The magnificent Iguazu Falls straddling the border of Brazil and Argentina are one of the most impressive and wonderful waterfalls to witness in the world. With 275 individual drops it is three times wider than Niagara Falls, in fact First Lady Eleanor Roosevelt remarked when she saw Iguazu for the first time, "Poor Niagara".
Besides Iguazu's sheer size, one thing that makes it really standout from the rest of the World’s great waterfalls is that the Brazilian and Argentinean side offer very different perspectives and we therefore have included visits to both sides on this tour. The Brazilian side provides the iconic panoramic view, perfect for admiring how impressive Iguazu is. You can even get close enough that the spray from the Falls will soak you (if you want to get that close of course). Whereas the Argentinean side offers multiple viewing points including from above the Falls so you can grasp how powerful the water is. There are even several walking trails here which allow you to explore more of the national park.
A trip to Brazil really is incomplete without visiting Iguazu Falls.

Start your Journey
See the Brazilian side of the Falls
You will be met at the airport and transferred to your hotel with an English-speaking driver/guide. Later depart from the hotel and visit the Brazilian side of the Falls. Walk along the paths that follow the cascades to the catwalk that leads close to the bottom of Devil's Throat. Here you will enjoy magnificent views and perhaps get wet from the spray of the falling water. Once you have finished exploring the Brazilian side you will be returned to you hotel for the evening where there are restaurants to select from for dinner or take a taxi in to the town.
The Argentine side of the Falls
After breakfast, depart the hotel and with a quick stop at border control (remember to bring your passport) you will cross the Tancredo Neves bridge over the Iguazu River, which forms the border between Brazil and Argentina. Once in Argentina take a scenic highway to the Argentinian Iguazu National Park. You will have plenty of time to explore this side of the Falls, wandering the different walkways and enjoying the different viewpoints. Afterwards take the Ecological Jungle Train to the most impressive observation point of the falls - The Devil´s Throat before returning to Brazil and your hotel.
After breakfast you will be taken to the airport for your onward journey. If you prefer to explore the area or just want to relax you can book extra nights at the hotel before departing.
