Our Tigre and Paraná Delta tours are unique. The tours are luxury packages individually tailored according to taste and budget. We find that most people miss the natural beauty of the Parana Delta because most tours simply walk the riverside promenade or operate by water taxi with no stops to explore the fauna and flora rich delta islands.
Our Tigre and Paraná Delta tour suggestion:
Luxury tours set off early in a private car or SUV with your host. The drive north takes you through the upper class neighborhoods to enjoy Buenos Aires sights such as San Isidro’s magnificent gothic cathedral and the many colonial mansions on route.
On arrival to Tigre, we visit the recently restored Tigre Hotel, which transports you back in time to the roaring 20’s for a breakfast.
After breakfast, we take a riverside walk of Tigre; you will marvel the English-style rowing clubs, countless marinas, and elegant mansions of the “Belle Époque”, as well as upscale lodges, restaurants and teahouses.
We then take our river expedition of the Paraná Delta aboard a vintage mahogany long boat. The Paraná Delta is un-spoilt labyrinth of waterways filled wildlife and islands. We stop for lunch and a lazy afternoon at wonderful Italian style Estancia on the monumental Parana de la Palmas to b-b-q “the gaucho way” and drink good Malbec wine.
After lunch, you may go canoeing, horse riding, trekking or simply swing in a hammock by the waterside to absorb the stunning natural beauty of the Paraná River.
We head back to the port around 5pm to 6pm and then take a leisurely drive to Buenos Aires City. It is possible to arrange a boat to take you back to the city, arriving at Puerto Madero early evening. We needsuch instruction at least 14 days in advance.
You may also stay the night at the rustic Italian style Tigre estanicia where you lunch. Please make this request before travel to Buenos Aires to avoid disappointment.

Tigre is a wonderfully leafy, waterside, weekend retreat that lies on the Paraná Delta, bordered to the north by an important branch of the Paraná River, the Paraná de las Palmas River, and to the east by the Río de la Plata. The Luján River, flowing southeast into the Río de la Plata divides this region, creating a maze of waterways and islands given over to first-class tourism, waterside living, sports and agriculture. These navigable waterways connect to the major rivers of the region making Tigre an attractive centre for exploring, yachting, rowing, and fishing.
