Tens of thousands of Red-breasted Geese

Bulgaria and Romania in winter, 7-10 days

This tour is without a doubt one of the most spectacular winter holidays in Europe. We take you to Northern Bulgaria and to the finest birdwatching sites in Romania along the Black Sea Coast and the famous Danube Delta region. Winter is an excellent time for birding along the coast, not only for the long list of possible species, but because the area is the wintering place for probably most of the entire World population of Red-breasted Geese, which are gathering here in huge numbers. White-headed Ducks are also congregating in freshwater lakes, together with Black-necked Grebes and Smew. The rocky, dry steppe areas of Dobrogea host flocks of various passerines, including the exciting Calandra Lark. Hen Harrier and Merlin are all here as well and they are easy to see.

A 3-day extension gives you the possibility to visit the Southern Carpathians, the magical land of Count Dracula on a horse sledge in quest for Ural Owl, Nutcracker, Crossbill, Wallcreeper, Hawfinch, Brown Bear, and we may encounter the tracks of Wolf, Lynx and Wild Cat.

We can also organise and include a 2 days Danube Delta boat trip in the programme depending on the size of the group.
