Birding in Spain (Full)
November 8 - November 18$3650
Join us for an extraordinary 11-day birding tour of Spain! Led by Chip Darmstadt, in conjunction with Birdwatching Spain. We’ll explore the many birding hotspots of eastern and central Spain, including Albufera de Valencia Natural Park, the Alicante Mountains, Sierra de Guara and much more. The list of birds we may encounter is exciting indeed – globally threatened White-headed Ducks, the stunning Wallcreeper, bluethroats, bustards and sandgrouse, thousands of wintering Common Cranes, and raptors galore – Lammergeier, Red Kite and several species of eagle. And, of course, we’ll delight in the culture, food, and architecture including the impressive medieval town of Alquézar, built around a stunning eighth-century Moorish fort.

Accommodations and physical requirements:
Our accommodations range from rustic cabins to motel-style lodges to full service hotels. We selected lodging that positions us for the best possible wildlife viewing opportunities, while ensuring a clean, warm, and comfortable place to spend the night. Participants should be able to hike 3-4 miles per day on moderate terrain, and be comfortable with early mornings (we will generally depart our lodging at or before sunrise).
