Croatia is, being a continental mountainous and Mediterranean country, rich in various species of birds. Many of these species are today rare and endangered in Europe. For the birders, highly interesting would be the coastal area, where different Mediterranean varieties are to be spotted. As Croatia is stretching over the central and partially west-European migration corridors, in the spring and in the fall intensive migrations, especially of raptors, take place in the most of the coastal habitats. The coast is also an important wintering area for a large number of species.

The protected areas of the coast are of special interest, such as the Nature Park Velebit, Nature Park Vransko Lake, National Park Paklenica, ornithological reserve Velo and Kolansko blato on the island of Pag, and the territory of the river Zrmanja, therefore we have chosen exactly these areas for this particular program here presented. Off course, shorter trips, visits to alternative Croatian birding destinations and generally tailor-made tours are available by request.
