Steller’S Eider Weekend

From: £Contact us

This four-day break visits the island of Saaremaa in western Estonia, the most important wintering area for Steller’s eider, Europe’s most endangered sea-duck, plus a host of other special birds.

Few places in Europe can match Estonia's remarkable birdlife, no matter what the time of year. The island of Saaremaa lies between the Gulf of Riga and the Baltic Sea and is the most important area in Europe for Steller's eider. These eye-catching birds arrive in December and remain until the beginning of April, and in January and February more than 1,000 birds may be present. This is also a great time to see hawk owls, which are uncommon but nonetheless regular winter visitors to Estonia.
