Portugal wildlife holidays are one of the great secrets within our Europe wildlife holidays portfolio. Where else do you have the chance to see the highly endangered Iberian Lynx on the mainland and at the same time visit one of the worlds renowned hotspots for ethical whale watching. Our Portugal wildlife tours offer both bespoke trips and small group wildlife photography tours with a strict maximum of 6 clients allowed. Our whale watching safaris from Pico Island give you the chance to see Blue Whales, Fin Whales, Sperm Whales, several different dolphin species; as well as rare turtles, such as Loggerhead.
The Azores is one of the best places to see whales and dolphins in Europe and the island of Pico is world famous as one of the best locations to see Blue Whales; particularly in the months of April and May. However, Pico has a long whale watching season from April to October and the magnificent Sperm Whale is another species which visits the waters off this beautiful island, with the famous Pico Volcano providing a stunning backdrop to your activities. Over 20 species of whales and dolphins either inhabit or pass by these waters along their migratory routes, so that Pico is one of the very best spots in the world for Whale Watching.
