Argentinian Mesopotamia. Nature, jungle and wetlands

Argentina. Corrientes & Misiones

  • 12 Aug 2021 - 19 Aug 2021
  • 11 Aug 2022 - 18 Aug 2022
August is the right month to get into the dirty, red and muddy roads of the forest of Misiones province with our motorcycles. The fresh and less rainy weather will allow us to enjoy a tour where the trails are invaded by the fertile vegetation of the Alto Parana Atlantic Forest.

If we are lucky, we may see some of the big mammals just crossing the roads: the Aguara-Guazú, Capibara, Jaguar, Tapir or the Giant Anteater. Amazing reptiles, caiman yacare, big lizards, rattlesnake or yararas may be more elusive. However, some birds, such as the magnificent harpy eagle, the toucans and parrots, or small mammals, like coaties or monkeys, will join our noise and fun.

At dawn, thousands of diverse wetland birds will awake us with their singing. Local gastronomy that melts the guarani culture with several modern migratory flows will delight us with smoked and sweet flavors, such as wild meats, caiman and capibara, and tropical fruits for dessert.  Life in these places, being tropical areas, develop in the open air and will be very much enjoyable to us.

The tour starts in the very heart of the Ibera Wetlands, a 6,5 thousand sq miles  biodiversity jewel in the middle of the charming province of Corrientes. Bit by bit we will get into the forest in Misiones, a mandatory stop in the Mocona Falls and Bernardo de Irigoyen city, with its gaúcha (brazilian) influence. The majesty of the Iguazú Falls is the goal we want to achieve. From there, we'll come back to the south, not without first visiting the Jesuitic Ruins in San Ignacio. We'll finish our tour on the warm shores of a lake formed by the huge Yacireta Dam.

** COVID PANDEMIC: This tour is subject to the possibility of full internal tourism in Argentina. In case there are no flights, but the starting point can be accessed by land, you will be informed in a timely manner. If it is not possible on the proposed date, it will be rescheduled.
