As soon as I had set eyes on some photographs of Dalmatian Pelicans on the internet I knew that I was going to visit them, I was so deeply enchanted by them. It didn’t take me long to find the NaturesLens Dalmatian Pelican Photography Holiday & I booked it right away!

As usual, the rooms are all on a non-sharing basis, all food is included in the trip & believe me, there is plenty of food served on these photography holidays – plus there are easy flights into & out of Thessaloniki, with airport transfers from the airport to the hotel & back all included.

There are travel days either side of the trip, but as a minimum you can expect to experience 3 days filled with Dalmatian Pelican photography opportunities – at least 3 boat trips onto Lake Kerkini included – plus 3 shoreline feeds at sunset – & an extra shoreline feed on the morning that the group leaves for the airport. Our itinerary is not fixed to the above however, if there are opportunities for a feed on the way to the hotel from the airport, on the first afternoon, you will undertake a shoreline feed to capture some initial images.

You will have opportunities to capture a wide selection of images; portraits & closeup shots of perched Dalmatian Pelicans, pelicans calling, flying, fighting for fish; plus wider bird in the landscape images to show impressive backdrop to the lake with the snow covered mountains in the distance.
