I have never done bird watching before, is it a problem?
No, you do not need experience for this tour. Our guide will be here with you to explain everything.
What animals can we see during this tour?
During the tour, you will discover some of the 33 species of birds nesting in the Azores.
What is the best season for bird watching in São Miguel island?
It all depends on what you want to see. For resident species, the best season is summertime, even if they are here all year round, this is the time of the year we can easier spot them. For migratory birds, the best time is at the end of winter, during the springtime and also at the beginning of autumn.
What makes the Azores a good bird watching destination?
Thanks to its large lakes, São Miguel provides ideal conditions for water birds and waders from all around the world. These birds are looking for rest and food after their long migrating trips. It is possible to find a variety of ducks from two different continents in the same spot. Many of the birds remain around the lakes from fall to springtime.
If you are a nature lover and like to enjoy birds crossing the skies, the island of São Miguel is one of the best territories, almost untouchable, of the few places in the world where you can still feel unique in the midst of such pure nature!
Rich bird experience
Rest assured that it is an experience rich in bird knowledge because this visit is always accompanied by a biologist and technician who has years of experience in the study of birds in the Azores.
In São Miguel, our bird watching activity can be done in a personalized way for small groups or individual clients and is based on a privileged contact with our almost virgin nature and little explored by man. The conservation of animals and their habitats are part of the Azorean priorities.
In addition, we also provide binoculars to our customers so they can watch the birds in the best way and end the experience with a full heart!
If you are, as they say, a good fork, a food lover, know that this activity includes lunch at a local restaurant where you will be able to taste some delicacies from our land.
