Join Gina Nichol, Steve Bird and Claudio Vidal to experience Chile, a captivating country that offers some of the most breathtakingly beautiful scenery on Earth. We'll explore Chile from a wildlife perspective seeking out a variety of the country’s prized specialties and endemics.

We'll look for Diademed Sandpiper-Plover and Andean Condor in the Andes and on the coast we will concentrate in the many specialties of the Humboldt Current such as Inca Tern, Humboldt Penguin, Peruvian Booby, Guanay Cormorant and Gray Gull, plus shorebirds and waterfowl in the productive coastal wetlands. In the scrub gullies vegetated by cacti, bromeliads and other xeric vegetation, we will look for Chilean Tinamou, Chilean Mockingbird and the skulking White-throated and Dusky Tapaculos, Moustached Turca and Crag Chilia.

We will also visit the temperate southern beech forests of 'Altos de Lircay' Nature Reserve to seek for several Patagonian woodland specialties including the rare Rufous-tailed and White-throated Hawks, Austral Parakeet, Thorn-tailed Rayadito and White-throated Treerunner. Experience the fascinating and enigmatic Chiloé Island; land of myths, legends and history, with countless and outstanding natural and cultural riches. Chiloé offers a large array of species like penguins, otters, dolphins, sea lions, elusive tapaculos, raucous parakeets among many others.

This tour features three pelagic trips: One in nutrient rich Humboldt Current, one from Reloncavi Sound to look for the recently discovered Pincoya Storm Petrel, and one from Valparaiso that offers up to six albatross species: Black-browed, Salvin’s, Buller’s, Chatham, Wandering (Antipodean) and both Northern and Southern Royal albatrosses along with Petrels, Shearwaters, Wilson’s Storm Petrel, and Peruvian Diving Petrel. 


Add to this an extension to Easter Island and this is truly a trip of a lifetime.
