Organized by Emanuele Biggi, Alessandro Catenazzi, and Francesco Tomasinelli: A journey to discover the natural and photographic fauna and flora and culture of the great Peruvian environments. Peru is one of the countries with the highest level of biodiversity in South America, thanks to the diversity of its environments and climatic zones. During this trip we will discover and photograph some important segments of this biodiversity, with the guidance of naturalists, researchers and photographers who admire the exuberant Peruvian biodiversity.
Prominence will be given to the “lesser” animals, such as amphibians, reptiles and arthropods, which represent 90% of all animal life in Peru. We will also visit some sites of great archaeological importance, such as archaeological complexes in Cusco, Machu Picchu and the Sacred Valley. During 15 days we will experience the main ecosystems of Peru: the coastal desert, the Andes mountains, the cloud forests , and the lowland Amazon rainforest.
