Eagles from boat will be runned from a special designed boat for photography. We have the possibility to lower the side so when you lay down your lens is just a inch or two above water level.

Fighting eagles!

The Alula hide is a custom built hide constructed after years of development and testing different solutions. The hide is lowered into the ground, giving you as a photographer a unique low perspective, the hide has electricity, one way glas, comfortable chairs, heated floor, sound recording system and a portable toilet system. In front of the hide there is a bathing pool for the eagles, and it is all leveled so they can't hide for the photographer.
