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 Parks

For bird watching lovers we offer two different tours. A half day tour to UNESCO world heritage site the Wadden Sea or a full day tour to Texel Island.  Our national parks are geared towards bird watchers with many easy accessible blinds and lookouts. On these trips we will take you to our biggest nature reserves, the unique mudflats of the Waddensea. And, if you join our Island tour we add lakes, wetlands, and dunes to the mix, which is home to a huge variety of bird species!

From 2024 our bird watching tours will be incorporated in our seal and island tours. During the seal tour the focus is on migrating coastal birds feeding on the mudflats during low tide, from Spoonbills to the beautiful Eider ducks and Oyster catchers. We’ll se the birds from the boat as well as stop at a hide on the way to the harbor.

Island & Seal tours

During our Island tour we’ll go to the mudflats at low tide and to the North sea beaches. In the dunes and wetlands we will visit several of the birding hotspots on the island. Besides coastal birds and geese the island is known for the many species of raptors and song birds. This is a full day tour from 8 AM o 6 PM and is available year round!
