Experience 7 Day Trip in 10 different Professional Photo Hides combining Valencia & El Taray Lagoon.
November to February are excellent months for photography trips. The weather is generally good and the days are sufficiently long to enjoy good sessions in the hides.
All hides are very comfortable and can easily hold 3 photographers with equipment. With regards to lenses and cameras, a zoom lens (120-300, 100-400 and 150-600) and ﬁxed lenses (300-400mm) would work best and of course a tripod.
The hide sessions can be modiﬁed depending on the needs of the group, bird species and the weather / light conditions.
