Karpathos Island,  especially in the North is an exciting place for birdwatchers.

Depending on the season and the weather you can normally see Bonelli eagles and long legged buzzards  soaring above the mountains and plateaus. Also larks, wheatears, swallows, ravens and varieties of swifts. 
We have kestrels,  peregrines and the occasional sparrow hawk. In the spring and autumn many eagles and harriers  pass through.  Also bee eaters.
 
In the spring we have hoopoes, herons,   orioles and cuckoos,  in the autumn kingfishers and wagtails.
 
At sea you will recognise  three varieties of gull,  including the rare Adouine,  shags and shearwaters.

For many birdwatchers the jewel in the crown is our very own Eleanora's falcon.  These come to us every year from Madagascer,  travelling up the African coast,  crossing over the mountains and following the river Nile.  Two days from the Egyption coasts  and they are on the cliffs of North Karpathos. 
Arriving some time in late April these birds lay eggs in August and raise their chicks in September.  Eleanora’s are best seen from small boats in the early evening as the haunting sound of their cries echoes from the majestic cliffs.

We had a great experience with Ecotourism Karpathos. Evangelia's
knowledge about the history, culture, and environment of northern
Karpathos is incredible, and it made our time on the island truly special.
Her walking tour of Olympos and her guided hikes
were full of insights and details you won't find in any guidebook.
It was a perfect way to see and experience the less-visited areas of this amazing island.

My husband, 11 month old, and I had a phenomenal time with Ecotourism Karpathos.
We were met at our hotel and given a tour of the island as we drove to Olympos.
By traveling in a small group, we were able to get a more intimate view of the village.
We met local women and even came across the priest in Olympos’ main church.
One of our favorite highlights was visiting the small farming village
a few minutes down the road and seeing dry farming in action.
The tour exceeded our expectations!

We spent a most unforgettable weekend at the end of September in Karpathos.
Stayed 3 nights in the traditional village of Olympos,
with our own private view of Aegean sunset,
and a chance to chat with local craftspeople before the arrival of daytime tourists.
Evangelia and her company have provided us with airport transfer to the hotel,
a driven guided tour of the rest of the island, which included a visit to the church
of Panagia Vrisiani in Mesochori,
and hands-on lessons in the making of traditional country
bread baked in a wood fired communal brick oven.
Evangelia had also arranged, per our request,
lessons in a traditional folk dance called Pano Horos,
