Birding & nature tours

FOREWORD BY BRYAN BLAND

foreword by bryan bland
As a director of SUNBIRD, I must choose the best possible ground agents in every country we visit (about 100). We are proud to work with many capable companies. But Jiri Mikulec and his magnificent company ETOURS TRAVEL have over the course of 15 years proved to be our best agents not just in Eastern Europe but anywhere in the world....

PREFACE

preface
Our tours cover large parts of Central Europe, although majority are run in HUNGARY and SLOVAKIA. ETOURS TRAVEL was founded in 1991 and years of experience has resulted in sophisticated tour designs. We work not only with a network of local guides, but with virtually all the bigger tour operators. Hungary and Slovakia offer richly contrasting largely unspoilt countryside. Hungary is a well known destination for birdwatchers, notably the famous Hortobagy National Park where the puzla, ponds and marshes attract millions of birds every Spring. Slovakia’s mountain forests, deep lakes and rocky habitats are home to completely different breeding species. Our Company offers the best opportunity to see bears in Central Europe. Bear watching is now well established in three different areas.
