Base information


Naturalist Journeys LLC


Founded in 1998 by owner, Peg Abbott, we are a top nature and birding tour company offering tours and travel worldwide, from the birding Mecca of Portal, Arizona. Individually, we are naturalists, ornithologists, birders, biologists, entomologists, geologists, photographers, artists, and more. Collectively, we are lovers of nature, travel, good food, and good company. You won’t find us flying through our bird lists, checking off target birds and moving on. We relish the art of birding, savoring our experience with each creature, while enjoying the camaraderie of like-minded travelers. And although birds are our specialty, natural history and geology play a heavy part in our exploration of the world around us. Beyond managing every aspect of your travel experience, we are committed to using local providers, environmentally sound lodges where possible, and exploring with a sense of the spontaneous that keeps travel fun. We work tirelessly to ensure that our trips run smoothly for our clients, while benefiting the communities in which we travel. Where possible we connect our efforts to local conservation efforts. We live, and love, what we do.
