Hides at Lake Hornborga

  • 09 Aug, 2022

Lake Hornborga is a bird lake all year round. Spring (March-April) is of course the time of the cranes, but it is also a chance to see thousands of whoopers, coots, ducks and waders.


It's possible to rent a hide at Trandansen, in the southern part of the lake, and watch the cranes from there. 

Information about the hides

You have to be set in the hide at 4:30 am and are asked not to leave until the supervisor indicates that it's permitted to do so (approx. at 9 pm). This means that you cannot leave or be outside the hide between 04:30 am and 9 pm.

It is only allowed to stay one person in each hide. Visitors must make their own arrangements for footstools, sleeping bags and similar personal equipment. Keep in mind that it can get very cold in the hide, since it is not insulated. You must be over 18 to book and sit in a hide.

Price 950 SEK / day.
