Owl photography in Finland


Finland is famous of having 10 different Owl species breeding in good vole years. Oulu and Kuusamo areas are good for eight (8) Owl species; Eagle-, Great Grey-, Ural-, Hawk-, Short-eared-, Long-eared-, Tengmalm´s- and Pygmy Owl – they all breed in this region in most years.

Finnature arranges workshops for Owl photography mainly during the winter time (February- March), when owls can be hunting in the open fields. Please notice that owl situation and availability vary between years!

Please notice that Owl photography workshops will be announced after we know for sure that the Owls are photographable!
