Caucasus Mountains & Steppes

GEORGIA

Georgia, previously part of the USSR, is now an independent republic. It is a country situated at an intersection between different biogeographical regions, and this is reflected in the richness of its nature and wildlife: there is a high number of endemic or localized species, and a wonderful mix of northern, eastern and Mediterranean elements.


Asia and Europe come in contact here, and the varied and rugged environment guarantees a wide selection of habitats in which to look for birds. The greater Caucasus mountain range lies in the north of the country, and its highest peak here reaches over 5,000 metres!


Lying within the Western Palearctic, the country possesses some fascinating species and we shall search for many of these, including Caucasian Snowcock, Caucasian Black Grouse, Great Rosefinch, Güldenstädt's Redstart and Caucasian Chiffchaff.


There is a strong supporting cast, with Wallcreeper, perhaps 25 species of bird of prey, choughs, Corncrake, and it is even possible to see Grey Wolf or Brown Bear.


The scenery is spectacular, with huge snow-capped peaks, and we will also visit some of the old churches and monasteries that are a  key feature of the country.


Journey with Nicola our expert english speaking tour leader and see why Georgia keeps being a great addition to the Ornitholidays' suite of tours!



NOTE: there is the possibility to combine this tour to the Armenia tour (see Armenia tour webpage) to get the best out of this eastern experience! Tour leader is Nicola Scatassi for both tours. Ask us info about this tours connection!
