Small Group Tour Bird Watching in Unique Nature Reserve from Amsterdam

Discover the birds of Holland!

With its moderate sea climate the Netherlands are a favorite place for resident and migrating birds. Conveniently located on the East Atlantic Flyway it is a major hub for millions of migrating coastal birds like Terns, Spoonbills, Avocets, Curlews and Godwits, geese and ducks. For birds of prey lovers the marshlands offer great opportunities to see majestic White Tailed Eagles, Harriers, Kites, Buzzards and Osprey. We are always looking for rare and beautiful birds, from song birds like Hawfinches, Wheatears, Warblers and Bluethroats to Kingfishers, Bitterns and Pallid Harriers!

The National Park
Our national parks are geared towards bird watchers with many easy accessible blinds and lookouts. On this full day trip we will take you on a walk in one of our biggest nature reserves, with lakes, wetlands, swamps and grasslands, which is home to a huge variety of bird species, of which 31 are on the European endangered species list. The area is also home to big herds of large grazers like Red Deer, Heck cattle and Konik horses.

We will pick you up at 8 AM in Amsterdam at the River Cruises Docks behind the Central Train station. We will drive to the nature reserve which is about one hour from Amsterdam. We will explore the nature reserve by foot and will visit several blinds and lookout points to observe birds and other wild life. The tour includes snacks and drinks for the day. The hike is about 10 to 15 km (6 to 9 mi) long. At the end of the day we will bring you back to Amsterdam (around 3 PM). Please bring
a small backpack, hiking boots or sneakers, binoculars and your camera!
