Northwest Argentina: Andes, Yungas & Monte Desert

Tour Overview:

From the lush yungas forest with its distinctive avifauna, to the dramatic cactus-studded Andean deserts, to the high altiplano with its flamingo-studded lakes, this tour offers a fascinating variety of habitats and birds. There is a huge number of different species for birders who have only visited the north Andean countries, with evocative names like earthcreepers, brushrunners, cachalotes, and gallitos. We cover a lot of ground on this tour, but it is quite comfortable thanks to Argentina’s good infrastructure and friendly people. Wine aficionados will enjoy sampling the great local vintages during our evening meals. A very different, (and relaxed pace) extension to the largest waterfalls in the world, Iguazu, in northeastern Argentina, ensures not only that this incredible natural wonder will be seen from a number of angles, but a healthy number of Atlantic Forest birds will be added to the list too.
