Iguacu Falls, Brazil

Iguazu Falls

Comprised of 275 individual waterfalls and cataracts that spout as much as 13,000 cubic metres of water every second, the roaring Iguazú Falls produce an awe-inspiring cloud of multicoloured mist that hovers over the inland rainforest that is shared by both Argentina and Brazil.

More About Iguazu Falls

Argentina, Paraguay and Brazil meet where Rio Iguazu joins the Rio Parana in the north-eastern Argentinean province of Misiones. It is here that the two-mile-long Iguazu Falls are formed as the rivers plunge into the wide gorge below.

The wider Iguazu National Park is a subtropical rainforest that is brimming with wildlife and plant species, including tapirs, howler monkeys, giant anteaters, caimans and jaguars. A named natural wonder in a tropical setting, the falls are one of the nation’s most revered sights and provide an ideal gateway for crossing into Brazil.

Paul Bird

Paul has visited Argentina several times, taking in everything from the mighty Iguazu Falls to the dazzling Perito Merino Glacier. According to him, any country that boasts one of Earth’s most dramatic waterfalls, magnificent salt flats, exquisite wines and a vibrant capital is more than worth a visit.

James Armitage

This epic country offers extraordinary landscapes, from the flat Pampas to rugged Patagonia and the lofty Andes. One of James’s recommendations is to head to the north-west of the nation to experience the very different Andean culture based around Salta.

I just wanted to say a HUGE thank you to you and your team for looking after us so well! Who could have foreseen electric storms (according to the locals in Buenos Aires – the worst in 10 years!) and the civil unrest in Chile.  You couldn’t have looked after us better if you had been on the spot! We had an AWESOME adventure – your advice and suggestions were bang on the nail every time. Each hotel was better than the next and the cruise was FANTASTIC, the scenery throughout the trip was amazing!
