Spring Birds, Orchids & Prehistory In Wild Dordogne

From: £Contact us

Explore interesting habitats and picturesque villages in search of resident and migrant birds, butterflies, and wildflowers including British rarities and exotics.

A relaxed-pace holiday, with lots of opportunity for photography on daily excursions from from our riverside hotel base. In the woodlands, fields and scrub we look and listen for nesting birds. Orchids are a particular highlight here, with British rarities such as lady orchid found alongside such exotics as violet limodore, while early species butterflies are emerging. Local chateaux, prehistoric cave paintings in the Vézère Valley and the delicious local cuisine add to a week of gentle natural history exploration.
