Wildlife And Birdwatching Tours Slovenia
We are a young and new company, which has in 2018 started working in the field of photo tourism. The Fotonatur team is comprised of young and experienced birding Slovenia adventurers, which all have something in common: the love of nature and animals.
The owner of the company, Janez Žalig, is also an experienced photographer. He travelled across numerous photo tourism destinations around the World. His biggest wish is to present Slovenia to the World. With its numerous animal species and diverse nature, it’s one of the more beautiful countries in the World.
Our Mission: To care about nature and wildlife. To introduce birding Slovenia to photographers and show him all the secret corners of our beautiful country. We want to work together with NGO’s, which are working towards the preservation of animal species and nature. With the help of photo tourism, we want to raise awareness and be a socially responsible company, which will help NGO’s and work towards the preservation of nature and animal wildlife.
Our Vision: To work together with the best within this field and develop photo tourism in Slovenia.
Wild Slovenia: Capture the beautiful wilderness of Slovenia. Imagine spending time in a photographer’s paradise, hunting photos in peaceful, pristine natural surroundings. Joined by an experienced local guide, you patiently wait for your next great picture, be it of a bear, in the vast forests of Loški Potok, a chamois, deer, capercaillie or black grouse in the mountainous Koroška region or rare birds such as the hoopoe, European bee-eater, little bittern, common moorhen or black-winged stilt in the lagoons of Ormož or the landscape park Rački ribnik. You smile as you remember the exquisite homemade food and pleasant dreams in your comfortable accommodation. You can have all that in just three days. Come photo-hunting in Slovenia!
Slovenia is small but perfectly formed, encompassing different environments within its borders. In a relatively small area, you can find wildlife from the Alpine, Mediterranean, Karstic and Pannonian world, and photograph them. Pristine and preserved nature offers an abundance of animal species, including some that are rare and endangered. Photo-hunting in the eastern part of Slovenia, known for its outstanding beauty and tranquillity, is special: it’s a wonderful experience that no-one should miss. Local guides with years of experience in photo hunting will give you the best advice on getting incredible footage of the wildlife while you enjoy the comfort of spacious and thoughtfully placed photo-hunting grounds that give you all you need for the ultimate photo experience.
In addition to the incredible wildlife footage, you will be able to enjoy our diverse gastronomic offer as every region showcases its specialties and flavours. In the Koroška region, you will be offered “štruklji”, (local dumplings), and smoked meat delicacies, and when you are in Prlekija, you will be able to taste its exquisite wine and other culinary specialties, such as “tünka” (preserved pork). And then you can take a well-deserved good night’s rest after such a tiring, but also the exceptional day, rest in accommodation such as tourist farms or a unique glamping environment with a hint of tradition, surrounded by pristine nature.
