We run a wide variety of tours in just about every habitat in Ontario! Our broad range of tours, includes everything from birding focused to nature and wildlife focused tours. We also feel it is important for our participants to experience the local culture of the communities we visit and of Canada. It's all a part of the experience! Our goal for each tour is not only to see as much wildlife as possible, but also to make sure that you have a great tour and enjoy the experience as much as possible.
Featured Birds and Wildlife: Each region we travel to offers its own unique bird life and wildlife. For each tour we create a list of featured birds and other wildlife specific to the region of travel. We make every attempt during our tour to find the feature birds and other wildlife on this list, as well as others that you want to see. However, we can never guarantee the sightings of a specific bird or other wildlife species. Also, some species are only visible during specific times of the year. We are always on the lookout for birds and other wildlife during our tours and in our experience part of the fun is not knowing exactly what you will see next!
Bird Lists: It just wouldn't be a birding tour without the bird list! Our guides keep track of all of the species observed or heard during a tour and after you return home you will receive an electronic copy of the list. In addition to birds, we keep track of other exciting finds including mammals, reptiles and amphibians.
Our Guides: Our guiding staff are experts in the natural history of their respective region(s). They are excellent birders who are able to identify birds and other wildlife by both sight and sound.
Tourism Promoting Conservation: We walk the walk. Our passion is birds and wildlife and to ensure that birds and wildlife are around for future generations to enjoy, we incorporate the principals of ecotourism and sustainable travel into every tour. A part of this is supporting birding and wildlife conservation projects in the regions we travel to. This may include scientific research, community development programs and habitat preservation. Natura Tours Owner, Kristen Martyn completed a post-graduate program in Ecotourism and Adventure Tourism Management and understands what it means to travel sustainably. Sustainability is at the core of each tour and we are happy to teach you about responsible travel during our tours!
