An overnight bus ride from Buenos Aires can bring you to one of the most exciting nature destinations we visited throughout our trip: the Iberá Wetlands in northern Argentina. This is one of the largest wetland systems in the world and the country's largest fresh water resource. Home to caymans, capybaras, rheas, marsh deer and endemic bird species, Iberá is a charming and beautiful place where time slows down. Nature-based tourism has started to revive the cultural life of the surrounding communities, as the region has entered the radars of conservationists from all over the world thanks to another remarkable Tompkins Conservation project led by their local organization, the Conservation Land Trust (CLT) Argentina. Starting in the late 90s, Doug and Kris Tompkins got involved in purchasing and restoring lands surrounding the Iberá provincial park and reserve. Now, their Argentinean organization, CLT, has begun the process of donating these lands to the country to form a national park which, together with the already protected areas will form one of the largest parklands in Argentina. And that’s not all.
