The Great Snipe – Evening hike spotting the lek


The male jumps, drums constantly with his beak and chirps during the bright summer night – he plays and tries to impress the female. With its infinite energy, The Great Snipe gives us one of the strangest, most fascinating and rare dramas in the world.

About the area- Jämtlandsfjällen
The area around famous Lake Ånnsjön are a great habitat for migration birds. Although this evening has its own star- The Great Snipe. The rare bird are red-listed and not to easy to spot. If we are lucky we find the leking birds, get to see and hear when the male trying to impress the female. 

This is not a hike where we count birds, this bird hike is suitable for nature lovers who want to learn more about The Great Snipe and have a fantastic experience in the mountains. We walk at a leisurely pace, about 4 km to the evening’s reconnaissance site.

Do you want to spend the night? I suggest a night at Enaforsholms Fjällgård
