Bird Migration Flyways and Cetaceans Tour, Andalucía, Spain

Unique Bird Migration Flyways Tour

The 7-day Bird Migration Flyways Tour in Spain is a relaxing-paced set-departure tour (also available on request). This flyway bird migration adventure will take you to the Straits of Gibraltar which is just 14 km wide and provides migrant birds with an ideal crossing point of the Mediterranean.

A boat trip into the Straits itself will let you get close and personal with the many cetacean species that can be found in spring and autumn, such as Common, Bottlenose and Striped Dolphins and Long-finned Pilot Whale – even Fin, Sperm Whales and Orca are possible here.  There are seabirds to look out for too, and we can hope to see Cory´s, Scopoli´s and Balearic Shearwaters, Northern Gannets, and in the right conditions, Wilson´s and European Storm Petrels.

During this Bird Migrations & Cetaceans tour, there will also be time to explore more of the area´s superb habitats, which include salt pans, intertidal areas, freshwater wetlands, low-intensity farmland, Mediterranean scrub, precipitous rock faces and the woodlands of Los Alcornocales Natural Park, Europe´s largest Cork oak Forest.  The diversity and wealth of avian and other wildlife in this beautiful unspoilt area of Spain really are astounding!

Couple this with tranquil accommodation in an eco-lodge in the Natural Park itself, the chance to enjoy the picturesque streets and Moorish fortifications of the Old Town of Tarifa, and of course the chance to sample some of Andalusia´s best local food and drink, and you really do have a trip that´s Strait-up fantastic!

About The Straits of Gibraltar

Every year, millions of birds make the 14 km sea crossing, making use of uplifts and thermals rising off the Rock of Gibraltar and the stunning Moroccan peak of Jebel Musa. An estimated 250,000 raptors pass over this rugged terrain during these periods, as well as untold thousands of other journeying passerines and seabirds

This flukey combination of geography and geology means a helping hand for birds and quite simply spectacular birding for us!  The incredible natural phenomenon of visible migration will be happening all around us, meaning you can sit back with a nice cold drink and simply enjoy these unforgettable scenes.

This migration trip is a perfect Spring birding tour or Autumn birding tour.

  • Experience visible bird migration on a grand scale
