Overview

Do birdwatching and discover the Algarve and southern Alentejo. Each tour was designed to give you the most time birding and take you to some of the richest birding spots in south-west Portugal. You can go for a guided tour starting at 25€. Some tours take just a few hours, others will keep you busy a full day. An experimented guide will help you spot all the birds you can find!
