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. near the area holding the highest density of Lammergeiers in Europe, few kilometers far from the expectacular Ordesa National Pak. Almost 50 Lammergeiers of all ages are regular visitors of the area. Weather permitting you will have excellent chances to photograph the birds in flight or on the ground at very short distance. You can visit the area in a Guided tour or Independent.
