Iguazu Falls - The Brazilian side Holidays

Find yourself utterly awestruck by the power and magnificence of one of the world’s greatest natural wonders: the Iguazú Falls. There’s a reason why people flock from all over the world to witness this incredible sight; why not see for yourself on your own Iguazú Falls holiday?

Four times the width of the Niagara Falls, with 275 cascades spanning both Brazil and Argentina’s borders - and stretching nearly 3km in distance - the Iguazú Falls are dazzling from whichever side you see them. One of the most unique - and breathtaking - waterfalls in the world, the cascades were created when an immense volcanic eruption created a huge crack in the earth, causing the Paraná River to gush over the crevice in the mesmerising spectacle we see today.

Witness one of South America’s natural wonders on an Iguazú Falls holiday

The falls lie between Brazil and Argentina, in a vast, rainforest-cloaked National Park, teeming with tropical flora and fauna. You can reach the falls with ease from both the Brazilian and Argentinian borders - but each offer a completely different perspective (we recommend visiting both). Discover our Argentinian Iguazú Falls tours here.

The Brazilian side provides the iconic panoramic view, perfect for admiring the sheer immensity and splendour of this natural wonder. Wander out on one of the wooden walkways - some take you further out to give a real panorama of the cascades, on others you’ll get close enough to feel the spray on your face.

This is a sight that no photo can truly do justice - to really experience this spectacle, you’ll have to visit yourself. Get in touch with one of our Destination Specialists so we can begin crafting you an unforgettable Iguazú Falls holiday
