* Vitosha Nature Park (whole day trekking and birding). Transfer from the town of Sofia to Vitosha Nature Park, where a stroll in the spruce forest and the alpine zone will ensure observations of the Black Woodpecker, Rock Thrush, Pallid Swift, Black Redstart, Crag Martin, Ring Ouzel, Water Pipit, Common Crossbill, Nutcracker, Goldcrest and Firecrest and other mountain specialties.
* Dragoman Marsh (whole day birding and leisure walking). Transfer from the town of Sofia to Dragoman Marsh (only 35 km west of the Bulgarian capital). Here the species list comprises not only water-connected birds as Bittern, Little Bittern, White and Black Storks, Garganey, Pochard, Ferruginous Duck, Great Reed, Reed, Marsh, Savi's and Sedge Warblers and many others, but also birds breeding in the adjacent Karst terrains, namely - Short-toed Eagle, Long-legged Buzzard, Ortolan and Black-headed Buntings, Isabelline Wheatear, Lesser Grey Shrike, Short-toed Lark etc.
* Combined tour (half day - Vitosha Mountains, half day - Dragoman Marsh). This trip combines the advantages of the other two trips, although not providing a detailed overview as they do separately! However the trekking part will be shortened but still the highlights remain almost the same.
Guaranteed departures: every day during the period May 01 - August 15; trips outside this period could be organized upon request without providing guarantee for observation of all the species mentioned!
