Included Activities

Visit to Brazilian Falls with Adventure Safari
Head out on this exciting exploration of the Iguazu National Park. Start down a descending trail into the canyon and make your way to a vantage view point offering splendid visuals of the UNESCO World Heritage site of Iguazu Falls. Step into a glass elevator that will transport you to a viewing platform. Savor stunning vistas of more than 240 falls gushing down simultaneously. After soaking in the views to your heart’s content, browse through the colorful displays of food and crafts at the artisans fair. Later, wind your way to the safari entrance gates to board wagons towed by open jeeps. Enjoy the beautiful scenery as you traverse the nearly two-mile trail. Listen to your guide narrate interesting details about the region’s flora and fauna. You can choose to hike the ancient rock stairway that leads up to the scenic Macuco Falls. Travel on to the safari dock on the river to slip on a life vest before you board a sturdy inflatable bi-motor boat. Use the plastic containers provided to waterproof your cameras and other electronic equipment. Settle in to enjoy views of the canyon, unique rock formations, and the lush vegetation as the boat rushes upriver. Savor breathtaking views of Iguazu Falls from the horseshoe-shaped Devil’s Throat section. Feel the cool spray of water soak you as your pilot steers the boat right into the falls! (Half Day; Duration: 4 hrs; Private Activity; Fitness Level: Easy. Please bring along a change of clothes as the water spray from the falls can leave you soaking wet. Lockers are available at the pier.)

Visit to the Argentine side of Iguazu Waterfalls
Gain a deep perspective of the breathtaking waterfalls, recently named one of the seven natural wonders of the world. Three sets of trails and walkways allow you to explore the natural beauty of the falls and the surrounding jungle as you walk through the national park. On the lower circuit take in a view of the falls from below, feeling part of the natural surroundings, and sensing their great magnitude. The upper circuit takes you above the falls where you get a different perspective of the same waterfalls you just saw on the lower circuit. And no visit to Iguazu is complete without viewing the Devil’s Throat Falls, where you stand just feet from the thundering cascades of water tumbling to depths below. (Time: 0900 to 1500; Private Activity)
