We offer a variety of Birding tours in Peru, visiting an astounding diversity of habitats. Please have a look at the Bird Tours Peru page to get an impression of what is possible. It goes without saying that the various itineraries can be adjusted – the itineraries presented are based on the minimum number of days to make them successful, but adding days increases chances of finding hard to see or rare species.
These itineraries form templates for our Customized Tours and Fixed Departures. Most of our trips are small groups of birders who ask us to build itineraries for them, often using our standard itineraries and adding days where they have particular interest.
Sky is the limit for these tours – we have the necessary experience in Peru to advise you as to what is feasible and how best to achieve your wishes, be they a long list of difficult endemics or a relaxing holiday in a birdwatching paradise. We vary our fixed departures from year to year, mostly based on previous successes and client feedback, but also because our guides are passionate birders, not simply list-builders – they truly enjoy birdwatching in all its variety, and it shows during our tours.
