Iberá, located in the central northeast part of the Corrientes Province of Argentina, covers over 1,300,000 hectacres and is one of the most important natural regions of the Southern hemispfere. Simply put, it is a drainage basin that is continuously filled with rainwater making it one of the most important natural areas in the Southern Cone. Due to the area’s flat landscape, there is little outflow creating an extensive freshwater reserve. Half of Iberá is underwater. However, the region is much more than only “esteros” or “wetlands”. Iberá also encompasses high grasslands, savannahs, and forests. This integrated combination of wet and dry ecosytems harbors a great diversity of flora and fauna as well as spectacular landscapes.

    following activities for this day. (To be confirmed upon arrival with your personalized guide).

    The boat trips are done in Laguna Iberá (lagoon) and Colonia Carlos Pellegrini. The village has an interpretation center and very nice trails along the lagoon and through native forest. The economy of this town was transformed in 1983 when the Provincial Park was created. Before then the inhabitants used to hunt for a living. Today Pellegrini is a proud town that learned how to conserve and care for its natural heritage and make of it a way of living.

    The boat trips allow you to get closer to the alligators, pampas deer and hundreds of birds without scaring them. The tours take around 2 hours and are frequently done over the Corrientes stream, Miriñay River and Iberá Lagoon Rincón del Socorro sets itself as an excellent location for bird watching, where the visitor has the possibility of observing native species like the yellow cardinal (Gubernatrix cristata), the strangetailed tyrant (Alectrurus risora), and the crowned eagle (Harpia harpyja), among others. In total, the complete list of birds in the region reaches 350 species.

    Horseback rides – walks and boat trips might be combined with night safaris that make possible magnificent encounters with a very active wildlife that takes advantage of the cool nights to go hunting. If the sky is clear, night sky watching might also take place. This activity sometimes is also accompanied by a spectacular nature show: thousands of fireflies decorating the surroundings. It seems like they are trying to copy the Milky Way.
