The Iguassu Falls Tour – Argentina Side full-day tour is available in two options: shared or private. With the shared option you will travel with a group of up to 40 people. If you select the private option you will be able to enjoy more personal attention from your guide and take the tour at your own pace.
Whichever option you choose, you will be picked up from your Puerto Iguassu hotel in an air-conditioned vehicle and driven to the Iguassu National Park. A bilingual (English and Spanish) guide will accompany you.
Located on the Iguazú River, on the border between Brazil and Argentina, Iguassu Falls is one of world’s most impressive cataracts – 60 feet higher than Niagara and about 1 ½ times as wide.
The name Iguassu comes from the Guaraní Indian word meaning ‘great water’. This delightful tour allows you to experience the awesome spectacle of the Iguassu from close quarters on the Argentinean side of the river.
The horseshoe-shaped Falls are more than 1 ½ miles across and punctuated with cliffs and islets. The foaming water plunges down a drop of around 300 foot in a series of more than 270 separate waterfalls.
From the Visitor Center you can head down trails or ride a picturesque train. There are two basic circuits: an upper path and a lower path. If you choose to walk, you will be able to enjoy the rich flora and the beautiful birds, butterflies (over 500 types in the area) as well as other animals.
The lower path (Paseo Inferior) leads to the base of the Falls where the headlong crash of the torrent releases a thick mist into the air. The upper path (Paseo Superior) leads you around the top rim of the precipice and affords breathtaking views from a strategically placed catwalk.
During the tour you will see stupendous views of the following famous waterfalls of the Iguassu complex: Salto Floriano, Salto Deodoro, Salto Benjamín Constant, Salto Unión, Salto Escondido, Salto Mitre, Salto Belgrano, Salto Rivadavia, Salto Tres Mosqueteros, Salto Dos Mosqueteros, Salto San Martín, Salto Adán y Eva, Salto Bozzetti, Salto Ramirez, Salto Chico, Salto Dos Hermanos and Salto Alvar Nuñez.
At the end of an adventurous and exciting day you will be dropped back at your hotel.
