The IOC Bird Festivals - Experience the migration!


Our international birdwatching festivals offer visitors the opportunity to experience the amazing birds and birding in Israel during the migration seasons.

The festivals are week long events that include a wide range of tours, presentations, workshops and more, all during the peak of migration.


The Festivals are led by the most experienced birding tour leaders in the country and cover all the major sites and key species each region has to offer.


The festivals use excellent hotels and vehicles, giving our visitors an overall memorable week.  There is no argument that the IOC Birding festivals are the best value package to bird Israel today, be it Spring of Autumn.



Our International bird festivals are unique in the fact that all the proceeds we raise are channeled right back into bird conservation work in Israel. The money we raise through our tours and festivals allows us to plan ahead, run multiyear conservation projects and better protect the birds and habitats of Israel.

Join us and migrate to Israel during the next migration season, you will not regret it!
