Cruising up to Iguazu Falls Devil's Throat Canyon at Iguazu Falls on Argentina trip Looking up Devil's Canyon of Iguazu Falls on Argentina trips Iguazu Falls Iguazu Falls on Argentina tour

Day 1 Arrive Puerto Iguazu

This morning we fly from Buenos Aires to Iguazu. Upon arrival settle into your hotel and explore your surroundings.

Please note - we can arrange additional excursions this day depending on your arrival time. One option we recommend is a four hour jeep safari in the forest with zipline canopy tour and waterfall rappel.

Day 2 Discover the Falls

Today set out for our first glimpse of the falls by exploring the Argentinean side of Iguazu Falls and watch the cascading water from various angles. Begin the day by boarding a small train to Devil's Throat Station, where there's a suspended walkway with spectacular views.

Later explore the two walking circuits, beginning with the upper walk. This is about a quarter-mile long and takes approximately 45 minutes. From here you can see the Two Sisters, Bosseti, Adam and Eve, Bernabe Mendez, Mbiguá and San Martín Falls. The lower circuit has been described as the "most beautiful thousand meter walk in the world." Heading in a clockwise direction you get a very different perspective of the falls; watch out when you get to the middle of the walkway - you might get wet!!

This afternoon we make our way through the jungle in a rugged 4x4 vehicle, traveling the limited-access Yacaratia Trail to nearby Puerto Macuco. Here we leave the truck behind for an inflatable speedboat, in which we'll navigate four miles (7 kms) along the lower Iguazu River. Bring your swimsuit and be prepared to get wet in the refreshingly cool spray from the falls! Approaching the picturesque falls in Devil's Throat Canyon, we'll brave a mile of rapids before finishing our adventure surrounding San Martin Island. Return with zodiacs to Macuco port and back to the hotel.

Day 3 Brazil Side Touring

  • 1 Breakfast
Set out from your hotel today to cross over to the Brazil side of the Falls. Set out on a half day guided tour of the falls. From the Brazilian National Park you will enjoy a panoramic view of the falls and set out on an easy walk finishing in the canyon of the Devil’s throat. If your flight leaves later in the day, opt to take an excursion to Macuco Falls or enjoy a helicopter flightseeing tour! Transfer to the airport to continue your travels in Argentina or Brazil.
