BLACK GROUSE AND CAPERCAILLIE - KINGS OF THE SWEDISH FORESTS
Besides the beautiful 'Golden eagles and more...' trips to Sweden we now also offer a very nice extra option. Now it is possible to experience the courtship of black grouse and capercaillie from very close range and of course to photograph it. This unique spectacle can be experienced from mobile and very good wooden photo cabins.
Besides the black grouse and capercaillie you also have a chance to see other species such as elk, reindeer, brown bear, golden eagle, white-tailed eagle, woodpeckers, etc. As an extra option we offer the possibility to visit the Golden Eagle huts after your stay in these huts. A unique combination with little sleep but many possibilities.
Important to know is that the focus here is on Korhoen, which certainly succeeds, and that everything is tried to make Auerhoen succeed, but that is certainly not guaranteed. Depending on their chosen ball spot, it may not be possible for some years. Photographing capercaillie birds is a difficult job, they show themselves at the end of the night and often in inaccessible places. So know that this is a challenge and that Auerhoen is not 100% sure.
THE HIDES AND ACCOMMODATION
Our cabins are located in a number of unique locations. You will be taken to your photo cabin in the late evening and spend the night there; the capercaillie will be at the courtship already in the night. Of course we provide a mattress and sleeping bag.
The hides are 2 x 2 meters large and made of a solid wood. They have both high and low photo openings which gives you the necessary flexibility depending on the snow depth. You can use your own tripod, screw your tripod head onto a beam, or a rice bag which is present in the cabins.
COMBINATION WITH GOLDEN EAGLES
As you are in the same area as our Golden Eagles trip, you can use the Golden Eagles hut after the Korhoen photo sessions in the morning. This has been a great success for many years and is a fixture. A unique combination of spectacular species.
COSY SWEDISH ACCOMODATION
You can choose between March and June, best period end of April / beginning of May
You will stay in a house of the photographer-guide on the spot. It is comfortable, cozy and you will be warmly welcomed. Based on full board. So you can discover Swedish cuisine from the first row.
