Northeast Brazil Tour Pricing

2025 Pricing: $6,890 US Dollars*, or £5,430 GBP*

for 15 Days and 14 Nights

 

with Minas Gerais Extension: From $2,240 US Dollars* or £1,760 GBP* for 5 Days and 4 Nights

 

Inclusions: 

 

  • The Tour package includes all lodging, meals*, 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. We often use Lelis Navarrete on these trips.

  • 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 Brazil, 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: Local ground (by vehicle and often large transport van) transport as described in the trip itinerary.   

  • 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 cost you more and it is a great way to support bird conservation around the world.

  • Small-Group Pricing: All the above prices are for tour groups of six to eight participants. We will offer reasonable small-group supplements for groups of 3 to 5 participants as well. We are also happy to provide pricing for private groups with fewer than six participants.

  • Private and Custom Group Pricing: We are glad to provide pricing for smaller groups (including couples) or custom groups.

 

Important Note: 

  • Depending upon interest and group size, we will offer an extension to this tour (including one for Cherry-throated Tanager). We can also link these tours to other Brazil tours, including Pantanal, Atlantic Forest, and the southern Amazon.

*Pricing Notes and More Details:

 

  • Pricing Fixed in BRL: Almost all of our tours are priced in US Dollars. Our partners (who specialize in NE Brazil) price their tours in Brazilian Real (BRL), their local currency. So we have provided pricing here in estimated US Dollars and estimated British Pounds. However, the main tour is fixed in Brazilian Reals at 35,000 BRL for 15 days and 14 nights. The fixed price for the extension is 11,400 BRL for 5 days and 4 nights.

  • US Dollar Pricing: The US Dollar has been fairly strong against the Brazilian Real in the last few years; however, this has been fluctuating. However, these prices are fixed in BRL (as indicated above).

  • Pricing in British Pounds: (1) Our 2025 (and late 2024) price estimates are mostly based on US Dollars; so, our GBP/British Pound pricing is based upon an exchange rate of .79 GBP (British Pound) per US Dollar (the exchange rate on March 19, 2024). (2) We will charge you the actual transaction rate here, but please note that we work to minimize transaction costs. Using Transferwise, we usually pay under one-half a percent (and sometimes less) on the actual exchange. (3) Due to costs related to UK travel regulations, our tours booked and paid through BlueTailBirding.com (for the UK and European clients) will cost 200 GBP more. Please contact us anytime with questions here.   

  • Bank Fees: We do not charge bank fees for wire transfers for clients paying into our accounts in the United States, the United Kingdom, and/or Canada.

  • Note on Meal Inclusion: Meals include three meals per day during any full day of the trip. The arrival day does have supper, as we arrive at the lodge in the afternoon. The departure day includes only breakfast, as most flights leave in the morning.

  • Note on Beverage Inclusion: Most of our meals are provided by the lodges, and we follow their practices in providing beverages at mealtimes. Breakfast usually includes coffee or tea and/or juice (as provided by the lodge), and box lunches include either bottled water or juice. Other beverages served at supper are your choice and are an additional expense that you pay to the restaurant directly. We provide water at the table for supper. We also provide bottled water during the birding day.

  • Group Size: We anticipate a group of 6 to 8 participants, and pricing is based on this group size. We will offer a moderate and reasonable small-group supplement for 3 to 5 participants. Even 2 participants can be accommodated fairly easily here.

 

Optional Costs for Booking the Trip:

Single Room Supplement: $680 USD (or £540 GBP*) for the main trip and $200
USD (or £160 GBP*) for extension is the price we charge for the additional cost of anyone not sharing a room with another birder (and/or a spouse). If you want a single room, please let us know. We are often able to find a roommate for those wanting to share a room.

Notes on Other Tour Costs: Exclusions:  

  • The main tour for Northeast Brazil tours usually will require flights from a major Brazilian international airport (such as Sao Paulo, GRU) to Fortaleza at the start of the tour and a flight at the end of the tour from Porto Seguro. The extension will require one additional flight. Flights internal to Brazil usually booked in the $100 to $140 US Dollar range. I would budget $200 to $280 for main tour flights, and add $100 to $120 more if doing the Minas Gerais extension. We will bill the actual flight cost.

  • The tour fee does not include taxes/fees for entering or exiting the country, telephone calls, laundry, and other items of a personal nature.

  • Tips for birding guides and trip drivers are not included in the tour price. You can choose to pre-pay trips to meal service and housekeeping staff.
