Iguazu Falls - The Eighth Wonder Of The World

This is an absolute must for first time visitors to Argentina. Our tour takes in both the Brazilian and Argentinean sides of the falls.
We can offer you various tour types for both small groups or with a private expert guide on both sides of the falls. We offer walking, cycling, various wildlife and birding options but also boat rides and helicopter rides to ensure you see this dramatic spectacle in full.

Day 1 – Arrive in Iguazú Falls
Visitors to the falls can enjoy the views and feel the vibrations that rock the surrounding earth of one of the most awe-inspiring experiences in the natural world in many different ways: from strolling along innumerable walkways on both the Argentine and Brazilian sides with thrilling vistas above and below the falls, giving you the feeling you are floating mere inches above the tumbling waters, to nail-biting sorties right into the mouth of the gorge in rubber dinghies which threaten to toss the occupants into a furious cauldron only metres away. And in case you did not get wet enough then, the return trip darts under other falls, surging through drenching white mists and streams worthy of a fireman’s hose on full to leave you spluttering yet exhilarated.
