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.

In this top-end hotel program we give you a well-rounded tour that includes Machu Picchu and its history, the Inca culture and some great birding at the Abra Malaga pass. Price is elevated because we stay at the best hotels for birders at Machu Picchu and Ollantaytambo – Machu Picchu Pueblo Hotel and Pakaritampu. Both have ample beautiful gardens that attract many birds, and at Pueblo Hotel there are hummingbird and tanager feeders allowing for great photography. Of course, this trip is just as exciting for the non-birding spouse or friend, as it is for the birder in the family.
Should you want to stay at less exclusive hotels this can be arranged.
