For many of the visitors staying in Puerto Iguazu, there is one major attraction on the itinerary: The incredible Iguazu Falls. In order to make the most of this breathtaking natural attraction, a guided tour can be helpful. You’ll experience multiple vantage points, excellent hiking opportunities and the chance to see the waterfalls in a way that few visitors ever have the chance to do.
The full day adventure begins from your hotel in Puerto Iguazu, where you will travel with a professional local guide to the Iguazu Falls. While these falls straddle the border of Argentina and Brazil, and are known by the name of Foz do Iguaçu on the Brazilian side, this tour focuses on the beauty of the Argentinean falls. Climb aboard the Train of the Forest, which will take you to close to the falls themselves and offer some incredible views.
This is the chance for you to tour independently and determine how best to see Iguazu Falls with your free time. For some, a gentle hike with lots of photography opportunities close to the top of the falls is ideal. For others, something more challenging might be desirable. You could, for example, find the overhang known as Devil’s Throat, or Garganta del Diablo. As the river begins its thundering descent, you’ll have magnificent views all the way into Brazil.
Miles of hiking trails beckon, and they are clearly signposted for length as well as difficulty. After you have worked up an appetite, you can fill up at one of the restaurants located in the Iguazu Falls Park. If you opt to dine at a picnic table and continue enjoying the views, don’t be surprised if you are joined by local exotic birds that call the area home. Relax on the journey back to Puerto Iguazu, knowing that the rest is well deserved after a day of exploration.
