Tour Overview:

Peru is a country that defines diversity. Not only does it have over 1800 species of birds (making it one of the best countries for birding on the planet), it has habitats ranging from one of the driest deserts in the world, to one of the highest peaks in the Americas, to a huge swathe of virgin Amazon rainforest that defies superlatives. This tour targets a large number of endemic species that occur in the Andes of Central Peru, with highlights like Golden-backed Mountain-Tanager (surely one of the best tanagers in the world), the ultra-rare Junin Grebe and White-bellied Cinclodes, charismatic inca-finches, and White-cheeked Cotinga. We won’t ignore the more widespread species, and birds like Diademed Sandpiper-Plover could beat out the endemics on the list of favorites. Add to that some of the best scenery anywhere, and you have a truly unforgettable tour. This is quite an intense trip, and long drives and several very early starts are necessary.
