Highlights

Horseback Swimming in the Wetlands

Discover why the land of the gaucho is a superb place for an Argentina horse riding holiday. Ride across the country’s wild wetlands and swim across rivers with your horse. Spot an abundance of animals, from caiman to capybara. Fly over the endless expanse of channels and lagoons, and explore waterways by boat. On this Argentina horseback riding holiday, you also stay at a restored old estancia that’s now a luxurious lodge dedicated to conservation.

Concepcion

Ibera is the second-largest wetland in the world. Yet few people know it exists, and even fewer explore this maze of lagoons, channels and marshes on horseback. Concepcion, on the edge of the wetlands, is a good jumping-off point for an equine adventure. Explore this time-warp town, with its streets of sand, craft workshops and wooden houses.

Paraje Carambola - Nupuy

Time to hop in the saddle. From the village of Paraje Carambola, trot out into Ibera's green vastness. Naturally, there are streams to cross: while your saddlebags are paddled over by canoe, you can ride across bareback. Tuck into a picnic lunch to fuel the rest of the ride through reedbeds, woodland and ranches to reach Nupuy. Here, bed down like a gaucho in a rustic house by the river.

Nupuy - Paraje Carambola

The return ride to Paraje Carambola reveals more of the wetlands’ verdant expanse. While you’re splashing through the shallows and galloping through the long grasses, keep an eye out for the wilder locals such as grazing capybara (the world's largest rodent) and bright-plumed birds. The modern world feels a long way away here.

Santa Rosa or Rincon del Socorro

You could bid farewell to Ibera after three nights, or you could stay awhile. Choose a five-night trip and head to Estancia Rincon del Socorro on the edge of the nature reserve. The best way to get there is by private turbo-prop plane. Settle in with a wander around the gardens and lounge by the pool. Then take a late-afternoon drive with an expert guide to look for wildlife..

Rincon del Socorro

Having explored the wetlands by horse, plane and 4WD, you can now take a boat. There's nothing like drifting across Ibera lagoon, scanning for croc-like caiman, marsh deer, capybara and huge jabiru stork. The skies might be full of swooping birds, and the treetops ringing with the shrieks of howler monkeys.
