Chile & Argentina: The Birding Corridor

The birding andean crossing

This unique tour offers the best spots for birding in North Patagonia. Moreover, it’s a great opportunity to experience the magnificent sceneries on both sides of the Andes. This is a journey full of diversity: from the dry steppe of the eastern side to the green valleys of the west, to the Andes range. Explore the temperate rain forest and the Pacific coast to the island of Chiloé.

The great land connection of this portion of Patagonia makes it possible to have a close encounter with Andean Condors, flying at just a few meters from you. Be ready to navigate toward colonies of Humboldt and Magellanic Penguins on the coast. Your bird list will be filled with hundreds of species while you enjoy a spectacular geographical mix of mountains, volcanoes, lakes, steppe, coast and islands.
