Known as the Princess of the Northwest Aegean Sea, the Greek island of Lesvos has become known by birders as one of the best locations in Europe to witness spring migration. Our base in the small fishing village of Skala Kalloni is perfectly located close to important wetland and coastal habitats. From here, the rest of the island with its varied countryside, historic villages and friendly people, can be easily explored. Whether searching out the island’s special birds, such as Krüper's Nuthatch and Cinereous Bunting, or marveling at the continual stream of fabulous eastern migrants, or enjoying some of the island’s 70 species of orchids, you will soon be captivated by the magic of Lesvos.  From the slopes of Mount Olympus, to the island’s sparkling rivers and lakes, to picturesque fishing villages alongside beautiful golden beaches, this island with its wealth of resident and migrant birds will have you longing to return. In 2024, we'll be offering an exciting pre-trip extension to discover the diversity of orchids and wildflowers in bloom in early spring. Info & Reservations>
