Endemics of the Rainforest

Looking for birds of the temperate rainforest.

A full day excursión looking for the birds of the temperate rainforest : from the elusives Tapaculos as Chucao Tapaculo, Black -throated Huet Huet, Ochre-flanked Tapaculo to some specialties as the Des Mur`s Wiretail, the White-Throated Tree-Runner and the Patagonian Sierra-Finch, among others.

The National Park Alerce Andino is hanging between mountains, volcanoes and the Pacific Ocean. To arrive there we will drive along the coast through the beginning of the Carretera Austral, with great opportunities to spot migrant shore birds.

We will explore the Park along paths surrounded by the evergreen temperate rainforest having the opportunity to find the Alerce tree (Fitzroya Cupressoides), one of the most longevous trees in the world . The transformation during millions of years of these mountains created a landscape full of rivers, waterfalls and lagoons.
