With optional Southern Patagonia extension. Birding Chile is a quest aimed at discovering the endemics and specialties of this 3,000-mile long and narrow biogeographical country. Chile is a land of huge contrasts, truly a geographic extravaganza. On this birding adventure we will explore Chile’s incredibly diverse habitats and marvel at some of the most beautiful landscapes on Earth, while enjoying top-class hotels and cuisine. From Mediterranean scrub to the windswept steppes of Tierra del Fuego and Patagonia, our search for the avian specialties of this long and narrow country will take us from the high Andes to the cold and productive waters of the Humboldt Current in the Pacific. We will find many interesting species, some of them with very restricted distributional ranges and some endemic to the country.
