GUIDED WALK THROUGH THE FOREST + CULTURA L EXPERIENCE + HEAVY APPETIZER
Once we arrive at La Lorenza, we will hike a forest trail that is rich in abundant plant and bird species, many of which are endemic to the ecoregion. Throughout this interpretive walk, you will observe some natural processes that shape this forest in a dynamic and unique way.
A typical house is the perfect place to be introduced to the local culture and our national infusion: Mate. In front of a small wood fire and using our own hands, we will prepare this popular beverage from scratch with the plant. While sipping Mate, a local farmer will share its history, including who discovered this sacred plant, the social codes that govern this tradition, and why it is so important for Argentines.
The visit will end on our private deck overlooking the magnificent Paraná River, where we will offer a local appetizer at this privileged spot.

Best experience at Iguazu Falls
"We were a group of 6 and can only recomend the agency! We were picked from Brazilian airport, visited the Brazilian side of the falls, then on the next day moved to Argentinian side and left from the Argentinian airport. The tour guide Damu was amazing! He is kind, provides valuable tips, organized the two days so we can see everything. We didn't wait anywhere! We crossed the border from Brazil to Argentina for 5 minutes maximum and Damu prepared the papers in advance. We asked for changes of the agreed schedule due to the weather and all was fine with no extra charge. The communication was perfect, Damo was on time all days and with great attention to details- we had time for pictures, for shopping, organization was perfect!Thank you, you made one time of experience for all of us!

We absolutely loved the pass
""We absolutely loved the pass. It took all the stress out of the transfers as we didn’t know how it would work crossing the border. The guide took charge and made it very straightforward. Especially as very few people speak English. The tours were extremely well planned, the guide, Emanuel was friendly, enthusiastic, funny and knowledgeable. His English was excellent and we would recommend him to anyone. There were no issues and we were very happy with everything. Cheers Susan."
