Hawk Mountain Eco-Tours

Hawk Mountain and Raptours LCC: Premier Eco-Tours

The global touring company Raptours, L.C.C. and Hawk Mountain have partnerned to bring the very best birding excursions focused exclusively on raptors. Each tour is designed to connect you with spectacular concentrations of birds of prey and/or a large variety of species, including those rarely seen.

Raptours donates to Hawk Mountain 5% of profits for every tour booked by a Sanctuary member. Why? Because today Raptours is owned and operated by Hawk Mountain trainee graduate Sergio Seipke. He believes the partnership provides him the opportunity to give back to an organization that has meant—and still means—so much to him.
