Flying landlords of the Kola s tundra

Region: Kola peninsula 

With patience and luck, one third part of the bird species in Russia can be found on the Kola peninsula. Some of them are rare, seasonal migrants, inhabit the vast tundra, mountains and forests of the peninsula and the shores of the White and Barents seas.
The tour program includes all the key bird habitats of the region, over 200 of which will be seen by the luckiest travellers.
The most fruitful periods, in the frame of the birds numbers, are spring and fall migrations in May and September, but those who come to the Kola penisula in summer have an advantage of the most comfortable weather conditions and of watching the offspring.
Professional local ornithologist leading the group during the whole trip. He will help in finding birds including rare species.
