Tours / Hummingbirds from central Peru photo tour

About hummingbirds

Peru is an Andean country. The Andes mountain range has created many climates and habitats. This has allowed many species in Peru to be unique and grow isolated. For example, we can find many species of metaltail and Thornbill.
On this trip we will go for the rarely seen hummingbirds that are found in the heights of the Andes.


This photographic adventure is all about discovering and capturing breathtaking images of Peru's iconic hummingbirds, many of which are near-endemic or endemic, like the Black-breasted Hillstar, Green-headed Hillstar, Black Metaltail, Fire-throated Metaltail, Olivaceous Thornbill, Blue-mantled Thornbill, Huanuco Starfrontlet, Bronze-tailed Comet, Amethyst-throated Sunangel sp decolor, Collared Inca, Oasis Hummingbird, Peruvian Sheartail, Purple-collared Woodstar, Amazilia Hummingbird, Giant Hummingbird. If we travel a bit further, we will come across the Coppery Metaltail and the White-bellied Hummingbird.
We will also encounter other beautiful and hard to see birds during our tour, in addition to stunning Andean landscapes.
We'll photograph as many hummingbirds as possible, but we'll focus on what you won't be able to photograph elsewhere :
