Monarchs of Mexico

Limited space remaining on this confirmed departure! Please enquire.
 
Every winter, millions of Monarch butterflies arrive in the forests of Michoacán in central Mexico. These spectacular gatherings have generated tremendous interest from naturalists worldwide. While some scientists recently confirmed that Monarchs use an internal compass to find their way here, mystery still surrounds their choice of these specific favoured patches of rural Mexico, often including the exact same trees!

On this tour, we’ll have a chance to discover this region and visit the Monarchs’ wintering grounds that have been designated as a UNESCO World Heritage Site. During our time, we’ll enjoy a small number of excellent lodgings and their surroundings in the rural Mexican countryside. Our experience will be further enhanced by the unique complement of wild species here including a unique assortment of flora and bird life too.

Join lepidopterist and Monarch expert Jessica Linton for this special tour as she returns to explore the wonders of the Monarch migration!
