Argentinean side of the Falls - Approximately 6 – 7 hours
With a total area of 55,500 ha, Iguazu National Park is named after the river that marks its northern boundary. There, in the midst of a lush sub-tropical jungle, is majestic Iguazu Falls, one of the planet’s largest and most spectacular on account of the river’s powerful flow and its more than 275 drops. You will venture into the midst of its drops and falls, following a pathway of raised footbridges, thereby being able to appreciate this wonder from many different angles. The lower circuit puts you so close to the water that you will feel a part of nature and the constant mist will cool you off. At the top circuit, you will stop at different lookouts, climbing until you reach the incredible “Garganta del Diablo”, Devil’s Throat, undoubtedly the most spectacular of all the falls, whose waters drop more than 80 meters.
Option 1: River adventure – 12 minutes (Argentina)
Your river adventure begins at the docks located at the end of the lower circuit, across from San Martin Island, where a powerful speed boat await to take you into the lower canyon of the Iguazu River and to circle the island until you reach the base of Tres Mosqueteros Drop, where you will be able to see drops on both the Brazilian and Argentine side, as well as the Garganta del Diablo. The icing on the cake is a visit to the Argentine side of the falls, where you will “baptized” at the bottom of the San Martin Drop, the largest a boat can approach.
Difficulty: 100m staircase.
Option 2: The Great Adventure – 1 hour (Argentina)
In a ride that combines rainforest and falls, you will enter the lush jungle vegetation in trucks accompanied by experimented guides. After the ride, you will walk to the docks to board a boat that will take you to the lower Iguazu River. As you shoot the rapids, you will get a great view of the drops from the haven of San Martin Island to Tres Mosqueteros Drop, including a panoramic view of the Garganta del Diablo. The boat will then circle the island until reaching the most exciting part of the trip: San Martin Drop, the largest a boat can approach.
