Iguassu Falls on the Argentinean side

DESCRIPTION OF THE TOUR:

The Iguassu Falls were formed approximately 200 thousand years ago. Nowadays it is one of the most striking displays of natural wonders worldwide, attracting millions of visitors all year round. The Iguassu Falls has about 275 waterfalls, being most of them on the Argentine side.

The visitors will have a different view, top on the list of those wanting to visit the Iguassu Falls in all the extension of its breathtaking falls.

The Iguassu Falls on the Argentinean side is located on the district of Misiones; about 28 km (17.3 miles) from the centre of Foz do Iguacu, precisely inside the Iguazu National Park. The falls are the same, but the view is privileged. This is due to the fact that visitors get very close to hundreds of the falls, like the spectacular 80 meter-fall called the ‘ Devil’s Throat’, making it a magnificent experience to be remembered.

THE TOUR:

At the arrival, the tourists are welcomed, like on the Brazilian side, at a Visitors’ Centre featuring an excellent infrastructure with toilets, first-aid station, souvenir shops, and display boards about the biodiversity in the park. The place is an epitome of dedication and respect towards the tourist and nature.

Unlike the Brazilian side, the transport of the visitors from the Reception Centre through the Park is not made by coach, but by trains. Also, each tourist will receive a map at the entrance of the Park, because, instead of a trek, as it is done in Brazil, in Argentina there are 5 different treks, which make the tour much more adventurous with views of totally different angles of the Falls.

The first stop is on the ‘Cataratas Station’. From there, visitors can do a tour on the upper section, in other words, a tour above the Falls, with the length of approximately 1.100 meters walk, or visitors can opt for the lower section, which is done below the Falls.

Each circuit has its own peculiarity. Nevertheless, the climax of the tour by the Iguassu Falls on the Argentinean side is once again the ‘Devil´s Throat’. After completing a circuit of about 1km within blue carrion crows and wonderful species of butterflies, the visitor will come across a total view of the river and the magnitude of this particular fall. All this enhanced by a colourful rainbow criss-crossing the sky.

No wonder the Iguassu Falls is considered a World Natural Heritage and is contesting to be one of the 7 World Natural Wonders.

The tour can be made in two ways: Full Day- it has 3 circuits which takes about 6 hours or, Half Day- in which the Lower Circuit is not made, reducing like this the length of time spent of the tour to about 4 hours. The choice is yours.
