The Iberá Lake and marshlands are among the last natural paradises on earth. Visitors of Irupe Lodge can get face to face with caimans, capybaras, swamp deer, pampas deer, howler monkeys, giant otters, anacondas, greater rheas and hundreds of birds. The wetlands cover over 13,000 km² of marsh with over 60 lakes. The nature reserve, founded in the year 1983, is located 800 kilometres north of Buenos Aires.
Due to its mild climate and isolation, the marsh is an area where wild animals are still the stars. Within Argentina and South America, the Iberá Wetlands are the Ornithologist’s Mecca. Over 350 species of birds live in this virgin landscape and most of them can be spotted easily.
Irupé Lodge offers 8 rooms and a family suite. All the rooms provide a unique view to the Iberá Lake. They surprise with large spaces and a combination of modern – rustic architecture. There is a swimming pool nicely fitted into nature at 15m from the lake shore. You will be able to watch numerous birds also enjoying water, fruits and flowers of our park of 15.000 square meters. A wooden bridge connects the main house with the lake Iberá where the capybara families play around and the alligators have their sunbath. This is the place where – day and night – the boat safaris start.
