There are plenty of reasons to travel to Chile. As the most populous country in South America and on of the largest Spanish-speaking country in the world, Chile has distinct and beautiful geography, interesting history and culture, thriving nightlife, and unique local cuisine.
Birding is the opposite of being at the movies—you’re outside, not sitting in a windowless box; you’re stalking wild animals, not looking at pictures of them. You’re dependent on weather, geography, time of day—if you miss the prothonotary warbler, there isn’t a midnight showing. On the other hand, birding, like movie going, is at heart voyeuristic, and you can’t do it without technology—to bring birds closer you must interpose binoculars between yourself and the wild world. To find them in the wild, you need planes, trains, automobiles, and motorboats. Birds are natural; birders aren’t.
Or maybe you want to combine some hikes through pristine forests with a full immersion experience into local culture?
If you don’t find the adventure that you are looking for in our catalogue or website, our team will be glad to design the best itinerary based on your interests and wishes!
