Southern Portugal Birdwatching Tour

Southern Portugal Migration Bird Watching Tour

A full 8-day Southern Portugal birdwatching tour is a moderately-paced trip with any available date start with a professional Birding and Photography Guide for group sizes from 2 to 20 people, including four Full Day Trips. This birding tour in Southern Portugal is available for any start date you care to name and you can expect to have good views of anything up to 150 species of bird in the differing habitats you'll be visiting, as well as reptiles, butterflies, dragonflies, and mammals.

Based in the southern half of the country, the four Full Day Trips take you, with your fully licensed and insured professional Guide and photographer, to a diverse array of habitats, the Plains of the Alentejo for the steppe species, Foia and the Sagres Peninsula for high mountain species mixed with the rocky cliffs and sea-watching of Europe’s most south-westerly point, the Lagoa S. André for marshland and Cork Oak forests and the Faro Salt Pans for waders and other wetland birds.

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!

The Quinta "Paradise in Portugal" EcoLodge

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.
