Birdwatching Tours around Barcelona.

In coorparation with Catalan Bird tours we offer exclusive or shared day-tours and at any time of year in Barcelona.

Whether you're on a business trip in Barcelona, holidaying in the area or living in Catalonia we offer half, full or multiple day birding trips to suit your needs, even combining two locations in one day.

It's this terrific range of habitats, along with its geographical position on a major migration route, that gives Catalonia a greater variety of birdlife than anywhere on the peninsular, including Andalucia, with 95% of Iberia's and 50% of the whole Palearctic region's recorded bird species. It also has the highest number of breeding species in Iberia and over 40% of its birds are of conservational concern.

Please note that you will receive more than 3 hours of mp3 birdsounds of the European birds fore free when you book a guided birding trip with Catalan Bird Tours  through FlevoBirdwatching.

Your Guide:
Your guide Stephen:
I love showing people the incredible range of habitats and breath-taking landscapes here in Catalonia as well as discussing the behaviour and natural history of its birds. Last year alone I was visited by over a dozen nationalities and saw well over 260 bird species. Transport: a 4x4 vehicle to get into the back-tracks and deeper into the birding country than any minibus tour can go.

Information about possible meeting points:
Usually, transport from/ to Hotel is included unless clients already  hired a car, or in case there are more than 4 clients. Also there is the possibility to take on/ drop off on Barcelona International Airport.

"A wonderful trip. Your precise knowledge about locations for specific birds was remarkable." K.B., India

"Stephen really knows his birds and the terrain, and the trip is rich on info from his experience. He is an amazing guide and will make you find amazing birds." Alex Vargas, Costa Rica/Thailand

 "We had a superb week. I would recommend anyone to contact Steve for a week or few days birding. His expertise and willingness to tailor the trip to individual needs will give a great experience." Jan Scheeres, Wales

 "From the first few minutes at Llobregat I knew it would be a great trip. I've got so many fantastic memories of amazing birds and I've really benefited from the time I've spent with you... your enthusiasm and breadth of experience are obvious. Amazing!" Declan Savage, Ireland

"I would recommend your birding tours without hesitation." Andy Strouthous, UK
