Minnesota: Winter Finches and Owls Tour Pricing

2023 and 2024 Pricing: $1,790 US Dollars or £1,430 GBP* for 5 Days and 4 Nights

 

Inclusions: 

  • The tour package includes all lodging, some meals* (see below), 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 the United States (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:

    • Local ground transport is included. This includes a van throughout the trip.

    • The tour price also includes the pelagic birding tour price as well, by boat.

    • For the first night of the trip, we use a hotel that provides free airport transfers. However, in many cases, we have the trip guide pick you up at the airport upon arrival. 

    • We arrange for a transfer back to the airport at the end of the trip, or to a hotel that will provide you with free transport service.                                                                                  

  • 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 or eight participants. We are happy to provide pricing for private groups with fewer than seven participants.

 

*Pricing Notes and More Details:

 

  • US Dollar Pricing: The price is fixed in US Dollars (USD).

  • British Pound* Pricing: (1) Our 2024 (and late 2023) 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 May 8, 2023). (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.   

  • Note on Meal Inclusion: Meals include breakfast as provided by the hotels each day following Day 1 of the trip. 

  • Note on Beverage Inclusion: Each day, we provide water for refilling your personal bottles during the birding day. 

  • Group Size: We anticipate a group of 7 or 8 participants, and pricing is based on this group size.

 

Optional Costs for Booking the Trip:

 

Single Room Supplement: The single supplement for this trip is $320 USD (or £260). This 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 with a person of the same sex.
