Spring birding tour in Hungary
" I invite you to discover the natural heritage and
cultural history of the region "
May is a particularly wonderful time for birdwatching in Hungary. At this time of the year, you have the opportunity to see all the Hungarian birds on your list. There is so much going on during the spring, the males have their beautiful plumage on to attract mates. The breeding season is in focus so you will see the birds in their most vibrant states. On these outstanding five days, we are going to visit two national parks and explore the best birding hotspots and habitats in the country.
