Peru Bird Tours and More
Chalco Birdwatching offers more than just Peru bird tours, we are also experts in wildlife photography and general nature tours that immerse you in the Peruvian lifestyle.
As a specialist local birding operator, we can offer bird tours on request throughout the year to help you make the most of your time in Peru. And on our wildlife tours we not only showcase the country’s wealth of bird species (Peru boast a staggering of 1,875 birds, 110 of them endemic) but also its history and culture.
The company is based in Arequipa, the second biggest city in Peru, and therefore strategically placed to access the Colca Canyon, one of the deepest canyons of the world. Chalco Birdwatching stands out as a Peruvian birdwatching tour operator in this part of the world because, as locals, we know Peru and especially the Colca Valley area birds and the indigenous people, their customs and culture. We also provide exceptional value whilst aiming to provide an unsurpassed birdwatching experience for birders, photographers and naturalists.
Our Peru birding tours are lead and guided by the owner of the company, with small group sizes typically ranging from one person to four. This means you get a very personal experience and the chance to get good views of a wide range of birds!
Chalco Birdwatching also offers custom wildlife tours to other destinations in Peru and we will advise, design and quote on these tours free of charge, with no commitment necessary!
