A small country with a big list - we’ll explore landscapes from islands, coastal wetlands and reedbeds to atmospheric pine forests in search of woodpeckers, owls, Steller’s Eider and other sea-ducks, raptors, geese and much more - with minibus transport on this short three-centre holiday. Easy level walking but some forest trails may be muddy.
