Description of Argentina wildlife tour
This trip can be tailor made throughout the year to suit your requirements
As the pioneers of responsible tourism, we've screened this (and every) vacation so that you can travel knowing it will help support the places and people that you visit, and the planet. Read how below.
PlanetAs with all of our luxury vacations, this itinerary has been crafted to ensure that it positively effects the local communities and environments visited.
This itinerary includes trips to some of Argentina's protected areas of natural beauty, including the stunning Iguazú Falls area. By visiting these sites (all entrance fees are included in your luxury tour), you are supporting the preservation and conservation of these areas, and indicating to authorities that tourists are interested in protecting Argentina's incredible natural environments.
Whilst exploring Argentina's areas of natural beauty, please ensure that you don’t leave any litter – everything you carry in, you must carry out. Aside from the environmental damage, litter can be harmful to the wildlife.
We also make a special effort to recommend accommodation providers which have responsible and sustainable initiatives. For example, at El Pedral Lodge at Punta Ninfas, the 220 V power is generated by wind energy. Estancia Puerto Valle has a tree nursery produces more than four million seedlings of eucalyptus, Grevillea, kiri and yerba mate per year. These specimens are used for forestry plantation under FSC (Forest Stewardship Council) standards, which require adherence to the highest social and environmental practices.
PeopleAll the local guides referred to in this itinerary are paid a fair wage. We believe that using local guides is important, as it helps generate local incomes and creates jobs, plus it offers a more authentic travel experience.
We recommend independent local hotels, lodges, guesthouses and campsites, rather than international chain hotels, which helps support local communities and allows you to experience true Argentine hospitality. For example, this Argentina wildlife vacation includes a stay at Puerto Valle in the old traditional estancia that has been fully refurbished and re-born as a modern, luxury lodge. The building was first established in 1868, when Italian sailor Bernadino Valle bought the land from the provincial government to develop his cattle-raising and merchandise transportation business. Today, the estate of the old estancia engages in sustainable production, more precisely, forestry and cattle-raising activities.
We believe getting to know the destination and the people who live there means that you will have a more authentic and meaningful travel experience.
