Irupe Lodge is located in the heart of the Ibera Wetlands Nature Reserve near a town called Carlos Pelligrini. The nearest airport is Posadas which is located around 240 kilometres from the Lodge. The road from Posadas is half tarmac and half unsealed so it takes longer to drive there. Transfers can be arranged, or guests can choose to hire a car and drive, however a 4x4 is recomended, particularly if it has recently rained.
For those that would like to cut down on the driving or experience the area by air, there is the option to fly to the Lodge by private aircraft from either Posadas or Iguazu Falls. This scenic flight flies over some dramatic scenery and is a great experience. Please enquire with your Latin Routes Travel Specialist for further details.
