Travel Guide

The vast territory of Argentina spans 4,000 kilometers from north to south at the southern tip of the American continent, encompassing an incredible variety of biomes within its vast territory. This birding adventure is for those looking to explore new habitats and places as well as add new birds to their lists. We will visit several birding spots and a great diversity of habitats in the northeast of Argentina, driving from the city of Buenos Aires to the mighty Iguazú Falls, seeking out every major birding spot along the way.

Our journey begins in Buenos Aires, the capital of Argentina and the main gateway to this country. This is the heart of the Argentine pampas, a habitat that stands out among the most productive birding areas in Argentina. The most productive birding spot in the pampas is called Ceibas and we will surely spend time exploring it thoroughly.

After birding the pampas, we'll head to northeastern Argentina, where we'll spend time in Corrientes province exploring Esteros del Iberá, Argentina's largest wetland, and other habitats. This part of the country is the stronghold for several Birds with very restricted ranges in Argentina. Exploring the Iberá will be a combination of boat excursions and trail walks through different habitats, an experience worth trying for bird watchers.

Leaving Corrientes behind, we will continue our journey by land to the Province of Misiones, crossing the Campos, a restricted area of ​​savannas on gentle hills with patches of forest. The sheer diversity and sheer number of wetland Bird species are overwhelming in this area. This is the habitat where endangered Birds such Saffron-cowled Blackbird and gorgeous Streamer-tailed Tyrant live

Finally, we will conclude our trip exploring the Uruguaí Provincial Park and the mighty Iguazú Falls, covered in tropical jungle, in the Iguazú National Park, where, in addition to contemplating countless Birds, we will visit these beautiful and internationally known waterfalls of unparalleled beauty.
