Day 1: Arrive in Iguazu (Argentine side)
You will be picked up at the airport and transferred to your hotel, where you will check in for a 3 night stay.
Day 2: Full Day Argentina Falls
For your first view of the falls we drive to the Argentine side of the Iguazú National Park and stroll along the lower Circuit. Follow over a kilometre of paths that take you under the famous ‘Devil’s Gorge’ – underneath small splashing waterfalls to the heart of the cascading falls. Be prepared to be enveloped in the clouds of fine spray rising from the raging torrent!
You will continue on by a small train that chugs cheerfully through the rainforest, under thick foliage inhabited by butterflies and lizards with the sounds of the birds and monkeys filling the air! At Estacion Garganta there is a pathway that rises at the other end the Devil’s Gorge which leads you to a stunning viewpoint looking out over the upper lip of the falls. Devil’s Gorge is possibly the most spectacular of the 275 waterfalls that make up this complex.
The Iguazu River flows down from the Serra do Mar mountain in Parana, Brazil opening out into a 4km wide horseshoe shape. The sudden deep drop was caused by a geological fault some 200,000 years ago, and it’s estimated by geologists that the actual edge has moved around 23kms from its point of origin and will continue to do so.
Day 3 Half Day Brazilian Falls
Your tour today will take you across the border (please ensure you have the correct documentation if required).
The Brazilian side of the falls offers a more panoramic view than the close up on the Argentine side, with a walkway that descends past several overlooks to a catwalk over the falls, allowing you to really get a sense of the power of the rushing water (prepare for a soaking if you choose to go all the way out). From the end of the main walkway, an elevator whisks you back up to street level at the top of the cliff (there’s also a trail up to the street for those who prefer not to wait in line for the lift).
At the end of your tour you will return to Peurto Iguazu, Argentina.
Day 4: Depart Iguazu
There are few waterfalls as majestic as Iguazu and leaving this stunning location is hard but even the greatest of things must come to an end. You will be taken to the airport to connect with your onward flight.
