​Northern Ecuador Photography Tour:
from Quito, Ecuador

November 23 - December 2, 2018

Extension to Napo Wildlife Center:

December 2 - 6, 2018


Ecuador is one of the best places in the world to photograph hummingbirds.  Lodges with feeders kept full of fresh sugar water attract a myriad of species.  And a wide range of habitats means we will encounter a wide variety of hummingbirds and other birds on this exciting tour.  We'll visit a range of habitats as we travel from lowlands to high elevations, topping out at 14,000 feet.  We’ll cover both the east and west slopes of the Andes.  This will lead to a very impressive diversity of great photo opportunities with tanagers, antpittas, hummingbirds, toucanet, barbets, Oilbird, flycatchers and much, much more.

Along the way, we will stay at several wonderful and well-known birding lodges including Wildsumaco, Guango Lodge, and Septimo Paraiso. These lodges provide great accommodations and amazing food as well as many amazing birds at each property.

At the conclusion of this tour, you have the opportunity to join Brian for a few additional days in the Amazon! This exciting extension to the Napo Wildlife Center will give us the opportunity to photograph a vastly different set of birds then the rest of this tour. The extension will take us to the Ecuadorian Amazon and one of the top lodges in this part of the world. From photographing canopy species at eye level from their Canopy Observation Tower to enjoying canoe rides on the lakes and rivers to photography species such as Yellow-billed Tern, there will always be exciting photographic opportunities!
