Birdwatching & Wildlife Tours

Bulgaria is a paradise for birdwatchers. Lying on the Balkan Peninsula, one of the most strategically important points for bird observation in Europe, Bulgaria has taken a lot from everything: waterfowl, waders, mountain and meadow bird species typical for Central and Northern Europe, passerines and raptors characteristic of the Mediterranean, steppe and even semi-desert species influenced by the proximity of The Northern Pontic regions and Asia Minor. The variety of habitats that could be found in the country is amazing. When we add the outstanding location at the end of the natural bottle-neck, formed by the second biggest migratory route in Europe (Via Pontica) we end up with a complete complex of conditions for a superb birdwatching almost all the year round, including a checklist of more than 420 species discovered by now.
