Because of its diverse habitat array, ranging from the high Andes to excellent lowland rainforest, north-western South America has the highest avian diversity in the world. Ecuador is fortuitously situated within the heart of this fantastic ecological region, boasting a bird list of over 1700 species! Furthermore, its small size, good infrastructure, unsurpassable scenery and friendly people make Ecuador one of the planet’s most delightful birding tour destinations. From the fabulous Sacha Lodge, with its world-famous Canopy Tower and Canopy Walkway, to the endemic-rich Andean slopes, this tour offers the very best in South American Birding!
