Go Slow ... in Andalucia

Tour Code: ESP46

A 7-day holiday to enjoy the autumn bird migration across the Strait of Gibraltar, based at a delightful eco-resort.

7 days from £1395(inc flights) Land Only Price: £1275 SRS: £150


After a short flight we’ll transfer to our base for the week, the delightful Huerta Grande Eco-resort, which is tucked away in a quiet valley amongst Cork Oak woodland to the west of Gibraltar. During our stay, we will enjoy the daily passage of migrating raptors heading to Africa for the winter, together with thousands of White Storks, European Bee-eaters and Alpine Swifts, all, we hope, bathed in warm autumn sunshine. Migratory waders, terns and gulls will also be in evidence, whilst Crested Tit, Firecrest and many other species are common around Huerta Grande itself. All excursions will be within a short drive of our base, and we will have plenty of time to relax as squadrons of migrating birds pass overhead.

  • Relaxed-pace, single-centre holiday based at a delightful eco-lodge
  • Enjoy watching the autumn bird migration over the Strait of Gibraltar
  • Raptors, storks, bee-eaters, terns & waders among the migrants to look out for

This new 7-day ‘Go Slow’ holiday is based at the delightful eco-lodge of Huerta Grande, tucked away in a quiet valley amongst Cork Oak woodland yet just a short drive to the west of Gibraltar. After a short flight, we will enjoy the daily passage of migrating raptors heading to Africa for the winter, together with thousands of White Storks, Bee-eaters and Alpine Swifts, all, we hope, bathed in warm autumn sunshine. Migratory waders, terns and gulls will also be in evidence, whilst Crested Tit, Firecrest, Hawfinch, Serin and Short-toed Treecreeper are all common around Huerta Grande itself. All excursions will be within a short drive of our base and we will have plenty of time to relax, to walk amongst the extensive and tranquil wooded grounds of the lodge, or simply to lie by the pool as squadrons of migrating birds pass overhead. We hope that, after this new tour, you will not only feel relaxed and refreshed but also more confident with your raptor identification, having enjoyed a masterclass from your tour leader beneath one of Europe’s great migration flyways.
