Iguazu Waterfalls from Argentina

Wider than Victoria Falls and higher than Niagara Falls, the falls of Iguazu are truly spectacular. They border Brazil, Argentina and Paraguay and can be viewed from the first two. Set in a national park where you can see orchids, toucans and many species of butterfly, a couple of days can easily be spent here admiring the falls, visiting the rainforest or just relaxing by your hotel's pool.

We highly recommend viewing from both countries as they give different persepctives, Argentina is the up close view whilst Brazil is the classic panoramic view.

Trip highlights

  • Walk along Iguazu river canyon
  • Devil's Throat Canyon
  • San Martin Island

Meet on arrival at Iguazu Airport and transfer to your hotel for two nights. In the afternoon, enter Iguazu National Park and visit the Argentinean side of the falls. Arrive at the visitor centre then board a gas-propelled train to the upper falls circuit and the stunning Devil's Throat, the most prominent and one of the highest falls. A strategic lookout point rests on the side of these falls. Take the scenic walk along the Iguazu River canyon via the lower circuit and the upper circuit to appreciate the exotic flora and fauna and feel the cataracts up close. You can take an optional adventure tour on inflatable boats three miles along the lower Iguazu River, crossing rapids to the Devil's Throat Canyon waterfalls (bookable locally, not included in the package price.)

Suggested Accommodation

After breakfast, visit the Brazilian side of the falls. Leave the Argentinian side and travel along the road that leads to the falls, crossing the National Park into Brazil. Walk along the paths and the catwalk that leads to the bottom of Devil's Throat. Be impressed by the first panoramic views of the falls, like the Two Sisters. Bozzeti, superior circuit, and San Martin Island, where the movie The Mission was filmed. Return to Argentina where the rest of afternoon is at leisure.
