Brown Bear and wildlife watching/photography hide
We offer the possibility to spend an unforgettable night in our Brown Bear and wildlife-watching hide. The hides are situated in Alutaguse , which is an area mostly covered with western-taiga forests and vast bogs in N-E of Estonia – home to about half of Estonia’s 1000 Brown Bears .
The hides have windows on both sides of the hide . Northern windows overlook a taiga forest and the most common mammals to see would be Raccoon Dogs and Brown Bears . Woodpeckers, Red Squirrels, Nuthatches, Chaffinches, tits, and Jays visit the feeders. [...]Brown Bear and wildlife watching/photography hide

Southern windows offer a view of a stream and a flooded meadow. Sometimes Elk , Wild Boar , and Roe Deer come to feed on the meadow and European Beavers or Otters can occasionally swim by. During summer months, the creek can almost dry up. Ural Owl and Red Fox come here to hunt for mice and sometimes also Goshawk, Sparrowhawk, Golden Eagle, White-tailed Eagle, and bussards come by and look for prey. Rare visitors to the scenery include Badgers, Wolves, Lynx, and Mink.
There is also a very sensitive microphone outside the hide. It catches the soundscape of the surrounding wildlife and you can listen to it through speakers installed inside the hides. You can hear birds singing in the spring, branches cracking under bear feet, or animals going through the water. Our guests have also heard Elk mating calls, Wolves howling, and Raccoon Dogs fighting with each other. This makes the whole experience even more immediate and powerful.
There’s a good blog article from Reverie Chaser from the summer of 2021 giving a thorough overview of their experience and lots of good tips from the autumn of 2023 by the Nature-Watching in Europe blog .
