Overview
Replace the bustle of Buenos Aires with the green countryside of the Tigre Delta! A popular weekend getaway for Buenos Aires locals, the delta offers lush scenery, a relaxing atmosphere, a boat and train ride and a chance to see another way of Argentine life. You can choose between a full-day and half-day tour, both of which include a cruise on the delta.

  • Magnificent views of the Tigre Delta from the water
  • Choice of different itineraries and departure times 
  • Travel by boat, coach, or train depending on your preferences

What to Expect
Full-day tour Meet your guide in central Buenos Aires and travel to Tigre by boat, sailing through Costanera Sur Ecological Reserve with views of Buenos Aires. Wind along the narrow canals of Tigre Delta, passing yacht clubs, uninhabited islands, and stilt houses. In Tigre, transfer by bus to Puerto de Frutos port. After lunch (own expense), explore the markets, admire the views along Paseo Victoria, or visit a museum (own expense). Return to Buenos Aires by train. Half-day tour The tour begins with a morning or afternoon pick-up (depending on your chosen departure time) from your Buenos Aires hotel. Traveling aboard an air-conditioned coach, drive along Rio de la Plata, stopping to visit the historic town of San Isidro. Continue to Tigre and cruise around Tigre Delta. Admire the lush scenery and natural islands from your boat, and pass beautiful waterfront villas, stilt houses, and colorful floating markets. Return to Buenos Aires by coach.

I truly love "Tigre". The ships coming and going all the time. I really like to visit "mercado de pulgas" on weekends too. I was there on may in 2017 and I wish to come back one of this days.
