildlife photographers!

The feeding site for the Ruff and other waders. Here, a shallow water pool opens in front of the hides making this site great for reflection photos – if the wind is calm. In the bright evenings one will get beautiful backlit images of feeding waders from these hides. The Ruff can do some lekking on this site making it possible to have nice lekking postures of the males in the water. Fighting action is also an opportunity here – are you fast enough to capture it?

Price includes: land transportation from Oulu airport, all meals, accommodation, Finnature guiding and use of professional photography hides

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!"
