Pöllöelämys Ruissalossa! / Owl experience in Ruissalo!


Turku, Finland with Mikko

Finnish, English, Spanish

10 spots per experience



What are we going to do?

Muiden mennessä nukkumaan aloittavat mystiset pöllöt liikkumaan äänettömästi yön pimeydessä. Mikä olisi jännittävämpää kuin kävellä pimeässä metsässä etsimässä salaperäisiä pöllöjä?

Pöllöelämystä lähdetään hakemaan Ruissalon upeisiin lehtometsiin, jossa pesii Suomen tihein lehtopöllökanta (noin 10 paria). Retken aikana yritetään kuunnella huhuilevia pöllöjä sekä etsiä niitä taskulampun valossa puiden oksilta.

Retken hinta on 30 euroa / henkilö ja mukaan mahtuu maksimissaan 10 henkilöä. Hintaan sisältyy lyhyt esitelmä Suomessa havaittavista pöllölajeista.

Muista pakata mukaan reilusti seikkailumieltä, otsalamppu, lämpimästi vaatteita sekä maittavat eväät.

Retki alkaa auringon laskiessa ja sen kesto on noin 3 tuntia.

Pöllöt ovat aktiivisimmillaan helmi-huhtikuun, mutta pöllöelämys on mahdollinen lähes ympäri vuoden.

When most go to sleep, the waking hours for some are just about to start.

Owls, the mysterious predators, start their silent movement within the darkness.

What would be more real and cool than finding owls from your local forest?

The Owl Experience takes you to the beautiful forests of Ruissalo in Turku where have the densest population of Tawny Owls in Finland. Sounds unbelievable but is very much true. There are 10 owl couples living on this small island. During the trip we will listen to owls' hoot and try to spot them with our flash lights from the tree branches.

This experience costs 30€ per person. We will take maximum of 10 people per trip. A presentation about owls in Finland is also included in the price.

Remember to pack your adventurous mindset, a headlamp, some warm clothes and a tasty snack if needed.

You are very much welcome to join the Owl Experience!

Very good experience.
Saw my first tawny owl in wild and even if i would have not seen or heard any owls the experience would still be good. Nature in this area is very beautiful and Mikko's passion towards the subject is great.
Thank you! Would suggest this experience.

Finns are crazy! Forest + night + owls = authentic Finnish experience to me! Mikko really knows his owls. There will be some walking and you do need to pack some patience as this is not a zoo and owls don't come landing on your arms... I got to see a female tawny owl in its natural environment and it was beautiful. I also found this experience a bit romantic because you get to hear the hooting between female and male owls! Definitely recommend to all nature lovers and not only!
