Arriving in Argentina you will be met in arrivals in Corrientes by your pilot who will bring you by light aircraft across the stunning landscape of Esteros del Iberá, landing on a grass runway next to the Estancia.
The Esteros del Iberá are one of Argentina’s hidden secrets, a vast swathe of wetlands teeming with abundant animal life. This estancia, originally built in the 18th Century, is part of a conservation and protection project with a resident biologist monitoring the area. The vast estate is allowed to grow wild save the immaculate gardens immediately surrounding the estancia. Without question this is perfect Honeymoon territory being so remote and is the complete opposite of a standard beach Honeymoon – here you are very far off track and in the wonderful wilderness.
The refurbishment of the estancia has been done with a remarkable attention to detail incorporating beautiful antiques and original prints and paintings. The excellent meals of hearty Argentine country food with a contemporary edge are prepared with fresh organic produce from the estancia’s large garden and are simply delicious.
Activities here depend on the Honeymoon couple’s likes and interests but can include trips to the local lagoon (which you navigate by speedboat, stopping for a romantic barbecue at sunset), light aircraft flights across the wetlands and trips across the savannah with an Argentine gaucho on one of the 12 beautiful Criollo horses. The light aircraft remains at the Estancia during your stay and is available for further flight to another two Estancias in this area.
After four days spent on safari at the estancia it’s time to leave and head to the Iguacu falls. Made up of some 275 separate falls that cascade over a precipice 3km wide Foz do Iguacu is, without question, one of the world‘s great natural wonders. Located on the border of Brazil, Paraguay and Argentina, their beauty and sheer magnificence really are indescribable. Our guide Wilson will arrive to give you an on-foot tour of the Argentinean side before you board a power-boat to get up close to the falls to fully experience this amazing phenomenon. Your luxury hotel is the only hotel actually based within the national park of the falls, a charming hacienda style lodge set amongst tranquil gardens.
