Bird Watching in Greece’s Wetlands & Exploring Undiscovered Ancient Sites
Departure April 25 – May 5, 2019
Few people outside the scientific community are aware of the fact that Greece is home to some of the most important and magnificent wetlands in Europe that harbor a rich biodiversity, including large numbers of bird species and plants.
On this unique and unusual program we will explore several of the most notable wetlands in northern Greece, most of which are on the list of Wetlands of International Importance, and which offer great birdwatching opportunities and an unspoiled ecological environment.
In addition to exploring pristine places and birdwatching, we will also visit important archaeological sites that are rarely seen by travelers to Greece, meet with local conservationists and taste the delicious regional cuisine of the places we will visit.
