The tropical islands of Trinidad and Tobago in the southern Caribbean are situated just off the coast of north-eastern Venezuela. It is this archipelago’s unique position, combined with a mixed terrain ranging from coastal plains to mountains, that makes it such a superb birding destination. Our tour covers the entirety of these beautiful islands, utilising fantastic accommodations in prime birding habitat. This is birding at its best and a perfect introduction to the Neotropics for those new to the habitat, combined with everything the seasoned birder could want with resident endemics and specialties that include the Bearded Bellbird, the breathtaking Scarlet Ibis, Trinidad Motmot, Tufted Coquette, and the critically endangered Endemic Trinidad Piping Guan. Photographers should also come prepared to be overwhelmed, since not only do these islands offer an impressive diversity of colourful birds such as macaws, toucans, tanagers, motmots, and hummingbirds, but many of the views are simply spectacular!

our Relaxed series of tours are designed to focus on having an enjoyable holiday with a bird and wildlife focus. Where possible; we have reduced or removed long drives, single night stays and poor/rustic accommodation. We have also sought to reduce or remove difficult hikes, narrow/muddy trails and otherwise oppressive environmental conditions. Early starts and night birding are mostly optional, and we will not spend much time searching for difficult and/or skulking species. These tours are not suitable for hardcore birders and listers, or dedicated photographers.
