TOURS: PLANT WATCHING
We organize specialized tours for plant watching, investigation, and seed collection all across Chile. We do not just bring you there, but we provide an all-inclusive service with a qualified multi-language guide with experience in botany and photography, GPS navigation, trekking, expedition organization, and off-road adventure style trips. For all of these tours the guide will carry a small library of books (20 - 30 books with photos) to help you identify the plants. The tours are designed in such a way as to combine the scenic aspects with plant watching.
The tours are all-inclusive, lodging, food, transportation, entrance fees to National Parks, transfers.
Please note that the seed collection in national parks in Chile is strictly prohibited. Since most of our regular tour itineraries pass largely through national parks, the visitors are obviously not allowed to collect the seeds in those areas. However, for those visitors who are interested in samples of seeds from plants they would see on the trip, we offer a gift collection of seeds of about 100 species completely free of charge. Each gift seed sample contains 0.1 - 10 g. of seeds (about 100 - 200 seeds each). Alternatively we can organized specialized tours for seed collection.
To get a feel of what you can expect on our tours (or if you want to try it on your own, which may be somewhat difficult, because many places are of difficult access), visit our locations description page (not yet available). In this section we will present a detailed description of individual locations you would visit, with trekking/driving route description, interesting plant species that can be observed, etc.
