About us



Travel agency watching.sk was established in year 2011 with the main aim to reveal the beauties of Slovak nature to the domestic and foreign clients.

We organize trips focused mainly on birdwatching in Slovakia and in our neighboring countries (Hungary, Austria). Since this year we offer also trips focused on plant watching or wildlife watching (bears, wolves, deer). Program of our trips include also visits of interesting cultural and historical places.

We cooperate with experts in individual fields (ornithologists, botanists, zoologists) and mainly local people. At the same time we try to keep our actions as environmental friendly as possible.

Among our non-profit activities belong lectures and excursions for children and wide public and short courses on identifying birds and their voices, particularly around Bratislava. We cooperate in projects aimed on public awareness raising about birds and nature in general, focused also on their protection.

  • wolf tracking and bearwatching
  • short courses on bird calls
  • teambuilding activities for companies
  • we offer guiding in Slovak, English, German, Dutch and Chinese
