Tailor-made birding tours in Spain

Besides all our standard birding day-trips and birding tours, we also specialize in tailor-made birding and nature tours within Spain. This can be for individuals, couples and larger groups.

Why choosing a custom birding tour

If you have a list of must-see species or want to visit some specific areas or natural parks in Spain, you can simply send us an email explaining your needs. In just a few hours we’ll send you a detailed tour estimate, without any commitment on your part. On our tours you won’t have to worry about anything, just relax and enjoy our natural history.

What we need to know

When only the best will do, we’d love first to know about:

  • What you’ll like to see: areas to go, species to see, etc
  • The date or range of dates for the tour
  • Length of the tour or an approximate tour duration
  • Number of travelers
  • Possible pick up and drop off locations

Some tour ideas

A grand tour of Spain

We know when it is best to go to each site and where to go on a specific date. Considering this, it is possible to run a grand tour that covers the best birding sites in Spain, specially from March till June.

Rarities and tricky targets tour

Add some of these difficult birds to your Spanish list:

  • Spanish Imperial and Bonelli’s eagles
  • Marbled and White-headed Duck
  • Rufous Bush Robin, Western Olivaceous Warbler
  • Get our 5 swifts: Little, Pallid, White-rumped, Alpine and Common
  • Northern Bald Ibis and Common Bulbul
  • Great and Little Bustard, besides our Larks and Sandgrouses
  • Common and Blue Rock Thrushes, Roller, Alpine Accentor

Classical destinations

It is generally easy to combine our most renown birding areas, such as Coto de Doñana, Monfragüe, Tarifa, Ronda and La Mancha with other magnificent bird spots on route. A typical example on what’s here to see in Spain can be found in a 6-day tour linking Extremadura, Doñana and other sites in southern Spain, for instance.

Álvaro has broad knowledge of Andalucia in particular and Spain in general. His natural history knowledge is excellent, and his knowledge of birds is top notch.

Being a nature guide requires much patience and personality. Álvaro has these qualities. A bonus is his sense of humour. During our 4 days of nature exploration (2 days Doñana National Park, El Rocio, Marismas del Odiel, then 2 days around Ronda Mountains, Osuna, Grazalema National Park, Cueva del Gato) we encountered at least 150 species of birds, topped up with some rare mammals (eg. Spanish Ibex), orchids, and lessons about Spanish culture and language. We enjoyed lunch at some very nice spots, two great ones in Huelva and Osuna.

Oh yes, for the bird watchers: I was very lucky to have seen Bonelli’s, Spanish Imperial, Black-winged and Red Kites, Lesser Kestrels, Spotted Cuckoo.Squacco Heron, and White-headed Duck, to name just a few.

Muchas Gracias, Álvaro, hasta la próxima
