2021: Due to COVID-19, we're grounded for the moment. But check back often, to see where we might go next. Take care!
BirdNote travel adventures aren’t just for experienced birders. They’re for anyone who appreciates the beauty and mystery of the natural world.
BirdNote partners with Victor Emanuel Nature Tours to offer a breadth of immersive cultural and educational experiences in addition to exceptional birding and wildlife viewing. Regardless of the destination, our expert guides, small groups, and comfortable accommodations take the stress out of planning a trip.
Here’s how BirdNote travelers have described their experiences:
“What a wonderful trip. I can’t stop smiling when I think about it. Thank you all! Where shall we go next?”
--Kit (Galápagos Islands 2018)
“What I loved about your 2014 Cuba trip was that it combined cultural experiences with birding.”
--Janey (Cuba 2014)
“We couldn't have had better guides. Both got us on time everywhere to see incredible birds. And demonstrated exceptional skill, local knowledge, and patience.”

Why We Travel
BirdNote is committed to responsible ecotourism that promotes conservation and contributes to local economies. You can offset emissions associated with BirdNote travel (or any trip!) through Cool Effect.
BirdNote is occasionally asked about our travel program -- if it's ethical to travel, with the climate warming around us. Senior science advisor Gordon Orians offers these thoughts about ecotourism and tackles the difficult subject of weighing the costs and benefits of traveling.
Dan Moore, Vice President of the BirdNote Board of Directors, also penned this interesting blog post, discussing the positive impacts of ecotourism, as well as the necessity to clean up air and sea travel.
