Join Bogdan Boev on our Dalmatian Pelican photography holiday located in the heart of Lake Kerkini in Greece.
Picturesquely located between riverside forests and panoramic views of Belasitsa and Krousia mountains gives this region a characteristic atmosphere. Lake Kerkini is truly one of the stunning natural wonders of Europe.
At the core of this relatively unexplored habitat of biological beauty, thriving populations of Dalmatian Pelicans, Greater Flamingos, Pygmy Cormorants, White Pelicans and other waterbirds, nestle to call the lake home. The combination of wildfowl, flora and fauna, stunning winter light and a quiet region make it the perfect hotspot for bird photography.
During this Dalmatian Pelican photography holiday you will take 4 shore feeding sessions and 2 boat feeding sessions on the lake. This allows you plenty of time to capture the most amazing portfolio of these fantastic birds.
We leave the hotel before sunrise. The transportation to the lake is via 4×4 off road vehicles which stop a few meters from the lake. We will have a private boat for the lake and will find a quiet spot along the lakes edge for shore feeding sessions.
Day 1 Take an early flight from home and you will be welcomed by your photography tour leader at Sofia airport, where we will transfer to our accommodation over the border in to Greece. If time allows, you’ll go to the lake for a sunset photography session on the shoreline.
Days 2-3 After an early breakfast we transfer to our photographic boat at Lake Kerkini. In the afternoon (after lunch) we’ll return to the lake for shore feeding session with the Pelicans.
Day 4 After a very early breakfast (depending on your flight time) we’ll return to the lake for one last shore feeding session with the Pelicans. You will be transferred to the Airport for the onward flight.
Accommodation is provided in the heart of Kerkini and close to the lake in a beautiful hotel. Breakfast is provided and is prepared for you by local cooks. The food is gorgeous and you wont go hungry with these portion sizes.
