The purpose of the project is to offer the opportunity to get out into nature and see wild animals, inform about how the animals live and a chance to see something new.
The purpose also includes that people from all over the world and the disabled should be able to get close to our Swedish animals close to life in a discreet and careful way.
The goal of the project is:
- An existing workshop to develop and store the hiding places and other materials that belong to the business.
- A working hiding place
- A functioning website with booking service and web shop
- Create collaborations
- Develop marketing materials
The purpose and goals of the project are also stated in the application.
The project consists of investment in suitable photographic equipment, preparation of a workshop, marketing, construction of a hideout for game viewing and own work.
WORK AROUND HIDDEN AND HIDDEN AREA
During the project's progress, the hiding place has been completed. A dass has also been put in place as guests usually spend the night in hiding.
On site, it has also been cleared to create a better view and a nicer photo environment in the areas where the bears like to move.
The hiding place has been given a new foundation and moved a bit to create better photo opportunities and light.
New panel and new roof have also been fixed. Inside the hiding place, it has been renovated so that the hiding place would feel more homely.
A bed has been built in the hiding place.
On the way up to the hiding area, a wall gate has been put down to prevent uninvited guests from disturbing next to the hiding area.
WORK AROUND THE WORKSHOP
The work around the workshop has moved according to plan.
-New floor has been cast
-New interior walls and ceilings have been regulated
-The whole building has been insulated
-OSB boards and plaster have been mounted on walls and ceilings
-Filling and painting of walls and ceilings has been done
-Port has been fitted
-El has been pulled
-Investments have been made in the project such as Släpvagn & Snowdog to be able to transport bait material from the slaughterhouse and then further out to the hiding area.
-Camera and drone to create high quality images and movies for advertising material
-During the project, we would try to find different partners. During the project, we have created collaborations with 2 different actors within the municipality.
We also have a dialogue with a larger travel company that wants to arrange trips for groups to different hiding places in Sweden.
However, the hiding place is a little too small to be able to offer this company what they are looking for. So the plans are to try to meet it in the future with two new hiding places that can accommodate up to 5 people in each hiding place.
In the slideshow you can see a selection of photos that I took during the project.
