A warm welcome to the Birds & Nature Tours Portugal website!
Birds & Nature Tours Portugal is the longest established Portuguese company specifically dedicated to birds and birding tours.
We are the local operator for most of the main North American and European birdwatching tour companies and are passionate in our determination to deliver an unrivalled and fulfilling experience (please check TripAdvisor for client comments and reviews of their experiences on our tours).
We specialize in the Iberian Peninsula (Portugal & Spain) and offer a wide variety of programmes, all concentrated upon guided birding and bird photography tours.
Birds & Nature offers birdwatching and bird photography tours of varying duration in Portugal and Spain, as well as to other countries, for which you can make a reservation directly.

In addition to the above tours, we also offer birdwatching and bird photography day tours.

The guided tours organized by Birds & Nature are designed to offer you the best of Iberian birding, with a specific emphasis on what you want to see or photograph.
Our tours are adapted to cover a wide range of experience and abilities, from novice to expert and although focused on birding, are also suitable for the general naturalist and the visitor who wants to see something of the Portuguese and Spanish countryside as well. We also try to show you the rich history which has spawned villages, towns, buildings, monuments and archaeological sites of considerable interest, to provide opportunities to sample the food and wine which is, in itself, a good reason to visit and to take advantage of the pleasant climate and safety of the countryside, which only enhance the experience of the visitor.
For those without their own optics, quality binoculars are available free of charge. On all tours our leaders/guides are equipped with an excellent quality telescope and have available relevant field guides for participants’ use.
Our guides are all ornithologists and birders with a deep knowledge of the birdlife of Iberia and possess the kind of detailed local knowledge necessary to find those tricky or difficult species.
