This April 2020 we will be running our 50+ Hummingbirds tour to north Peru.

Marvelous Spatuletail, Sword-billed Hummingbird, Royal Sunangel, Long-tailed Sylph, Rufous-crested Coquette. These are just a few of the more than 50 hummingbird species that could be seen in 11 days in our 50+ hummingbirds tour to the forests of north-eastern Peru.

The tour starts at the hummingbird feeders of the ACONABIKH Conservation Centre, a place created for the conservation of the endemic Koepcke’s Hermit. Northwards, the tour continues along the Mayo valley and the Alto Mayo mountains. Seven feeding stations along the road offer great opportunities to see about 35 hummingbird species, including rare species like the Royal Sunangel. Other incredibly good looking hummers that are possible in this area are Long-tailed Sylph, Booted Racket-tail, Emerald-bellied Puffleg, Rufous-crested Coquette or Wire-crested Thorntail. And last but not least, the Huembo Conservation Area is the only place in the world with great chances to see the spectacular Marvelous Spatuletail.

As a bonus, the last two days of the trip are more relaxed and cultural oriented, devoted to visit the archaeological site of Kuelap. This is an impressive fortress from the pre-Inca Chachapoyan people. The site has been elected “the best far and away overseas attraction” in 2017 by the National Geographic Traveller Reader Awards in the United Kingdom.
