Untouched scenery, remote wetlands and endemic species

Welcome to Ibera Wetlands

Found to the south of Iguazu Falls, this isolated region provides a fantastic off-the-beaten-track destination in Argentina for wildlife lovers, thanks to its protected and pristine status–having been cut off from mankind over the millennia by its own encircling, impenetrable marshlands. As a result, thousands of plant, bird, animal and insect species have been able to thrive here, making for one of the most picturesque and rewarding wildlife experiences in Argentina.
