Birding Chile, A Feast for the Senses (and Birdwatchers Alike)


Chile is a land of huge contrasts, truly a 'geographic extravaganza'. From arid deserts and salt lakes in the high Andean plateau to lush rainforests and coastal marshes, from the windswept steppes of Tierra del Fuego and Patagonia, to the impressive lakes and volcanoes of south-central Chile, our search for the birds of this long and narrow country will take us from the high Andes to the cold and productive waters of the Humboldt Current in the Pacific, birding Chile is an exciting way of discovering the avian endemics and specialties of this 3,000-mile long and narrow biogeographical island and explore and enjoy its marvelous landscapes, excellent infrastructure, great cuisine and fabulous wines. Read more...

From the Founder's Desk


"If you’re flicking through the pages of this catalogue, chances are you either met us in the 25th Birdfair or have requested for a printed copy through our website, or are maybe browsing through a digital online version of it. Either way, you just might have been toying with the idea of travelling to southern South America, so now that we’ve been introduced, why not visiting us back home and letting us show you why we love this land and nature so much?" Read more...

& Social Networks

Our naturalists and guides are periodically delivering short notes accompanying photographs taken in our tours, to let you have a virtual peek into the wonders that we experience first-hand in the field.

This material, which is shared through our Wildlife Blog into social networks such as Google+Twitter, Facebook and Pinterest, is in the format of a brief, easy-to-read “mini-article”, but on the other hand it is intended to be of high quality both visually and in written content, so you can enjoy the photographs while learning a little bit about the natural history of the subject. Check out our Wildlife Blog here.
