Orkney Islands Birdwatching Tour in Scotland
This 7-day Orkney Birding & Wildlife Tour is a relaxed tour of the archipelago available as a set departure. You can expect to see up to 100 species of bird, including seabirds such as Puffins and raptors such as Hen Harriers. Out at sea we’ll be looking for seals and if we’re lucky, cetaceans such as Harbour Porpoise or even Orca. Orkney’s special 5,000 year-old Neolithic and more recent Viking past forms a backdrop to our wildlife enjoyment.
This Orkney Birdwatching Tour represents good value-for-money for a small group tour, and is all-inclusive of the high quality 3* accommodation, meals, transport within Orkney, and most important of all, the years of experience of your guide. A small group size means that you are guaranteed more personal attention in our zero-emission electric tour vehicle. All you have to do is to get here, and we will do the rest!
During this Orkney Birding & Wildlife Tour, you will visit 3 islands in the archipelago (Hoy, Westray and South Ronaldsay) and spend two full days touring the Mainland of Orkney. Many RSPB reserves will be visited, along with the major 5,000-year-old archaeological sites of the Ring of Brodgar, Skara Brae, and the Tomb of the Eagles. We wouldn't dream of letting you leave Orkney without showing you a puffin and a hen harrier, and lots of other magical birds, flowers, and sea mammals.
