This comprehensive itinerary covers all of northern Argentina’s main biomes, from the deserts and cloud forests of the Andes, through the dry and humid Chaco regions, to the rain forests of Iguazú. The scenery throughout these trips is one of the highlights, with deep and colorful gorges, open grasslands and magnificent waterfalls. This tour provides thorough coverage of the country’s endemics, including Tucuman Mountain-Finch, Moreno’s Ground- Dove, Steinbach’s Canastero, Buff-breasted Earthcreeper,White-throated Cacholote, White-browed Tapaculo and the charismatic Sandy Gallito.

Flocks of Burrowing Parrots and Mitred Parakeets are common in the mountains. Other Andean specialties include Rufous-throated Dipper, Alder Amazon, Red-faced Guan, Wedge-tailed Hillstar, Zimmer’s Tapaculo, Andean and James’ Flamingo. From the Andes we enter the Chaco lowlands by passing through dry forests and thorn-scrub. As we progress eastwards the habitat becomes more humid. The dry habitats are home to Chaco Chachalaca, Black-legged Seriema, Striped-backed Antbird, Many-colored Chaco-Finch and hopefully the shy Quebracho Crested-Tinamou could be spotted. The greener vegetation of the humid Chaco can produce other sightings such as Cream-backed Woodpecker, Plush-crested and Purplish jays, Green-backed Becard and Great Rufous Woodcreeper among others. Once in the Atlantic Forest of Misiones, we look for more toucans, antbirds and tanagers of various species, adding color to this spectacular journey which has the splendid Iguazú falls as a grand finale.
