Delta del Tigre in Buenos Aires, where the river is the protagonist
Catamaran rides, kayak trips and unforgettable sunsets. From Vicente López to San Nicolás, a range of tranquility and nature unfolds to enjoy throughout the year.
The rays of the sun make their way through dense vegetation and the soundtrack is that of the river crashing against the shore. That natural mantra calms and welcomes travelers. It’s that easy to fall flat in the face of the Delta.
Buenos Aires calls to live a unique landscape in El Tigre. By means of a kayak trip or simply taking a mate to the side of the river, each one tries to find his way to enjoy the contact with nature, between adventure and contemplation, always ready to discover and to be astonished.
A catamaran ride with a couple or family opens the panorama: the high-rise buildings of the islands with their colorful facades make you want to go down to know the life of the inhabitants and it is also an option to disconnect from everything. It seems that time passes in another way; The rest is different and little by little it expands in an endless number of streams. The native flora and fauna enrich the surroundings and a walk among the labyrinths of vegetation helps travelers to discover the names of houses carved in wood, chairs perched on thresholds and other charming features of Delta culture. Not for nothing the islands of San Fernando, National Capital of Nautical, are biosphere reserve. Along the Parana River, there are deer from the marshes to capybaras, river lobes, wildcats, coypus and mountain turkeys, and there are sites of particular ecological interest, such as the remains of the white mountain and a forest of ceibos in recovery.
Meanwhile, in Tigre stands the classic walk through the Puerto de Frutos to buy wicker crafts, or stop at a restaurant to try homemade food. In Campana, the Otamendi Nature Reserve, with riverside jungles of the Parana de las Palmas, shines with its ravines with felling forests, fauna and Pampas grasslands.
San Isidro continues with the explosion of nature in the Ribera Norte municipal reserve and, moreover, adds history. Villa Ocampo, the home of the writer Victoria Ocampo, is a charming mansion that opens its doors with guided visits among books and architectural treasures, as well as a large park and an elegant restaurant.
The Estrella Federal Duck Field in Ramallo, Martín García Island with its history and tranquility and the orange and blueberry plantations of San Pedro surprise visitors as much as participate in the beautiful National Flower Festival in Escobar or stay for a few Days in an island hut, in inns, inns and spas. Throughout the year the Delta overflows with colors and reaches its peak of splendor in autumn and spring. Nests in Paraguayan hammocks, a reading time under a tree and amazing sunsets mark the passage of hours until night falls like a cloak.
Buenos Aires countryside, rest and gaucho tradition
A barbecue, a walk under the starry sky. All this is conjugated in the fields of Buenos Aires, where the magic of the pampa shines and the gauchos share their history.
The crickets sing, but inside the grocery store is the voice of the countrymen, who laugh, talk and are always willing to share their stories and stories. The oral narration shines in the towns of the province of Buenos Aires and there is no tranquera that stops it. This keeps the tradition alive, which in the Pampa immensity welcomes the visitors to show them their secrets.

Spending the day or staying at a ranch, one of more than 300 stays in the area, a country house or a rural accommodation is part of the experience. On horseback, in sulky, by bicycle or on foot, a surprising stroll with the most authentic gauchesque life on a weekend getaway. A historic building, a cistern or a mill offers a postcard that looks like a painting by Molina Campos, and there is always someone willing to invite a bitter mate.
From early, as a couple, with friends or with the family, the most diverse activities begin to welcome travelers. We invite you to learn about the old tillage and crops, beekeeping, planting soybean, corn, wheat and sunflower, or dairy and farm tasks. The magic continues at any lunch in an old warehouse or a grocery store. After the action, the visitors surrender without guilt before the barbecues and the homemade stews. At the time of the siesta, the hundred-year-old treetops offer their shade and every detail is followed by the quiet rhythm of the villages which invites to disconnect and peace, but also to great fun if it forms part of a Popular party, as the Dulce de Leche every November in Cañuelas, a horseman or dressage.
At dawn, the colors tint the horizon, the animals awaken and the dew makes the green of the grass or the golden wheat look splendorous. The aroma of the wet soil is fused with that of freshly baked bread and a new day begins. And at night, the last embers of the grill are extinguished to give way to the fireflies and stars. That is when the guitarreadas appear under an extraordinary sky.
