Our tour to Iguazu begins departing from Buenos Aires by plane. Once you arrive at the International Airport of Cataratas del Iguazu you will be welcomed by our bilingual tour guide who after explaining you in detail the activities you will be taking will drive you to hotel. The rest of the day will be free for you to relax and explore the town of Puerto Iguazu on your own.
After having a delicious buffet breakfast at the hotel, we will pick you up at the lobby of your hotel in order to start a full day excursion to the Argentine side of Iguazu Falls which is truly superlative and a treasure for bird and animal lovers. Butterflies, toucans, plush-crested jays, night herons and snowy egrets are all common sights.Throughout the park lemur-like coatis abound, while higher up, capuchin monkeys and squirrels inhabit the forest’s canopy. During this tour you will be guided around several paths inside the National Park to witness the incredible view of more than 200 falls like the stunning San Martin Falls, the Green Way, the Upper and Lower Catwalk and the Devil´s throat paths using the forest train. To sum up it is a captivating guided tour along the parks two main trails: the Upper and the Lower: the choice is between straddling the falls from above or coming up close to where the water cannons into rocks below – both are beautiful viewpoints. In the evening we will drop you off in your hotel.
After having your breakfast we will pick you up in your hotel again to combine two great sightseeing excursions on this cross-border day trip from Puerto Iguazu to the Brazilian side of Iguassu Falls and the Itaipu Dam. First, you will start the day enjoying a guided sightseeing tour of Iguacu National Park along the Brazilian walkway, which starts in front of Hotel das Cataratas and goes to Salto Floriano the heart of the sub-tropical jungle.
You will visit Devil´s Throat, the largest waterfall in the region and one best seen from the Brazilian side of Iguassu Falls. Here, you'll watch as 14 falls drop 350 feet (107 meters) with such force that a 100-foot (30-meter) tall cloud of mist stays permanently suspended overhead. This area is famous for its rainbow, and great photo opportunities abound! The panoramic view is unbeatable since the walkway circuit is directly in front of the waterfalls.
Then, we will head over to Itaipu Dam and we will explore the largest operational hydroelectric power plant in the world. The dam wall of the power station is a whopping 200m high and when you go inside you stand on a platform near the top with a massive 140m drop at your feet. It generates a power of 12,600 megawatts, approximately 25% of the electricity consumed by Brazil and 95% of the energy consumed by Paraguay. This is a stunning piece of modern architecture and will allow you to learn about its construction, its environment impact and its importance to the people of Brazil and Paraguay. The sheer size of the Itaipu Dam will leave you speechless for sure! At the end of the tour we will drop you off at your hotel.
