Join charismatic VENT tour leader Doris Valencia as she guides us through the birds, landscapes, and culture of her native Peru. Our program begins with "Southern Peru: Feathers & Traditions," a captivating journey blending birdwatching with cultural exploration. From the majestic Andean peaks to the ancient Inca ruins, Doris will guide us through a diverse mountain landscape teeming with birds, including endemic species like the Bearded Mountaineer and White-tufted Sunbeam hummingbirds. On the cultural front, you’ll be immersed in Peru's rich heritage as Doris takes you through bustling markets and connects you with indigenous communities, all while savoring the tantalizing flavors of Peruvian cuisine. Next, embark on an adventure along the legendary Manu Road with "Southern Peru: Birding the Enchanting Manu Road." Discover the biodiversity of the Andean cloud forests and the lush lowland jungles of Manu National Park, home to a kaleidoscope of tropical bird species. With Doris leading the way, we'll witness mesmerizing bird spectacles, from colorful hummingbirds to majestic Andean Cocks-of-the-rock, and learn about the eco-lodges where we’ll spend each evening—each lodge carefully selected by Doris for its comfort and delicious Peruvian fare. An expert birder and naturalist, Doris also brings encyclopedic knowledge of the culture and history of Peru, making her the ideal guide for those with a diversity of interests.
