You will be able to see the incomparable beauty of the falls from across a 1,200m path, with several balconies and a runway over the river up to the Devils Throat, where besides getting wet with the mist, you get the closest view of the greatest falls in South America.

Day 5
Iguassu Falls
Enjoy a full day tour today of the Argentinian side of the falls. After a short ride on a tourist train through the lush forest, you set off on foot along the upper and lower walking circuits of the national park.

The upper trail is a series of bridges and platforms that take you across the Upper Iguassu River. The path goes deep into the jungle but suddenly opens out into a breathtaking amphitheatre of immense free-falling water. This is the Garganta del Diablo (Devil’s Throat), the main fall, where more than 12,000 cubic meters of water cascade every second! Later enjoy another evening at leisure.
