America, Terra biodiversa
Nature has no borders, as the birds constantly remind us. Following their images, we have pushed back our own and, since 2005, we have walked the South American trails. From Guajira to Tierra del Fuego, and from Chocó to the Brazilian Atlantic forests, our quest has led us to the best birdwatching and photography spots of the continent, following the flight of these beings that fascinate us, inspire us, transport us and make us forget our own limits. All this to try to offer you singular trips, unique encounters, indelible experiences, accompanied by expert and passionate ornithological guides.
On the agenda for the next few months: The Perija mountain range is the most northerly region of the Andes, among the 400 species of birds present here, 10 are endemic. Further south, the magical cloud forests of the Choco-montane bio-region will open its doors to us to enjoy the sightings of rare and isolated species of Ecuador, such as the Tanager finch, the Plate-billed mountain toucan and the Beautiful jay. It will be good and relaxing to stroll on the olivine beaches of Punta Cormoran on the Galápagos Archipelago where the San Cristóbal Mockingbird abounds. We can also explore the bamboo forests of the Manu National Park, deep in the Peruvian Amazon, in search of the numerous endemic antwren, antshrike and other antbirds. Meeting conservationists in the heart of the Brazilian Atlantic forests will also be on the agenda. We will leave to survey the great savannahs of the Pantanal, refuge of seriemas, chachalacas, jabirus and the mythical Jaguar. Between the steppes of Patagonia and the Chilean Andes, the Paine massif combines majestic landscapes, photographs of Puma and austral endemics. Further south, almost at the end of the world, we will explore the Beagle Channel in search of the Magellanic woodpecker and the rare Macaroni penguin. At the extreme end of our world we will explore the Great White Continent where the largest colonies of king penguins in the world are found.
All these trips are dedicated to birding, naturalist encounters and understanding of neotropical ecosystems. Our expert guides will use their experience and patience to make sure you don’t miss a thing of these natural experiences.

Peru is a country known around the world for its millennia-old cultural heritage, but its natural treasures are just as desirable to the discerning naturalist. A land of contrasts and stunning beauty, Peru remains one of South America's top touristic destinations. You can explore both the cold and generous waters of the Pacific coastline, the Andes that rise above 6,000 metres, whose snowmelt waters trickle down to the Yungas, before entering the Amazon rainforests. All these conditions generate a very…See trips
Frozen by time and isolated from the rest of the world some 600 miles west of the Ecuadorian coast, one of the most legendary archipelagos on the planet emerges from the tropical waters of the Pacific. A true naturalist's Eden for some, a laboratory of evolution for others, the enchanted archipelago has nevertheless remained for a long time, as Charles Darwin described it, an "infernal region".
Considered one of the most active volcanic areas on the planet, the relief and…See trips
