Dragonfly Holidays

The vast Pannonian lowlands of Hungary are watered by many meandering rivers and streams providing a broad variety of habitats for dragonflies. The steppes of the Great Plain are dotted with alkaline lakes and seasonal marshes, harbouring a characteristic odonate fauna. The forested hills in the northeast and the west are home to further species with different habitat requirements. 62 dragonfly species have been reported from Hungary and during a week long dedicated holiday it is possible to see up to 35 species.
The temporary lakes of Hortobágy and Kiskunság national parks host Dark Spreadwing, Spotted and Southern Darter. Yellow-spotted Whiteface has a stronghold at Kolon Lake in Kiskunság. Lilypad Whiteface and Eurasian Baskettail can be found along the river Tisza. Green Hawker can be found at the upper Tisza where stands of Water Soldier provide habitat.
Our holidays visit some of the best sites in Hungary, which are also home to many interesting birds, butterflies and other wildlife. Tours are lead by local dragonfly experts with many years of experience.
On request we can also set up a tailor made tour to suit your requirements or wish list.
