Escape to Serene Nature and Exquisite Birdlife at La Lorenza Reserve

This excursion is a birdwatcher’s paradise, offering a bird manual and telescope to aid in our search for the most emblematic birds in the area. We’ll stroll through the forest and nearby paths, where we may spot some of the 300 species of birds that can be found in La Lorenza. The golden-crested woodpecker, robust woodpecker, band-tailed manakins, various species of tanagers and euphonias, the rough-billed hummingbird, and the red-ruffed fruit-crow with its scarlet chest are just a few of the species we may encounter.

With a bit of luck and patience (increased during the Argentinean winter, from June to August), we may also catch a glimpse of two species of toucans that are less well-known than the toco toucan but just as fascinating due to their unique coloring: the chestnut-eared aracari and the spot-billed toucanet, the latter of which is endemic to the Atlantic Forest.

Nature offers us a unique opportunity to share in its wonders, to observe and learn about the behavior, ecological value, and characteristics that make each species unique. Led by ornithological guides specialized in the Atlantic Forest, this excursion is suitable for both amateur and beginner bird watchers.

The visit culminates on our deck, where we can enjoy a panoramic view of the Paraná River while sipping on a refreshing drink and sampling a local appetizer. La Lorenza’s bird list is also available for those who wish to continue their birdwatching adventures.

Starting around 6 am, your ornithologist guide will meet you at your hotel with binoculars and a telescope in hand. Together, you will begin a walk through the jungle and nearby paths in search of the most emblematic birds in the area. La Lorenza is home to up to 300 species of birds (registered), including the golden-crested woodpecker, robust woodpecker, band-tailed manakin, and varieties of Black-breasted plovercrest. Especially noteworthy is the rough-billed hummingbird, a very territorial species that can always be seen in the same place. Other species to look out for include the red-ruffed fruit-crow with its scarlet chest, different species of tanagers and euphonias, woodcreepers, and of course the two species of surucua trogon and black-throated trogon.

With some luck and patience (especially during the Argentinean winter from June to August), it’s also possible to spot two species of toucans that are less famous or popular than the toco toucan but have fascinating coloration: the chesnut-eared aracari and the spot-billed toucanet. The latter is of great value as it’s endemic to the Atlantic Forest.

As you venture into nature, you’ll learn about the behavior of birds, their ecological value, and the characteristics that make them unique. This outing is suitable for amateurs and beginners in bird watching and photography. It’s led by ornithological guides specialized in the Atlantic Forest.

The visit culminates on our deck with a panoramic view of the Paraná River, where you can share drinks and something delicious to snack on. You’ll return to your hotel around 11 am.

Crisis managers who go the extra mile.

"Every derail was attended to promptly and cheerfully. We had an in-flight emergency needing a last minute change and Lucia and Ramiro were all over it. They turned what could have been a travel disaster due to airlines cancellations into a wonderful two day experience at Iguazu Falls. They are great! Thank you!

Iguazu Falls - last minute booking

"We had a last minute decision going to the Iguazu Falls enroute a visit to Rio. We flew from Canada and arrived São Paulo on 23rd Feb morning, and Foz do Iguazu at night time. During the time we were at São Paulo airport, we looked for Iguazu Falls tours the next day, coz we would leave for Rio on 25th Feb. What a blessing I found this website. Walter promptly arranged the tour for me at almost the closing of business hours. He followed up assuring the hotel pick up at 9am the next morning on 24th Feb. Joao was one of the best tour guides I had. With his guide, we saw the best parts of the Falls from both sides of Argentina and Brazil. While hiking the Argentina side trail, we saw monkeys, a poisonous snake, birds, butterflies catfish, lizards and many more. Joao explained to us how some of the endangered species were protected. Very interesting. Joao assisted us to go through customs. It was very smooth going from Brazil to Argentina and coming back. We were so much into taking photos we forgot about our lunch. We felt very sorry for Joao but he just kept going to all the best points so we could take our best pictures. Our apologies. When the trip was finished, Walter checked with us to make sure we were safely back to our hotel. I am very thankful to Walter and his team. Can't believe Mother Nature creating such a magnificent landscape, and we could see it without hassle last minute. Such a wonderful time! I would highly recommend Walter to everyone. Thanks again, Walter and Joao.

We were picked up from our hotel on…

"We were picked up from our hotel on time and taken to Buenos Aires airport and everything went smoothly. Our driver and tour guide for the day Alex was waiting for us and took us to start our adventure. The iguaza Falls exceed everyones expectations they are wonderous. Alex took us on the upper trail first,then the boat ride of a life time to go into the falls we got soaked and were so 😊happy and you can buy a video after for $15us Alex then took on lower trail which i personally thought were the best. All in all Alex's trip was fantastic knew his stuff and explained everything we wanted to know.. Brilliant trip would recommend to everyone.

Best Service for Seeing Iguazu Falls

"Can't imagine a better, more seamless trip experience to Iguazu Falls. Communication with Lucia through the entire process was excellent, and each and every aspect of the adventure was better than we could have imagined. Everything was perfectly aligned and delivered without a hitch. We were a bit nervous about our driver getting us to the airport on time from the cruise port. We were originally scheduled to disembark at 7am, but we actually got off at 6:15 and right there was our driver!! And every other transport was equally as excellent. We loved our private Falls guide, Elisangela, who went the distance to ensure we had a truly wonderful experience. We are so so glad we decided to do both sides, and to spend the night in Iguazu. The Falls are beyond comprehension, and no pictures do them justice. Loved trekking around the area where every bend brought new amazing vistas and sounds. Yes, Devil's Throat is closed and will be for awhile, but that in no way detracted from our experience. Stayed at the Grand Panorama Hotel. Very lovely place only 3-minute walk from the main area with shops, restaurants, etc. Very convenient for getting out and about. We also appreciated the options for additional things to do in the area. We selected the Argentinian Dining Experience and the Bird Park in Brazil. The dining experience is something not to be missed! We had so much fun with the other guests and the two instructors/chefs/mixologists. Best filet mignon ever eaten, and that's saying a lot because we are Michelin star foodies! It was a memorable evening that we will be talking about for a long time to come!! And we enjoyed our time seeing some of the many birds of South America. Great conservation facility where the birds are well-taken care of and safe. Everything about our trip was top-notch! Couldn't recommend a better group of people to work with.
