FoMW 5 DAY VULTURE PHOTOGRAPHY – ALINYÀ This programme offers you the chance of 2 full days intense vulture photography from our photo hide in Alinyà. We expect to photograph all 4 European vultures: Griffon vulture, Black vulture, Lammergeier and Egyptian vulture (from March till September). During winter time the Golden Eagle is also often present at the feeder. Apart of the vulture hide we also spend time on taking you around in the Alinyà mountains, using another hide on a mountainside where the vultures fly very closeby, experiencing a chamois safari or you have the chance to pass time in our passerine hide. The evenings are filled with a nice local dinner, followed by image discussions and presentations. This programme is guided by Francesc Muntada or Sebastian Vervenne.

Starting at € 935 per person, this price is based on a group of 4 people.

FoMW Practical Information

3 - Eventhough you might visit AlinyĂ  in summer season, it stays Pre-Pyrenees landscape, so it is advisable to take warm clothes.

Clothing

- Mountain shoes.

- We advice telephoto lenses, but since the vultures come this close to the hide, lenses starting at 300mm will be sufficient.

Photography

- Tripod and tripod head able to be demounted, so you can screw it at the special antivibration platform provided in the hide. - Take enough memory cards and somewhere to backup images.

- It is possible to book extra nights before or after the desired program at Ca la LluĂŻsa or at the apartment.
