Walks & Treks
To experience the full magic of the Iguassu Falls, walking tours of both the Brazilian and Argentinean side are a must.
The Brazilian side gives the advantage of wide, expansive panoramic vistas, showcasing the beauty of this natural phenomenon. For the more adventurous, tours on the Argentinean side allow you to walk along the base of several falls, and even across the top of some of the falls.
Walkers should take a rain coat and waterproof camera protection as the mist from the falls will certainly make you much more than damp!
It is rare to experience a real tropical wilderness. Yet at the Iguassu National Park the kilometers of walkways and trails will allow you intimate contact with one of the world's most beautiful rainforests.
As you walk through the lush vegetation, with the roar of the waterfalls in the background, colourful birds flit through the trees, and exotic blooms of orchids and wildflowers adorn the rainforest floor.
Experience can take many forms in the Iguassu National Park. Whether you choose to take a relaxing and educational walking tour through the park with one of the park guides or a Hotel biologist, or prefer something more energetic like a rafting trip on the Iguassu River or even an ariel view of the spectacular waterfalls either on the end of a rope or from the comfort of a helicopter Iguassu Experiences, in-house specialists can help.
The trip might have been the absolute best of our lifetime (thus far). We particularly want to commend our guide Peter in the Guilin area-he was so incredibly attentive, energetic, enthusiastic-and absolutely dedicated to ensuring that our meals were 100% vegetarian.
