One of the most outstanding events of colours and sounds of the Nature are Birds that here, in the Andean North of Argentina, prove to be particularly attractive.

Watching the majestic soaring Andean Condor above snow-capped peaks, feeding groups of tanagers and furnariids moving around in dense cloudforest vegetation, or thousands of Andean and Puna Flamingoes in idyllic blue lakes, we will smoothly get into this magic world.

All this with excellent food, good accommodation and the warm welcome of its people combine to make Salta, in Northwest Argentina, an unparalelled destination. A unique year-round birdwatching experience for beginners and experts alike.
