NW of Spain is one of the most unknown areas of the Iberian Peninsula. Legendary for its culture, traditions, gastronomy and unique wines, it is also an excellent area for birding and hiking. Its variety of landscapes and wildlife make it perfect to visit. In a very short time you can reach from the best point for the observation of migratory seabirds – the Cape of Estaca de Bares – to some of the most unknown mountainous areas of the Iberian Peninsula, or enjoy the seabirds aboard the boat Chasula on a pelagic trip, or travel deep river gorges.
Birding.gal knows this area perfectly and can provide you great birdwatching tours, observation of mammals and other wildlife through tailor made trips to any of its multiple destinations in the area. Just tell them what you want to watch and they will draw up the best trip to get it.
Birding.gal is involved in conservation projects and in conservationist causes years ago. Their activities are absolutely respectful and ethical with the environment. They do not carry out activities that could compromise the survival and welfare of birds and other wildlife. Their treatment is personal and close, they seek to help local communities through the birding and the tourism of nature.

Birding.gal and its main company (Habitaq SL) are involved in several conservation subjects in the NW of Spain. But the main issue that occupies the most of their time and efforts in the spring is the monitoring of the Montangu’s harrier populations. In less than a decade this species has suffered a great decline of its populations due to many different reasons.
In Galicia, Birding.gal try to figure out the causes and to alert to the local authorities by monitoring the breeding pairs and the habitat changes. This initiative is born and maintained without public funding and it is leaded by people of Birding.gal. Results have been explained in different ornithological meetings across Spain.
