Description

Golden Eagles Sweden Photography

This exciting 5-day Golden Eagle photography holiday, at the world famous Conny Lundstrom’s site; includes a 4-night stay at a wonderful Swedish cottage, lying in the foothills of the Mountains. The dates have been specifically chosen for the best activity, golden eagle breeding times and snow covered grounds in Winter and busy feeding period in Autumn as the eagles prepare for winter. Although this means cold weather will be present so clothing correctly will make a comfortable trip. The hide has been carefully chosen for the best photographing conditions in a landscape of mountainous coniferous forest with segments of bog. The hide itself has a log burning fire, Tea/Coffee facilities and toilet.

Other species in the area beside Golden Eagle are White Tailed Eagle, Goshawk, Gyrfalcon, Raven and Fox among others. We can also, if lucky, see and photograph the spectacular Aurora Borealis or the Northern Lights.

Our itinerary is subject to change & is to be considered provisional, however change is unlikely.

Accommodation
Modern Swedish Villa made for overnight stay with full access to kitchen, toilet and shower facilities. There is a small grocery shop in the village available. The house was Timbered in the 18th century. It comes with a simple comfort but high coziness standard. Heat in the house is maintained with firewood. The house also has a view over the lake with the white mountains in the background. Cozy dining hall with an open fireplace.
