When it comes to the outdoors, Iberville is the “natural” choice. From boating to birding and golfing to paddling, unique recreational opportunities are at every bend.
Iberville serves as a gateway to the Atchafalaya Basin, an 800,000 acre swamp often referred to as the “South’s last wilderness” and home to more than 85 species of fish, 200 species of birds, alligators, black bear and other wildlife. The waterways tell much about our Parish’s history and lifestyle and provide a natural playground to outdoor enthusiasts who enjoy fishing, boating, birding or paddling.
Join Last Wilderness Tours for an eco-tourism trek to experience the wonders of the Atchafalaya up close and personal. If you prefer putting to paddling, then tee up at The Island, an award-winning 18-hole course that challenges even the most avid golfers.
