On the trail of the bearded vulture


A ranger will take you on the half-day excursion to the UNESCO World Heritage Site Tektonikarena Sardona. In the Calfeisental, bearded vulture were resettled. You'll try to locate the large mountain birds. On your way, you'll get answers to all your questions. Where do they fly to? How far do they get with their wings? And do bearded vultures ever return to the nest, where they hatched?
