Day 1 Arrive Foz do Iguacu, Brazil

This morning fly to Foz do Iguacu. Begin your tour with a visit to the panoramic Brazil side of the national park. View the impressive Devil's Throat and 3 Musketeer Falls among others as you walk along platforms that overlook the falls! With extra time, take an optional excursion to Macuco Falls or enjoy a helicopter flightseeing tour! Return to your hotel and relax for the evening.

Day 2 Discover the Falls

Today set out 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 make your way through the jungle in a rugged 4x4 vehicle, traveling the limited-access Yacaratia Trail to nearby Puerto Macuco. Here leave the truck behind for an inflatable speedboat, in which you'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, brave a mile of rapids before finishing your adventure surrounding San Martin Island. Return with zodiacs to Macuco port and back to the hotel in Brazil.

Day 3 Return to Rio de Janeiro or Buenos Aires

Spend the morning exploring independently, and transfer back to the airport for your afternoon flight to Rio de Janeiro or Buenos Aires and explore from there.

Beyond expectations! Then again we weren't sure what to expect. Lovely stay at the lodge, met other like-minded travelers (many had their trips planned by Adventure Life) and the owner was a gracious hostess. It felt like you were one happy family, visiting with a favorite aunt.
