Although Portugal is not considered one of the prime European countries for bird watching, it is a great country for birdwatchers not only in terms of breeding birds, but also in migrants and non-breeding visitors - seabirds form an important part of what is on offer, both on the mainland and on the archipelagos of Madeira and Azores.

From exploring seabird routes taking past striking coastal paths full of big open skies which are prime sites for a wealth of sea birds, or spotting exceptional and sometimes rare species in their natural habitats walking along stunning natural reserves such as the bird sanctuary of Berlenga Island, visiting birdwatchers will be thrilled with what’s on offer in many spectacular areas of the country.

If you have a passion for birding, Absolutely Portugal can help you planning an exciting birdwatching break, arranging anything from just a few hours to a full week's bird watching tour.

Apart from the birds and its fantastic landscapes and wildlife, Portugal is also interesting from other points of view – history, monuments, beaches, gastronomy, etc, so bird watching can also be combined with site seeing, gourmet experiences and other activities.
