At a Glance

The rainforests of Brazil give shelter and life to more than 1,800 bird species, making the Amazon region the most diverse bird habitat in the world — not to mention a haven for birders seeking to add exotic species to their life lists. On a birding adventure that makes its way from rainforest trails and river shorelines to ranches and nature reserves, join ornithologists and local experts as you search for Cryptic Forest Falcons, Pompadour Cotingas, Dark-Winged Trumpeters and much, much more.
Small Group
Love to learn and explore in a small-group setting? These adventures offer small, personal experiences with groups of 10 to 24 participants.

Best of all, you'll ...

  • Journey by small boat along the Teles River for opportunities to spot bird life on the water and river banks.
  • Get a “birds-eye view” of the surrounding forest as you enjoy tree-top birding from a 164-foot observation tower.
  • Thrill in a chance to spot a Harpy Eagle nest in the nature reserve in Alta Floresta.
