Birding Peru Anytime

Every week Mo-Fri throughout the year Kolibri attempts to run three different 5 day tours. They are our most popular programs and perfect for those with little time. You can of course combine them into one longer trip. They are:
Photography friendly Machu Picchu and Cusco endemics - with extreme comfort.
Manu road. Best season and drier mid-April to mid-December - although birding can be very good also in the rainy season between showers.
Northern Peru transect Tarapoto-Jaen or vice versa with Marvelous Spatuletail and Long-whiskered Owlet. Note that the male Spatuletail often lack spatulas in July-Aug.
When you book, we shall enter the dates in the calendar so other people will see that these trips are running these dates and they could book the same date for a better price for everyone.
Having said that, just booking any date yourself or with your partner at the date you prefer will not break the bank. $1000 surcharge for a single person + single supplement. $500 surcharge per person if only two people. $250/person surcharge with three people, and no surcharge with groups of 5 or more.
Learn more about how it all works by reading the blog post about Birding Peru Anytime.
