Introduction

This exclusive photographic tour is a dream for most photographers. The beauty and magnificent presence of these handsome creatures soaring in the skies above the landscape of the Aragonese Pyrenees is something unforgetable for those photographers who have had the luck to experience such a combination. This tour is specifically designed for two photographers, preferably friends, sharing a hide at 1500 mts in the Catalonia Pre-Pyrenees. Weather permitting you will have excellent chances to photograph the birds in flight or on the ground at very short distance. Transport to the hide will be via a rough dirt track in a comfortable 4x 4 vehicle. To complement the hard work of being in a hide all day we will accommodate you in a small Pyrenean village of not more than twenty inhabitants. As part of the Boletas 'style' you will stay in a small guest house producing exquisite home made cuisine, lamb, veal, wild mushrooms and good wine - a perfect finish to the long day.

Day 1 .- We will meet you on your arrival in Barcelona airport. We will then drive to the hides for your first contact with the site where you will have the opportunity to decide where to put the carrion, light conditions etc. Overnight in the pre-Pyrenees.
