Here in Cyprus, we have an amazingly rich diversity of Birding ecological biomes: Sea and Shore, Coastal Plains, Desert, Scrubland, Freshwater lakes and dams, Saltwater marshes and lagoons, Forest, and even Alpine all within close succession. Here, every season, millions of birds on the Africa/Asia/Europe migratory flyways stop over to rest, feed and nest. For those birdwatchers in the know, it’s an intense birding experience that they return to again and again. Our tailor made tours are flexible, expertly led, and geared to the pace that you are comfortable with. We offer tours for groups up to 8 people in a minivan, and private tours of up to 3 people which are conducted in a Hybrid vehicle so as to lessen our carbon footprint. There’s a lot to see and photograph, if that's your preference. Call or email us for a chat, discuss what you hope to achieve on your exploration of our amazing island, and hopefully we’ll get to take you on a birding journey like no other.
