Iguazu Falls

Located in the far north eastern tip of Argentina and set in over 2000 sq kms of sub-tropical rainforest and National Park, the Iguazu Falls are the most dramatic and awe-inspiring waterfalls in the world.

Why visit Iguazu Falls ?

  • See the awe-inspiring power of the Devil’s Throat falls
  • Enjoy some wonderful birdwatching in the National Park
  • Soak up the spray from the Macuco jet boat safari
  • See the engineering genius of the Itaipu Hydroelectric Dam
  • Take a heli flip over the falls for a stunning bird’s eye view

The Iguazu River which divides Argentina from Brazil flows over a basalt plateau and then splits into many channels and islands before plunging in a series of dramatic falls, swirling cauldrons of spray and cascades such as the gargantuan Devils’ Throat.

The falls can be seen from both the Argentinean and Brazilian sides of the border and this is perfectly possible in the same day and highly recommended as it offers two quite different perspectives of this extraordinary natural spectacle. There are viewing areas you can walk to and it is also possible to enjoy boat trips up close and personal to the falls or even do helicopter flips over the falls.

The Interior Atlantic Rainforest covers 270,000 hectares of beautiful protected forest and this straddles the border and is thus split into the Argentinean and Brazilian Iguazu National Parks. This sub-tropical rainforest is home to over 2000 plant species, countless insect species and 400 bird species including the colourful toucan, parrots and parakeets. There is also a wide variety of mammals and other animals including the tapir, capybara, coati and the rarely seen puma and jaguar.
