The Galapagos of the Atlantic Ocean!
Why did Darwin travel so far?
The Canary Islands have a lot more to offer the birding visitor than you might guess from their reputation as a winter-sun destination. The isolation of this archipelago has given rise to an avifauna that is not found in any other part of the world.
The islands boast over 650 endemic plant species, a handful of unique reptiles, 6 endemic birds, 3 near endemics and a dozen or more endemic subspecies. However, it is not only the species count that makes the islands special, but their huge variety of...

Audouin Birding Tours is based in the little mountain village of Freginals, on the edge of the Ebro Delta in Spain. It was established in 2005 by Cristian Jensen Marcet and Iben Hove Sørensen in order to offer their own guiding tours as well as their services as ground agents.

Shena Maskell and Cristian have been working together since 2011 designing, guiding and leading tours for several British, Swiss, Scandinavian, Spanish, American companies and organizations.

The main focus of Audouin Birding Tours is Spain, Morocco, Turkey, Senegal and other bird rich countries. The company also includes local trips to the surroundings areas where is based; the Ebro River, including the huge Ebro Delta and the mountain chains Els Ports and Montsià, but tours are planned throughout the Western Palearctic and Africa. Well-known as well as less visited birding localities in Spain are explored, and suggestions for new destinations are always welcome.

The aim of Audouin Birding Tours is to provide fellow bird watchers with high quality birding experiences. We welcome birders with all levels of ability. Every tour and day excursion will be arranged to suit the experience and general preferences of the participants. We are just as happy to spend a day searching for a single elusive species as we are in enjoying the abundant wildlife of the area. Our Mercedes Vito minibus has large windows which are excellent for birdwatching and allow all participants to enjoy their surroundings. We are able to offer guiding in English, Spanish, Catalan, and Danish. So grab your birding equipment and come out to Spain for some superb birdwatching!

All-inclusive birding,wildlife or photographic trips of varying lengths can be arranged on request, so do not hesitate to contact us if you have special wishes for a birding holiday in Spain, Morocco or Turkey. See the Tour Calendar for trips already planned for the coming season.




Situated 200 km south-west of Barcelona (NE Spain), the Ebro Delta is the most important wetland area on the Spanish Mediterranean coast, and the second largest in all the Iberian Peninsula. It is an extensive, flat marsh area at the mouth of the river Ebro. The delta was formed by sediments transported seawards by the river, making a rich land for agriculture. Today, most of the flooded land is cultivated with rice fields. Despite being dominated by human activities, the delta attracts thousands of birds throughout the year.

The delta contains several big lagoons (the largests in Catalonia) of varying salinity, depth and vegetation types; perfect for providing food for several species of birds.


Els Ports Nature Park


The Ports Nature Park is comprised of the Ports limestone massif; a large mountain chain with beautiful rivers, caves, gorges, and peaks well above 1000 m (Mont Caro at 1 447 m is the highest point). The Ports massif is situated close to the Mediterranean coast where it rises at the far eastern end of the Ebro region 200 km southwest of Barcelona (Catalonia). With its total extension of 60 000 Ha, the mountain chain spreads into no less than three of the Spanish territories (Catalonia, Aragon, and Valencia) and earlier served as a natural borderline. The park covers a wide variety of habitats, and several unusual species of plants, insects, amphibians, reptiles and mammals inhabit this complex limestone kingdom. Offering scenic routes, exciting climbs and waterfalls, as well as spectacular views of rare birds and mammals, the Ports attract hikers, climbers, painters and nature lovers alike – and there is enough space for everyone.
