Panama Trip

November 2-12, 2023

Hawks Aloft Member Tour

You spoke and we listened!

Discover the Darién and the River of Raptors With Hawks Aloft and Canopy Family Canopy Tower and Canopy Camp Darien, Panama

$3850 All Inclusive from Panama City

The first planned trip coming up! We last visited Canopy Camp Darién in 2019. Everyone agreed that it was an incredible trip, among the best most of us have ever experienced. Highlights of that trip included: a Harpy Eagle on her nest with a nestling too small to be seen; a Crested Eagle in Panama City, migrating raptors flying in formation with wings set heading toward Colombia, a veritable river of raptors overhead, and even an active lek of Golden-headed Manakins right on the grounds of Canopy Camp.

The first days of this visit are timed to take advantage of peak raptor migration, where an average of 3+ million raptors have been documented flying over Panama City. From there, we will move on to Canopy Camp in the Darién Province with excellent chances of finding Harpy Eagle, Crested Eagle and other rare species.

Panama is a biologically and culturally diverse country connecting North and South America. Canopy Company has operated ecotourism lodges in Panama since 1999 with the mission to share the nature, history and culture of the Republic of Panama with passion and enthusiasm, focused on customer satisfaction and guided by the principles of conservation and social responsibility.

Join us as we travel south to Panama in 2023!

Explore Iceland in 2023:
The Land of Fire and Ice

June 1 - June 11, 2023

Hawks Aloft Member Tour

In the land of fire and ice, massive ice-blue glaciers contrast sharply with bright green meadows, black lava fields, and geothermal lagoons to create dramatic, captivating landscapes. The country’s avifauna is equally impressive: located at the junction of two oceans, it hosts a unique mix of vagrant and migratory birds from both Europe and North America. This adventure with Hawks Aloft and Holbrook Travel offers a look at Icelandic breeding and non-breeding bird populations, from the waterfowl of Lake Mývatn to the iconic Atlantic Puffins. Seek out auks, petrels, cormorants, gannets, gulls, terns, waders, stilts, and birds of prey while enjoying hikes, boat trips, and a bird museum to enrich your understanding of the island’s natural history.

Highlights

  • Bird the hotspots of Lake Mývatn and the River Laxá, where sightings may include more than a dozen duck species.
  • Trace the fjords of northwest Iceland and see the majestic cliffs supporting populations of auks, murres, and kittiwakes.
  • Navigate Breiðafjörður Bay for up-close views of Great Cormorants, European Shags, and Atlantic Puffins.
  • Look for humpback, blue, and minke whales and a variety of pelagic birds on a whale-watching excursion.
  • Visit Sigurgeir’s Bird Museum, considered the largest known private bird collection in Iceland.
