Argentina Wildlife: Tropical wetlands and Patagonia

16 days from £5,669pp
 

Private Journey

 

This is a wildlife holiday with a difference. Argentina is famous for its elegant capital, and for wine, beef, glaciers and football, but this vast territory with its myriad of landscapes is also home to a huge variety of observable wildlife. From the exotic birds of the sub-tropical rainforest in the north to the whales, penguins and sea-elephants of Patagonia, there is wild fauna to be spotted in diverse natural environments.

Start off in Buenos Aires, one of the continent's most enchanting cities. Move on to Iguazú, where the rainforest around the waterfalls is populated by a plethora of wildlife including coati, opossums and deer. It’s a dramatic change of scene when you arrive in Patagonia, a wilderness of windswept grasslands, craggy cliffs and Atlantic beaches, where penguins congregate in their thousands to breed. In season, whales can be spotted spouting and frolicking.
