Iguazu Falls, where over 275 distinct cascades tumble through lush subtropical forest, is one of the most awe-inspiring sights in South America. The falls straddle the border between Argentina ("Iguazu" in Spanish) and Brazil ("Iguaçu" in Portuguese), and you can explore both sides to get different perspectives of this natural marvel during this Iguazu Falls tour. Add Iguazu Falls to any Brazil and Argentina tour.

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 (minimum age requirement of 12 years). 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.

Kate was great to work with in the planning stage. She was prompt, helpful, and efficient. Our tour guide, Edwin, was knowledgeable and passionate. We were very happy to have traveled with Adventure Life, it made the trip easy and a true pleasure. We could concentrate on enjoying the experience rather than the details of travel.
