Straddling the border of Brazil and Argentina, Iguazú Falls is an enormous basalt staircase streaked with some 275 cascades, rising shear and gray from the humid subtropical rain forest to 82-metre cliffs arranged in an ever eroding arc of incredible waterfalls that span almost two miles. Deservedly considered one of the Seven Wonders of the World.
You can tour the Argentinean side, Brazilian side, or both sides and take other sightseeing tours to nearby attractions like the San Ignacio Mission or the Itaipu Dam on the Brazil-Paraguay border. We can leave you to your own devices, or we can organise a guide - it's your call. Though you only need three hours to explore the walkways and viewpoints, you could and should easily spend a full day at the Falls. The best time to take photographs is in the morning, and we'd suggest the views from the Brazilian side. The excellent Argentine Visitor Centre provides interesting information about the falls, local flora and fauna is also well worthwhile visiting.
Scenic trails also explore the surrounding rainforest, with plenty of opportunities to see the wildlife and plant life, including parrots, toucans, butterflies and orchids. We can organise naturalist guides to show you some of the hidden trails which take you down to the numerous small islands and picturesque deep blue bays.
For those seeking something extra special how about a taking a helicopter ride over the falls of the most impressive sights? Otherwise a boat trip offers a unique and dramatic spectacle that allows you to feel sheer force of nature and energy of the falls, as you are immersed in spray and overwhelmed by the thundering noise.
