What we do propose you?
On our website you will find a wide range of birding tours and outings, from local birding immediatly around Barcelona to tours exploring Mongolia, Uganda or Oman to name a few.
Worldwide famous by its open bussiness philosophy, colourful street life and great cultural and architectural heritage, Barcelona is a prime destination for millions of people. However, the city has also an important natural heritage nearby and it is one of the few large European cities offering a variety of ecosystems which are easily reached in less than two hours by car. These include high mountain grasslands, endless pine, oak or fear forests, large coastal wetlands, extensive steppe-like plains, and a large variety of more or less dense and low garriga srcublands.
We offer a wide selection of tours which will allow you to explore all of these areas, from one day to four days long trips, to explore the most important birding hot-spots in Catalonia and the Western neightbouring region of Aragon. Wallcreeper, Lammergeier, Pin-tailed Sandgrouse, European Roller, Moustached Warbler, Dupont’s Lark, Citril Finch, Spectacled Warbler, Little Bustard, and Audouin’s Gull are only a few of the most sougth after species for the clients interested in these outings!
At sunset you will stay in a rural accommodation placed in wonderful settings. The exclusive guest houses we use offer the possibility to enjoy European Roller, Montagu’s Harrier or Lammergeier from their gardens! We do our best to ensure that the accommodation we choose during our tours in Catalonia (and, if possible, in any other country around the world), offers traditional home-made cuisine using local products.
When taking a look in our website you will find a fine selection of tours exploring some major birding destitations all over the world. Some of the most popular tours include The Gambia (3 issues), Morocco (7 issues), or Finland (5 issues).
These tours are planned to go for all major specialities in the area to explore but always taking special care on what’s commoner in the area.
In the last years, we have been organising exclusive tailor-made birding tours for pairs and individuals. These tours can be arranged to explore every destination to be found on our website, and even longer!
At least, we keep organising all our birdwatching experiences from an ethical point of view that we can summarize in a single sentence: The less disturbance we do in wildlife, the better the tour becomes.
