Tours / North Peru birding photo tour

The Andes mountains has created multiple habitats for birds in Peru. It is the country with the highest number of species of Tanagers, Antpittas, Furnariidaes, Flycatchers, among other bird families.
On this trip, we will go to the north of Peru, between Tarapoto and Amazonas, exploring from lowlands to cloud and elfin forests. Only then will we have the fortune to observe and photograph some of the world's best birds: the Long-whiskered Owlet, Marvelous Spatuletail, Royal Sunangel, Ochre-fronted Antpitta, and other amazing species.


Our trips are designed to take advantage of the best season and find the desired birds in their finest plumage, with our assistance so that you can capture the best photographs.
First, we will visit our Reserve Fundo Alto Nieva and neighboring locations, where we will encounter incredible species such as the Long-whiskered Owlet (E=Endemic), Ochre-fronted Antpitta (E), Rusty-tinged Antpitta (E), Johnson's Tody-tyrant (E), and Yellow-scarfed Tanager (E). We will also find Royal Sunangel, Greenish Puffleg, Peruvian Racket-tail, and Rufous-vented Whitetip hummingbirds.
Next, we will visit two spectacular Reserves where we can find the Marvelous Spatuletail (E), Emerald-bellied Puffleg, Sword-billed Hummingbird, among many others.
If conditions allow, we will explore the San Lorenzo ridge, a good spot to find the Pale-billed Antpitta (E) and Russet-mantled Softtail (E).
In another special reserve, we will observe the small and beautiful hummingbirds: Rufous-crested Coquette, Wire-crested Thorntail, as well as tanagers and tinamous at feeding stations, such as the Huallaga Tanager (E) and Burnished-buff Tanager.
Near Tarapoto, we will visit various locations where we can photograph the Koepcke's Hermit (E), Black-bellied Thorntail, Golden-collared Toucanet, Golden-headed Manakin, as well as many antbirds and tanagers.
We will also have other photographic opportunities, such as breathtaking landscapes, stunning orchids, and butterflies. We will assist you in capturing the best photographs, always with the utmost care for the conservation of these unique species and their environment.
