There are great chances to see stunning and unique birds on our Northern Peru Birding and Archaeology Tour. Combine the birding with the archaeological wonders of the area and we have a special tour designed to keep both cultural and bird connoisseurs happy. Starting at the coast we take in some of the pre-Inca attractions there and then head to the Northern Peruvian Andes. We will visit Gocta and the citadel of Kuelap, plus birding opportunities at Valley of the Condors and Abra Patricia where you have the chance of seeing the fabled Long Whiskered Owlet. The tour stays in accommodation that allows early starts and good birding possibilities.
