Wallcreeper & Vultures Birdwatching Tour in Bulgaria
This is an 8-day Bulgaria Birding Wallcreeper & Vultures Tour set in the mythical Rodopi Mountains.
Rodopi is the mountain where the mythical Orpheus was born, and where his music made even the most ferocious forest beasts, bears and wolves, to freeze to their place and listen to it. We are going to visit the places where this ancient Thracian god looked for his beloved Eurydice as the legend has it. The last archaeological findings, namely the discovery of the ancient Thracian rock city of Perperikon indicates that Rodopi Mountains was the cradle of Thracian civilization, one of the most ancient in the world.
Along with these priceless archaeological treasures, Rodopi Mountains possess a unique nature abounding in rare and endemic species of plants and animals. The area is often considered for Bulgaria birding experience as the best place in Europe to watch large birds of prey as on this tour we will have the unique chance to observe the three of the four possible species of vultures in Europe (Eurasian Griffon Vultures, Egyptian Vultures, and Eurasian Black (or Cinereous) Vulture). The Rhodopes are also considered as one of the most accessible places in Europe to see the marvellous Wallcreeper which reminds an enormous butterfly in flight.
