When you say Dobruja, you think of a mystical land, totally special. But Dobruja it is not only Romania, Dobruja is also in Bulgaria, across the border are places as beautiful as here. Like here, fauna is rich and special and we want to show you all these places, birds and animals.

We dedicate this programs to birding and photography (this are not the classic tours, are not leisure). Of course we will discover wonderful places in Dobruja, we’ll find their stories but we put a very strong emphasis on fauna.

This program is a circuit through Dobruja, every night we have accommodation elsewhere, every day we experience the site-specific dishes, we see new places, beautiful places, we seek for fauna of these places.

From October 25 to February 28 we are looking in particular geese, raptors and small birds in beautiful places, along and across Dobruja.

In March we focus very much on spring migration of birds and that we can see in Dobruja only in migration, particularly along the Black Sea shore.

Climb (lite hiking) the most spectacular area of Macin Mountains, admiring the beautiful countryside and birds that find their winter site here. Winter in Macin Mountains can provide an unique experience. Then go to other areas in Macin and show you the beauty of places and fauna. We do not offer a very detailed route because we want to take you through “pathless” places and want to remain like this :-).

Since the days are short and nights long, we use the maximum period of light to visit as many places as we can. In the evening, after sunset, we have enough time to move to the location of the accommodation that evening.

Lunch we have packed and in the evening we return to the hotel where we draw conclusions on what we saw that day and eat a good dinner.

Equipment

Being a winter tour, which involves traveling by land, you need a good personal equipment. It should contain:

  • Waterproof clothes – in Dobruja even if it does not rain, winter is likely to be fog and / or wind. Only good quality clothes will remain warm and dry.
  • Waterproof and mud shoes – boots and / or rubber boots GOOD QUALITY! We will travel through the mud or snow, even if are not long distance, though you should be well prepared for this.
  • Color of the clothes is also very important. Please bring your clothes in colors more natural, as close to the colors of nature surrounding. Camouflage pattern on brown are best. If clothes come in red, yellow or other colors of the city you will certainly not go too close to wildlife.

As birdwatching equipment should have with you

  • Binocular (GOOD ONE!)
  • Field Scope (optional)
  • Camera and spare batteries

Day tours

It lasts from 6 am to sunset. We go on road or not, the decision belongs exclusively to guide/drive to cross a field depending on weather conditions and road conditions (mud, ice, etc.).

Overall we go on the fields, looking for places, we scan for geese flocks and when we find a good place we’ll stay with the sun behind, to see what is happening.

If the weather worsens, snowing or foggy, user and / or driver can interrupt the tour. Customer safety comes first, always want to make sure that we can get back to town without any problems.

Walking

The walking effort is mostly easy throughout the tour if the weather conditions are normal. In this case we should be able to drive close to most hides.

Extreme conditions

In case of extreme weather conditions (snow, roads closed) occurred before the start of the tour, the deposit will be returned in full.

If these extreme conditions occur during the tour, the price will be lowered only remaining part of the program not made.

If customers come from another country / region and appear extreme weather conditions, our agency has no obligation to compensate customers in any way for expenses related to flights or other transportation. Also, if extreme weather conditions occurring during the program and it is not possible return home clients, our agency has no obligation to pay accommodation and other additional expenses.
