The hide is large enough to comfortably accommodate 2 people, along with all their equipment. Its large window (1,8m x 0,7m) offers great opportunities to observe the behavior and take pictures of these beautiful birds.
Outside there are several solar LED projectors, which are activated at dusk, and have the minimum intensity necessary for observation and focusing. The photographs are taken with the aid of flashes (1,2,3 or 4) placed outside the hide. The perches are located 12-14m away from the hide, so it is advisable to use lenses between 200-400mm.
The guide will drive you to the location about 1:30h before sunset (according to the time of the year).
The sessions last approximately 3 hours after sunset, and may end a little earlier. Although several species of birds of prey can be seen during the day, it is at dusk and during the night that the Eagle Owl can be observed.
You can purchase:
- 1 session 250€ per person
