STELLER`S EIDER BREAK

      

An 4-day fully-inclusive holiday in search flocks of Steller´s Eider and other wintering specialities of West-Estonia.

Price: 595 € pp.

Programme can be viewed when choosing Tour dossier from the right menu.

Few places in Europe can match Estonia's amazing birdlife, at almost any time of year. The most important wintering area for Steller’s Eider, Europe’s most endangered seaduck,  is off the coast of our biggest island, Saaremaa. These eye-catching birds arrive in December and leave around the beginning of April. Come in January and February when congregations may reach 1000 birds or more.
This is also a great time for Hawk Owls, an uncommon but regular winter visitor in Estonia.
