At the southern tip of Patagonia there is a vast territory crowned by the majestic Paine Massif with Its stunning granite “towers” and “horns”. This paradise is protected by the Torres del Paine National Park, “the jewel in the crown” of the Chilean national park system.
Ecuador’s Yasuní National Park is one of the most diverse places on earth, spanning nearly 2.5 million acres of lush rainforest. The Ecuadorian Amazon is home to more than 600 bird species.
Ecuador has the highest bird species diversity per square kilometer on the planet and offers some of the best birding of South America. Due to the short distances to drive, good tourist infrastructure, and wonderful lodges and other facilities for birders, Ecuador is perhaps the obligatory destination on the continent!
Just 483 years ago the first man stepped onto the Galápagos Islands and marveled at this living laboratory. Today we continue to be awestruck by this constantly changing archipelago.
