Bird Watching in the Algarve and Alentejo
An 8-day private birdwatching Algarve and Alentejo tour in Southern Portugal for 1 person only with professional Birding and Photography Guide including two Full Day Trips to the Plains of the Alentejo and the Sagres Peninsula targeting steppe species such as Great and Little Bustards as well as raptors including Spanish Imperial, Golden, Short-toed and Booted Eagles.
Based in the southern half of the country the two Full Day Trips take you, with your fully licensed and insured professional Guide and photographer, to diametrically opposed habitats, firstly to the Plains of the Alentejo for the steppe species, followed by Foia and the Sagres Peninsula for high mountain species mixed with the rocky cliffs and sea-watching of Europe’s most south-westerly point.
This is a one-stop accommodation break, so there’s no tedious packing and unpacking every other day, allowing for more time spent doing what you love to do – getting to grips with unspoiled Nature and really enjoying yourself. Surrounding your accommodation, which is aptly named “Paradise in Portugal” there is subsistence farmland, Cork Oak Forests, various Hides, valleys and streams.
The venue itself is a 5* Tripadvisor-rated EcoLodge, so your carbon footprint is as low as it gets. It overlooks a pristine mosquito-free lake set in the middle of nowhere with no nearby road, so there’s no noise or light pollution. The large surrounding garden hosts a wealth of species, notably nesting Eurasian Golden Orioles and several pairs of Common Nightingales amongst others.
The food is excellent, home-cooked and themed on “International Home Cooking”. It’s not from packets and there are lashings of it, backed by an extensive Portuguese Wine List with an Ornithological theme.
You’ll be spoiled for choice as to what are the best birds on this 8-day break, but highlights will definitely include Bustards, Raptors, Shorebirds, Cliff & Farmland species!
Full Board, pick up and drop off from/to Faro airport and all transfers inside Portugal.
Pricing based on twin/double occupancy. Single supplement available from €520 on request.
