Winter Birding Packages (includes accommodations)
Join BirdTheRock Bird & Nature Tours for a guided tour to see some of Newfoundland’s most famous winter birds!
This package includes accommodations (room and breakfast) at the wonderful ALT Hotel in St. John’s. Join us for a winter getaway!
Our island is renowned for its winter bird specialties – many of which can be found in and around St. John’s. Sought-after seabirds are often found close to shore at coastal locations, bobbing around in historic harbours or below rugged cliffs. Rare European waterfowl routinely winter along with local North American species and provide point-blank views. Some years, northern finches are present in large numbers and can be found feasting on bountiful cone crops. St. John’s is also known for the huge number and rich diversity of winter gulls – some of which normally live so far north that this is “south” for them. And sometimes a rarity or two can be found to add a little extra excitement to our day!
This tour typically begins at Cape Spear (the easternmost point in North America) followed by visits to some smaller fishing villages, and then most of the day is spent looking for special birds in one of Canada’s oldest cities. Multi-day tours include an opportunity to explore the rugged coast, quaint villages and beautiful forests of the “Irish Loop”.
Packages starting at $379 +HST for one day of guided birding + one night’s accommodations. ($499 +HST for two people, based on double occupancy). Tours include lunch; breakfast included with room at the ALT Hotel. Discounts available for bookings of 3+ days or 3+ people.
