Full-Day Tours

Includes a Box Lunch

Schedule: 7 am to 7 pm
Cost: USD 69
Environment and description: In the heart of the Park, a visit to the protected heart of the wetlands, through dirt roads that lead to Cambyretá. There we will reach the Don Luis Reserve, where a very good representation of the Iberá’s mega-diverse environments is preserved. Here is the epicenter of macaw reintroduction programs and where there is the highest probability of seeing the famous collar-necked yetapá!
Birds: 285 species, including Alectrurus risora, Ara chloropterus, Pseudocolopteryx sclateri
Capacity: 30

By Kayak or Boat
Schedule: 7 am to 7 pm
Cost:

  • Kayak: USD 79
  • Boat: USD 84

Environment and description: The routes to Loreto, 80 km away, alternate between many hills with forests, lagoons, and pastures, with wetlands in the low-lying areas. The arrival route will be a paradise of species up to the great hill of Yatevú, where the town of Loreto is located, one of the favorite destinations for birdwatchers. We will stop for breakfast at the Iberá Birding Lodge feeders and continue until we complete all possible species.
Then we will head to one of the most recent entrances to the Iberá Park, to the port of San Antonio crossing pastures and wetlands. From there, we will enter the estuary (options of boat or kayak) through the journey that connects the Carambola Stream and cross to one of its islands where we can make a stop at its beaches. Kayak tours allow very close and silent contact with birds and other animals.
Birds: 300 species including Gubernetes yetapa, Heliomaster furcifer, Xolmis dominicus, Alectrurus risora, Donacobius atricapillus
Capacity: 24

6 am to 7 pm
Cost: USD 82
Environment and description: One of the last parks created in Argentina by the National Parks system, which brings together a combination of subtropical grasslands with Atlantic forest environments (Amazonian domain). At 120 km, the proposal is to include a different environment from Iberá to complement the species and achieve a good list for those who come from far away. Not recommended for those doing the post-tour to Iguazú because they will also make a stop here.
Birds: 345 species including Rufirallus schomburgkii, Chiroxiphia caudata, Buteogallus urubitinga
Capacity: 30

6 am to 7 pm
Cost: USD 86
Environment and description: In the heart of the Atlantic forest, the central sierras of the neighboring province of Misiones host this protected forest of more than 13,000 ha, located about 200 km from Ituzaingó. The name of the Park is due to its waterfall of more than 60 meters of the Cuña Pirú stream, and it is one of the Areas of Importance for Bird Conservation (IBAs). The diversity of toucans, tanagers, and other species typical of the jungle stands out, as well as its butterflies, mammals, and flora.
Birds: 340 including Ramphastos dicolorus, Trogon rufus, Cypseloides senex, Mesembrinibis cayennensis, Drymophila rubricollis
Capacity: 30

6 am to 7 pm
Cost: USD 74
Environment and description: Bordering the Iberá Park, we will take Route 12 which borders the Paraná River towards one of the most interesting locations for birdwatching: San Cosme. It is a rural and natural area, where conditions have been given to be a strategic enclave for birdwatchers. There, the Chaco forests converge with the Atlantic forest bordering the Paraná River, plus some patches of grassland, and the contribution of rural allochthonous plants that enrich the local flora. The result: A set of species that is difficult to find elsewhere.
Birds: 320 species including Ramphastos toco, Campylorhamphus trochilirostris, Celeus lugubris, Arremon flavirostris, Ictinia mississippiensis
Capacity: 30
