Guided birdwatching sessions

Press Releases

The Natural History Museum of the Lesvos Petrified Forest and the Kalloni EIC are offering guided birdwatching activities aiming to promote awareness about the natural wealth of the Lesvos Geopark, within the island's protected areas (Natura 2000 Network).

Birding is the most famous nature-watching activity with millions of fans all over the world today. Lesvos island is a well-known destination for birdwatching in Europe as several very special bird species can be observed here and, due to the island's geographical position, observing the migration of birds between Europe and Africa, as they cross the eastern Mediterranean region,  can be really rewarding.

Autumn migration of wetland birds is taking place since mid-July and is becoming more profound towards the end of August. The spring migrants are now leaving Europe to reach Africa for overwintering. We were just waiting for the temperatures to drop so that our trips would be more enjoyable!

The guided birdwatching trips will be available every Tuesday, Thursday, Saturday, and Sunday (8:00-10:30 or 17:00-19:00), until October 10, at the area of the Kalloni Salt Pans. The maximum group size will be 10 persons and pre-booking and buying an e-ticket (10€) is required. The activity is offered in both Greek and English and the participants should be over the age of 8 years old. 

No prior experience is required and each participant should be over the age of 8 years old.

In compliance with the Greek government’s COVID 19 health and safety protocols, we have implemented extra safety measures for the health and safety of our participants and employees.
