Birding Tour Peru: Northwest and Abra Patricia Mountains 2018

Duration: 15 or 18 days

We’re excited to bring you this fantastic ‘Birding Tour Peru’ adventure. Birding in Peru is a great trip that will offer an amazing set of endemic and classic Neotropical birds such as Long-whiskered Owlet, Marvelous Spatuletail, Peruvian Plantcutter, White-winged Guan, Little Inca Finch, Hoatzin, Oilbird, Rufous-crested Coquette, White-eared Solitaire, Golden-headed Quetzal, Channel-billed Toucan, Andean Cock-of-the-rock, Ash-throated Antwren, Fiery-throated Fruiteater, and many more.

It is an excellent opportunity for those who cannot travel for three weeks or more in Northern Peru but want to see the spatuletail as a priority. This Birding Tour Peru excursion will take you from the coast of northwestern Peru, where we will explore deciduous and dry habitats, to the lushness of the humid montane forest of Abra Patricia and the tropical foothills of San Martín, where we will look for foothill and Amazon birds.

A 4-day extension for the more adventurous will take us to the home of the Scarlet-banded Barbet, a bird that has not been seen by more than 30 people in the world, but it is accessible today on our 15-day Northern Peru tour (also part of our Birding Tour Peru collection). This extension, however, is rather strenuous. It requires a 40km drive (which can take more than four hours) in special 4x4s on an extremely bad road, and the birding terrain itself demands good physical fitness.
