Pick-up/ Drop-off
Picnic lunch
1-4 persons
Half or Full-day

Our program is an ambitious one:

  • identify, contemplate and learn about the birds and other natural values that surround us;
  • visit some of the most emblematic places of SW Portugal;
  • deepen both the inner connection with Nature, and the knowledge about local history and culture;

Making a long story short, our goal is getting to know the region, thought birdwatching.

With the focus set on the birds, it´s movements and rhythms, we will visit some of the most iconic places of this part of the world, and hear about its’ culture, traditions and people. Your guide will be a biologist and experienced birdwatcher with family roots in the region.

Our home is the West Coast, and our target-areas will be mainly Aljezur, Sagres and Lagos, while other destinations in Western Algarve – like Monchique, Portimão or Silves – will be visited if considered sensible and suitable. The tours are quite flexible, designed to reduce time spent travelling between hotspots, and tailored to the seasons and to the client´s profile.

Birdwatching can be a family activity and not just for specialists. It is not all about the number of species seen in the end of the day, but about creating moments of contact with wildlife and nature. Moments to remember and cherish.

Tours entirely focused on pure birding are recommended especially during the Autumn migration period.
