Peruvian Mammals, amphibians, reptiles and butterflies
The habitats we pass through are host to an enormous diversity of additional exotic and endangered species, particularly butterflies, amphibians (including colourful poison dart frogs) and reptiles. We have experienced local guides for the frog-spotters amongst you or for butterfly enthusiasts wishing to add an extra element to their tour.
Sighting of unusual mammals such as the wild Spectacled Bear are a possibility around Chaparrí Ecological Reserve along with the diminutive Silky Anteater in the Huallaga Valley.
Cultural attractions along the Northern Birding Route include the spectacular Chachapoyan fortress of Kuelap and opportunities to observe Amazonian indigenous communities who reside on the riverbanks of Amazon tributaries.
