Group tours of Birding Holland are a perfect way to learn about all aspects of Dutch nature. Small groups, a knowledgeable local guide, educational and affordable; what more can you wish? With a minimum of four, and a maximum of 8-10 people, we go out and and focus on a certain group of birds, but sometimes also flowers, insects, mammals etc, that are prominently present at that time of year. Specialized guides will give a short lecture about what we are most likely to encounter before we head out for some hotspots to enjoy both the quality and the quantity of the species present. All tours include coffe/tea and a tipical Dutch stroopwafel (!), a digital checklist afterwards, all entrance fees and road tolls, free use of optics and literature and VAT. Descriptions, dates, prices and starting points of these tours can be found on the Dutch page of Birding Holland . If you are interested in joining one of these tours (all guides speak English and will do so during these tours), please get in contact with us and we’ll send you the details in English.
