With over 1,900 avian species—more than any other country in the world—Colombia is a birder’s paradise waiting to be discovered. This 10-day program focuses on the highlights of the Central Andes region, famed for its high level of species diversity, including the Nevado del Ruiz, Rio Blanco Reserve, and Otún Quimbaya Fauna and Flora Sanctuary. Explore high elevation mountains, humid tropical forest, páramo, wetlands, and highland savanna habitats in search of an array of tropical avifauna, including flycatchers, hummingbirds, tanagers, toucans, and more. Throughout your journey, discover the story of conservation in Colombia, and recent efforts to utilize birding as a sustainable development resource.
