Flyways birding and Nature is a birding and nature tour company founded by birders for birders. We believe that birds are the perfect gateway to conservation and our tours are designed in a way that promises that conservation and nature protection receive the attention they deserve. We choose our destinations carefully and work with experienced ground agents that not only offer the best services, but also indulge in conservation, sustainability and the welfare of nature.

All our leaders are very experienced birders and guides with many years of experience in the field. Besides being strong field birders, we put great emphasis on people skills and dynamics to make sure your overall experience is one to remember.

Flyways is based in Israel but our groups include birders from all over the world making the experience even more special.

All our tours are designed for small groups (6-12 people max) with 2 guides.

Finally, there are many wonderful birding tour companies out there, offering many exciting destinations. Some of our tours follow classic routes but all our trips are slightly different, offering special sites and encounters and “out of the box” experiences. We aspire to empower local communities, empower our local tour leaders and choose lodgings and services with providers that give back to nature.

Join us for a birding and nature vacation you will not forget, enjoy an amazing holiday and give back to nature as you do it!

See you in the field,
Jonathan and the team.

Jonathan Meyrav was born and raised in Israel. Following high school and mandatory military service Jonathan spent several years travelling the world in search of birds, wildlife and adventures. In the early 2000’s Jonathan settled back in Israel and began working with Birdlife Israel as a tour leader and field survey coordinator. In 2005 Jonathan started developing the birding tourism branch for the Society for the Protection of Nature in Israel and from 2010 became the director of Tourism and
international events. Besides constructing tour programs Jonathan started the Eilat and the Hula Valley Bird Festivals, international conferences and of course, the Champions of the Flyway project.

After 16 years with Birdlife Israel, Jonathan decided to found “Flyways Birding and Nature” a birding tour company that strives to combine fantastic birding, sustainable eco-tourism and a true love for people and nature.

Join Jonathan and friends in the field and do your part for conservation as you enjoy a memorable birding holiday.
