Winged jewels galore
Enjoy watching dozens of different species of hummingbirds, experience their amazing and frantic lifestyle in one place. Original to the American continent, hummingbirds are considered to be the most attractive and exotic birds in the world.
Colombia has a lot to say about hummingbirds, being the nation with the most species. In a rural area near the town of La Calera and around an hour and a half away by car from Bogotá is the astonishing Hummingbird Observatory. A place where you will be stimulated by the vivid colors and unique sounds of these majestic creatures.
Feel them flapping their wings near you as they are feeding from the flowers in a beautiful garden. With some luck you may even get to see the legendary sword-billed hummingbird, whose beak is longer than its body.
Led by our expert bilingual guides, we learn about the main characteristics of hummingbirds and specifically of the many different species found in the Observatory. Also learn about the importance of these birds for the ecosystem they live in and about the splendid conservation endeavor that is being done by the family who started and runs the project.
Enjoy a delicious snack in the Observatory and maybe compliment it with a typical treat from the town of La Calera. Depending on your interests and needs you may want to add a City Tour of Bogotá or a Tour to the towns near the city. Always having a comfortable and safe private transport at your disposal.
