MYSTICAL NIGHTS IN THE IBERÁ WETLANDS
A different view of the Iberá's natural beauty
On this tour into the wetlands, you will get to know a completely different face of the Iberá’s natural beauty and wilderness.
Of course, as on any other tour, there’s wildlife at every step you take. But this time, while looking for the wild protagonists of this ecosystem the sun will slowly set and paint your surroundings in orange, yellow, red and pink colors. The intense light sometimes even plays with your senses making it impossible to distinguish between the real landscape and its reflection on Iberá’s water surface.
At this time, flocks of birds are on their way to their favorite night spots and the caimans – after many hours of heating their body in the sun – start hunting fish or fighting their territories.
While the stars and moonlight slowly take over the sky, you meet your horses and the gauchos. They will bring you to a romantic picnic spot where you will enjoy a delicious dinner next to the fire, far off civilization. Renewed, you will continue your horseback ride along the wetlands and jungles accompanied by the frogs and cicadas singing and the last whistles of a late bird. There’s absolutely no light pollution; you can perfectly see the Milky Way as you have never seen it before and the Southern Cross will lead your way. While the moon is shining and reflecting the lagoon, your horse brings you safely at a comfortable pace to the estancia. From there, you can observe on foot and equipped with powerful torches the small night active animals such as armadillos, skunks, foxes, vizcachas, wash bears and owls.
Later, a short 4WD transfer brings you back to Irupé Lodge.
The ideal starting point for excursions into the Iberá marshlands is the village of Colonia Carlos Pellegrini. At the entrance of the village that counts 500 inhabitants, you can easily find Irupé Lodge – named after a rare aquatic plant of the wetlands. The panoramic view of our park and the lake right out front, crowded with colourful birds, invites you to explore Argentina’s nature. The Lodge construction on poles ensures a natural and cosy atmosphere for unforgettably relaxing days. Moreover, the country-style designed and original rooms will help to make your holidays peaceful and exclusive.Let’s discover the Iberá Wetlands and Iguazú Falls with Irupé Lodge & Tours.
