This short tour (5 nights / 6 days) aims at seeing and enjoying the greatest number of bird species within the most magnificent landscapes of the Central Andes of Colombia, covering a wide range of ecosystems in a big altitudinal gradient, without the need for traveling long distances. Tour itinerary covers thoroughly native forests within protected watersheds that supply water to the coffee region of the country.

This “compact” tour visits the very best forest remnants and nature reserves within the buffer zone of Los Nevados National Park. Here, environmental authorities working together with private nature reserves have created an extraordinary regional system of nature reserves, many of which have been declared as Important Bird Areas (IBAs), holding some of Colombia´s rarest and most threatened species.

Tour itinerary has been carefully planned in order to cover the greatest number and variety of nature ecosystems within the West slope of the Central Andes, from 4,200 to 13,100 ft (1,300 – 4,000 m). This region is “hometown” for our company and guides. Thus, we apply our first-hand knowledge of the area, selecting the best birding places, the most beautiful landscapes and convenient routes, putting them all together in what surely is a great tour, with the opportunity to see a large number of endemics and specialties.
