Welcome to Ventures Birding Tours!

 

We have put together quite a varied selection of day trips, weekend and longer Ventures both within North America and further afield. Take a look at our Calendar and you can find out more information on each of our upcoming birding and nature tours. You can enjoy watching warblers in the Carolinas, take a boat up the River Gambia, West Africa or enjoy watching seabirds on a pelagic trip off California. From the Danube Delta in Romania to the Blue Ridge Mountains of North Carolina, we hope you can join us for one of our birding Ventures in the coming year.
