FIVE HOURS

Delta

Delta



Tigre neighbourhood is situated in the unique delta formed by the confluence of the Paraná and the Uruguay rivers, just 30 km from Buenos Aires. On our way there, passing by the northern districts of the city, we will be able to see the Rio de la Plata (the widest in the world) and, from a picturesque pier where local fishers gather daily, appreciate a nice view of Buenos Aires to the right, and of the delta islands to the left: a strategic spot from where to take memorable pictures. We will also make a stop in famous San Isidro, a former colonial town where the wealthiest porteños had their weekend homes in the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries. In Tigre, not far from San Isidro, adventure will start. For two hours and a half, we will be paddling in stable Canadian canoes along narrow channels of lush vegetation, and on the way, we will have a snack in a wooden house built on piles, characteristic of the area. Going back to town, we will drive along the Pan American Route, famous road that crosses the entire continent, from Alaska to Tierra del Fuego.
