Kayaking and trekking at Ibera Wetlands

Knowing and enjoying Ibera Wetlands. And could it be a better way to do it, other than, rowing? Get on board of this Kayaking and Trekking at Ibera Wetlands and experience the Northeast region of Argentina.

The Iberá Lake and marshlands are one of the last natural paradises on earth. The wetlands covers over 13,000 km² of marsh with more than 60 lakes. The nature reserve, founded in the year 1983, is located 800 kilometres north of Buenos Aires.

Owing to its mild climate and isolation, the marsh is an area where wild animals are still the stars. Within Argentina and South America, the Iberá Wetlands are the Ornithologist’s Mecca. Over 350 species of birds live in this virgin landscape and most of them can be easily spotted.

We were picked up at our hotel. Driving through the forest we reach the starting point of this adventure by the coast of The Ibera Lake and marshland. After a short briefing about the activity and safety tips the journey takes us, for two and a half hours in a kayak with capacity for three travelers. Small grous are great so everybody gets to know each other. The guide leads the excursion in a single kayak. Along the way we can watch birds, capybaras, swamp deers, water plants. The animals in their own habitat is something not to be missed.

The variety of Flora is also a highlight on this tour. Aquatic Plants, reeds, bulrushes, rushes, palms and small islands forming hygrophil forests.
