What is the setup of the eagle hides?
It is a timber hide, quite spacious with a stove and toilet. It is built to take on four photographers at one time, the photographers get two photo holes each in different directions. All photo holes have a mount for tripod heads but there are also bean bags if needed. Transport out to the hide is with car and then by foot for a short walk, about 400m. The hide is visited at dusk and you stay there till darkness falls again.
What should I bring with me?
Including your own camera equipment, please bring: good sturdy boots and warm clothes (there is a heater in the eagle hide that can be around 10 C inside) and light torches.
What are the chances of photographing golden eagles?
We are photographing wild animals so unfortunately there are no guarantees but if you are willing to stay for 3 days in the eagle hide then you have a good chance of photographing eagles.
When is the best time to visit to see the Northern Lights?
The Auroral activity is cyclic and peaks every eleven years. Good conditions involve dry weather, cloudless skies, no full moon, with the best time of year being from September to April, peaking during the winter months. It can flare up from time to time, and at any time during the dark night hours.
