(No availability) 3 Day Birdwatching Tour in Ladoga Lake, Leningrad Oblast

Gokh Hotel, Zaporozhie Village, Priozersk District, Leningrad Region, 188734, Russia

Autumn Birdwatching Tour in Russia

During this birdwatching tour, you’ll watch the autumn migration of Arctic birds over the Ladoga Lake: a non-stop mass flight of birds from home towards their winter quarters. On some days, the migrating birds cover the whole sky like strands of a cobweb. The tour also provides a unique opportunity to see and photograph the huge numbers of waterfowl that take a break from their travels on the Lake. This, combined with the bright colors of autumn leaves in stunning and unspoiled countryside, produces a deep and long-lasting impression on most bird watchers and lovers of nature.
