How to get there and move around

There are daily flights and frequent bus services to Buenos Aires City, Rosario, Santa Fe and Paraná.

 

A wide network of asphalt routes starts in those cities and allows you to connect different destinations in one single journey, either by car or bus.

 

Two bridges and a subfluvial tunnel cross the Paraná River and are an attraction in themselves. Zárate-Brazo Largo Bridge connects the provinces of Buenos Aires and Entre Ríos, while Rosario-Victoria Bridge and Santa Fe-Paraná Tunnel connect the provinces of Santa Fe and Entre Ríos.

 

The access to some attractions is reached through gravel roads, which can become impassable when it rains. Other attractions can only be reached by river transportation.

 

Where to stay and eat

The big cities in this route have good accommodation offering, as well as camping sites, cottages and lodges to enjoy nature in remote places that can only be reached by boat.

 

When to go

You can visit this area all year round, although the best time to enjoy the river and the various attractions is between October and March.

 

It tends to rain more frequently between November and March. Always take a raincoat with you, and do not forget to bring a coat in autumn and winter.

Remember

Given the current health context, it is recommended to find out in advance the entry requirements of the province you are visiting. Some attractions, national parks and reserves may have capacity limits and require prior reservation.

 

If you travel by car, always respect speed limits. If the roads are not paved, find out if you can circulate with your vehicle: some roads are only suitable for off-road vehicles and many areas can be closed due to flooded rivers or streams.

 

Put on mosquito repellent and, if you go hiking, wear trousers and a long-sleeve shirt.


Boat transport services tend to have low frequencies. Find out the schedule before planning your visit.
