A ROCHA (a 30 years old nature conservation NGO, which started in Portugal and now is spread in 20 countries around the world) started a Nature Tourism department as a way of generating income for its nature conservation and environmental education actions. We do mostly Bird watching Tours, either half day, one day or one week long. All of these have been highly appreciated and recommended by our customers. We promise 120 species in a week-long tour and so far all have surpassed these numbers, with special birds always included.

All our activities are carbon neutral and all the profits are invested on A ROCHA's Nature Conservation and Environmental Education programs.

Because this area of work had been growing quite well we are starting the process to have an independent spin-of company to take this work forward.

Bird watching services

A ROCHA has a great experience in field work and in guiding groups, in particular in bird watching groups, but other natural groups are also covered, although only if people are interested.

We are open to guide groups that any tourism company might have, or to develop joint programs with other companies or even with accommodation places (hotels or rural tourism).
