Tours / Marvelous hummingbird photo tour in Peru

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. Peru is a country that has 127 hummingbirds, of which, 14 are endemic and 16 are of restricted distribution.
Unlike other countries such as Costa Rica or Ecuador, Peru is not very visited, however, the variety of its climates and habitats makes it possible to find more birds and many incredible and unique ones, such as antpittas, cotingas, tanagers, finches, many of them are still waiting to be new species.
We are going to take advantage of our trip to photograph many of them.


Our trips are designed to take advantage of the best season, and find the desired birds with their best plumage and with our experience, obtain the best photographs.
