British Columbia Winter Birding
2022 Trip Pricing: $3,280 CAD, (estimated at $2,590 USD* or £1,940 GBP*) for 9 Days and 8 Nights
The tour package includes all lodging, breakfast, and access fees to reserves, parks, and other birding sites.
Premier Bird Guide: All of our tours use the services of an excellent bird guide, often a well-recognized expert on birding in this area.
Top-Rated Preparation Services: We support your preparation for the trip. We provide information on the birds you will see and all the travel details, including all logistic details (arrival plans, trip itinerary, lodging details, and more), information on entry into Canada (if applicable), and information on travel health issues, packing information and more. Most of our clients comment that our Trip Participation Guide is the best they have ever seen.
Transport and Airport Transfers:
o Local ground transport is included. This includes a van throughout the trip.
o In most cases, arrival transfers are not needed as the group will meet at the Vancouver airport at mid-day. If you arrive a day early, we will book you at a Vancouver area hotel with free airport transfers. At the end of the tour, we will drop all participants at the Kelowna airport.
Acre for Bird Conservation: As part of our efforts to support bird conservation, we purchase in the name of customers (for each booking) at least one acre (but averaging between three and four acres) of wilderness to support bird conservation. As our trip prices are often 20% (and often even a better deal) less than our competition, this does not really cost you more and it is a great way to support bird conservation around the world.
Small-Group Pricing: All the prices mentioned above are for tour groups of seven to eight participants. We are happy to provide pricing for private groups of any size.
