Guaranteed Tours

Maine and New Hampshire with Luke Seitz - Highlights the best of New England birding, from Bicknell’s Thrush to seabirds. One space remains. 11-20 June.

Uganda with Brian Finch - Uganda is the jewel in the crown of East Africa, filled with excellent birds such as Shoebill and Green-breasted Pitta and mammal highlights that include Mountain Gorilla and Chimpanzee. Two spaces remain. 20 June-9 July. 

Arizona Second Spring with Jon Dunn or Jake Mohlmann - Excellent birding as the summer monsoons bring moisture and awaken a ”second spring” full of birdsong, peak diversity, and good chances for rarities. Two departures each with one space remaining. 25 July-5 August or 31 July-11 August. 

Ecuador: Mindo and the Northwest Andes with Luke Seitz - Superb Andean birding with up to 40 hummingbird species. 2-10 July.

The Scandinavian Peninsula is a vast region rich in birdlife. Every autumn, countless millions of breeding birds empty out of the northern forests and fells for southern climes.
