Iguazu Falls - The Brazilian side Holidays

Two miles of cascading falls

These majestic, mesmerising falls are simply awe-inspiring. Four times the width of Niagara Falls with 275 cascades spanning both Brazil and Argentina’s border, Iguazu Falls are dazzling wherever you see them from.

The Brazilian side of the Falls offers a wonderful panoramic view, We love the panoramic views of the falls from the Brazilian side. To wander out on a walk way, taking you as close as you can get to the water falling down, here feel the spray wash across you and take some fantastic photos. You will need to be prepared to get a little wet when walking her.

The Argentine side of the Falls offers a different perspective, this is the side where you can walk through the national park, seeing the Falls from many different angles and positions.

Both sides are worth visiting to get the best overall experience.
