We offer daily tours by prior reserve.
We depart from the Puerto Iguazú hotels very early in the morning and visit different areas and environments within the Iguazú National Park, endeavouring to find and observe the greatest diversity of bird species possible.
The time spent birdwatching on these regular excursions is of four hours, while the whole outing will last up to an approximate total of five hours. The maximum number of participants is eight, the minimum two.
Our guide, Daniel Somay, has an excellent command of technical birdwatching English, withover fifteen years experience in the region. His equipment includes a library of over four-hundred bird calls and songs for playback. He is licensed to access and enter the Iguazú National Park with his groups, outside normal times.
Birding guide, transportation, mineral water, snack are included.
This is a short basic program but note that the province of Misiones has the greatest diversity of birds in Argentina. If you would like to discover secretive or difficult birds maybe you must spend more time in the area.
