and New Birding Tours
“New Years at Ramsey Canyon Inn,” Arizona is sold out. Better luck next year!
There are still places on all our January tours, though “Guatemala: Tikal Pre-tour” is almost full. Just one room (maximum 2 places) left, if you get in quickly.
New “Essential Tours”
These tours are a new venture, run in conjunction with Rockjumper Birding Tours. They are designed to meet the demand for lower-priced birding tours to far-away places.
Tour costs have been reduced by offering mostly shorter tours, which concentrate on the essential birding highlights of each region, plus slightly larger group sizes, and utilizing more economical hotels and lodges. These tours are guided by professional bird tour leaders, either full-time Rockjumper guides or premier local birding experts. Our Essential tours are also not full board—allowing you, where possible, a flexibility of choices for lunches and dinners to suit your taste and budget.
The full list of these tours for 2012 includes:
Update on Alaska 2012
Alaska tours nearly always start filling up rapidly after the holidays. At present, we still have some places on nearly all our Alaska tours, but it might not be wise to delay your booking for too long. High Lonesome are THE Alaska specialists. We have longer and deeper experience than nearly all the other operators to Alaska—and that translates into MORE BIRDS, BETTER SIGHTINGS and LESS RUNNING AROUND for you.
If you already know the tours you are interested in, I suggest you make sure of your place right away. And if you can’t find exactly what you are looking for, remember that we can offer such extensive tour customization that you can virtually design your own tour.
Happy Holidays . . . and Happy Birding
