Photographing in Pohtiolampi

Rent a hide for photography 

Pohtiolampi offers great possibilities to photograph or to take videos of Ospreys from the hides around the feeding pond

There are 11 photography spots in six different hides around the Osprey pond. All hides are well equipped with wall mounted camera stands, sandbags etc. In hides 2 and 3 there are two modest beds for resting and an electric outlet for charging the camera batteries. 


An amateur or professional photographer can book all the photographing spots for her/himself for 1-6 days at a time and is allowed to share them with 1-3 fellow photographers.

In the High Tower there are 4 camera openings equipped with camera stands, sandbags etc. (Similar to those in Bird Hides.) Detailed instructions for High Tower photographers, see here.

The High Tower and the public tower are located about  40 meters from the ospreys’ feeding pond. You can book the High Tower also in advance using our online booking system. These spots can also be booked in the Cafeteria during opening hours.
