Peru icon

Peru, a land of stark contrast and amazing beauty, is one of the leading world destinations in which to enjoy a wonderful diversity of birds. Our tours cover a multitude of habitats from lowland rainforest, tropical dry forest, higher cloud forest, on to the high Andes through elfin forest and eventually to the Pacific coastal deserts and shores.

Birdwatching icon

We run scheduled tours that range from one to three weeks, always on small size groups. We can run private trips customized to your personal needs. We also offer bird module tours, four to five days on average each, that will allow you to set your own itinerary, according to your main birding interests or time availability.

Lodges icon

We stay at cosy lodges and hotels, some run by local communities, eat the fascinating local food, taste many exotic fruits and juices, and experience the real Peru. Our vehicle fleet ranges from 4WD trucks to reach the most inaccessible places and birds, to comfortable minibuses with plenty of space for scopes, binoculars, handbooks and, of course, your legs!

AND BIRDWATCHERS SAY …

We did a North Peru birding tour in June 2012.  It was fantastic.  I obtained photos of over 400 species of birds, most of which new to me (lifers) and including some very rare species.  I liked being close to hummingbirds at the feeders.  In addition to the birds we got to see some great scenery in the Andes, boat trips on a tributary of the Amazon river, and the impressive Gocta falls. I felt completely safe at all times on the tour.  Highly recommended for both serious and casual birders alike.
