Scheduled tours

We are running the following scheduled tours during 2021-2022. Please click on any of the tours for further details including a full itinerary. Our 2023 schedule is already beginning to take shape, and once the first tours will begin to be announced during the Autumn.

Please note: Tours marked 'Tour provisionally full' are for a tour that is fully booked but since the tour cost is yet to be announced no deposits have yet been paid, so please do notify us of your interest in case a place becomes available once the tour cost is confirmed.

Catch-up tours: In addition to our scheduled tours, we also offer 'Catch-up tours', whereby birders are looking for additional participants to make up a team for select species or a specific itinerary. Please visit our Custom tours page for further details.
