Mountains and Karst Slopes of Slovakia with sought after woodland species
With its original habitats, beautiful mountainous landscapes, short driving distances and good infrastructure Slovakia is an excellent birding destination. The High and Low Tatras offer beautiful mountain scenery and vast coniferous forests with all of Europe's woodpeckers, as well as owls, grouses and alpine species.
Our unique spring tour offers all European woodpeckers and several sought after Owl species in the unspoilt forests of Slovakia.
High Tatras, Pol'ana and other hilly regions of Slovakia
The Tatra Mountains of Slovakia are perfect to observe several highlight species such as Pygmy, Tengmalm's and Eagle Owl, Hazel Grouse, Golden and Lesser Spotted Eagle, Nutcracker, Ring Ouzel, Common Crossbill, Crested Tit, with a little luck even Wallcreeper and other alpine species as well.
Beautiful valleys, dense woods and mountain lakes provide excellent scenery throughout the tour.
The region of the Slovak Karst with its limestone gorges, mature beech and mixed forests is home to an abundance of raptors, owls and woodpeckers. There are several attractive habitats we will visit in search of different species, including Imperial Eagle, Saker Falcon, Collared Flycatcher, Rock Bunting and possibly Rock Thrush as well. If you interested in rare and unique butterflies such as Poplar Admiral or Hungarian Glider than you will like this area as well. We also know a local bat specialist, so if you would be interested we can organize a bat watching session as well.
