Our tour of north east Argentina focusses predominantly on the province of Misiones. Here we will search the last remnants of San Pedro’s native Araucaria forest and visit one of the most spectacular natural wonders of the world, the gargantuan Cataratas del Iguazú (Iguazú Falls)! We conclude our tour with some remarkable wetland birding on the Esteros del Iberá, one of the largest marshland ecosystems in the country. Amongst the many fine birds we will be seeking are such sought-after and localised species as Strange-tailed Tyrant, Araucaria Tit-Spinetail, Black-fronted Piping Guan and Helmeted Woodpecker.
