South-East Romania, Dobrogea is an wonderful land if you know when to visit it. Winter is one of the special seasons in Dobrogea, here you can see a lot of geese, including the famous Red-breasted, White-fronted and Lesser White-fronted Goose, Whooper and Tundra Swans, many raptors and passerines. Winter is an exceptional season for birders and photographers in Dobrogea.

Dobrogea is undoubtedly the best place where to see Red-breasted Geese due to the large number of birds wintering here. In November – March, almost the entire world population (+94%) of Red-breasted Geese is here.

It’s an winter tour, a combination of photography and birdwatching tour. The guide will bring a scope for the entire group use, we can also borrow you binoculars if you do not have. You just bring your photo camera. If you can’t get close enough to the birds for (photo) shooting, you just enjoy their presence and watch them through binoculars or scope.
