A wonderful 3-night activity to enjoy the falls and the nature in Iguazu

After being picked up from the hotel, we will embark on the legendary and rarely traveled National Route 101 that crosses the Iguazu National Park. We will head towards the Urugua-í Provincial Park, and literally, the journey will be the destination! This dirt road is the perfect place to capture the typical red earth roads in stark contrast with the incandescent green of the surrounding jungle. It will be easy to observe birds and find traces of wild animals.

Throughout the journey to the Urugua-í Provincial Park, we will make strategic stops in search of photographic opportunities. It is important to know that the probability of observing and photographing mammals in this environment is really low, so although we are always attentive and expectant, such a situation should be considered a marvel gifted to us.

Upon arriving at the park, we will take a short walk through the jungle. If we are lucky, we may see yacutingas, a species of bird endemic to this ecoregion and in danger of extinction. Photographically, we will emphasize textures and backlighting, opening ourselves to the possibility of macro photography of plants and arthropods, always considering the particular interests and photographic equipment of each participant.

A new asphalt route will lead us to La Lorenza, where we will share a delicious lunch overlooking the Paraná River. This excursion covers a total of 140 km traveled in a 4×4 vehicle.

Enjoy a wonderful 3-night tour including the visit to both sides of the amazing Iguazu Falls, and a unique full day tour in La Lorenza, to enjoy nature and photography. First two days, we will include the visit to Parque Nacional Iguazu, on the argentinian side, and then the Parque Nacional do Iguaçu, to enjoy the brazilian side of the falls. During these visits, you can add some great activities like boat navigations, helicopter rides, etc.

Then, you will enjoy a special activity in La Lorenza, led by Emilio White, a nature photographer, with whom we will explore the northern region of Misiones in search of jungle photographs.

Are you ready to enjoy the falls and the nature with our company?

 

 

Itinerary

DAY 1 - IGUAZU FALLS

Arrival to Iguazu and visit to Iguazu Falls Brazilian Side!

After arriving in Iguazu (you can arrive at Puerto Iguazu, IGR, or on the Brazilian side at Foz do Iguaçu, IGU), we will transfer you to your hotel. Choose from one of the excellent accommodation options we have available for you. After check-in, our guide will be ready to start the first activity in the area. Did you know that the Iguazu Falls were recently declared one of the 7 new wonders of the natural world? Well, let me tell you then, that today you will visit the Brazilian side of this incredible wonder of Planet Earth.

The tour takes half a day and is basically a bus tour through the jungle, with a 1500-meter walkway that offers an unparalleled panoramic view of the different waterfalls and the Devil’s Throat. The tour ends with a panoramic elevator and an excellent view from the terrace.

During this activity, you can add interesting options such as a helicopter flight or a river navigation, or extend the visit a bit more and visit the Bird Park. You can see these optional activities below.

After this activity, transfer to the hotel to rest, although you can also add some nighttime activity if you wish.

DAY 2 - IGUAZU FALLS

Visiting the argentinian side of the Iguazu Falls

Perhaps the most important part of the Iguazu Falls is the Argentine side. And this is based on the large expanse that the park offers, with its nearly 8 km of trails in three main circuits, which are the Devil’s Throat, accessible by the Ecological Jungle Train, the Lower Circuit, and the Upper Circuit. The tour begins with pick-up by our guide from your hotel. Transfer to the park with included admission to start the trail tour. The tour lasts all day, ending around 5:00 p.m. Of course, you can add an activity, such as the Great Adventure, a combination of a jungle truck tour and a boat ride to finish under the waterfalls, to add adrenaline to your visit. Return to the hotel and then free time in the evening, where you can add an activity like a Tango Show or enjoy a gastronomic experience with The Argentine Experience.

DAY 3 - IGUAZU FALLS

Visiting La Lorenza. Photography activity!

After breakfast, we will pick you up from your hotel, to enjoy an unforgettable experience in La Lorenza. Once there, and guided by a professional nature photographer, we will take you to two special locations that allow a combination of landscape and jungle photography. Early in the morning, we will head to the less-traveled National Route 101, located about 30 minutes from the city of Iguazú. This dirt road cuts through the national park and is the perfect place to capture the typical red earth roads contrasting with the lush green of the surrounding jungle. Being situated in the heart of this vast protected area, it will be easy to observe birds and find traces of wild animals, including the elusive jaguar. It’s important to note that the chances of seeing and photographing mammals in this environment are genuinely low, making it a considered a special gift or additional bonus.

Continuing our journey, we will head towards La Lorenza, a private reserve located about 40 minutes away. The goal here is to have a more intimate experience with the jungle. We will explore trails in search of photographic opportunities, emphasizing textures and backlighting, and opening up the possibility of macro photography of plants and arthropods. We will make brief stops in “hides,” increasing the chances of capturing some birds. An elevated deck will be the place where lunch awaits us and will allow us to capture the exquisite combination of the jungle and the Paraná River.

The itinerary can be adapted based on your interests, internal timing, and the photographic equipment you are traveling with.

Return to the hotel and rest. A night activity can be added to your program

Crisis managers who go the extra mile.

"Every derail was attended to promptly and cheerfully. We had an in-flight emergency needing a last minute change and Lucia and Ramiro were all over it. They turned what could have been a travel disaster due to airlines cancellations into a wonderful two day experience at Iguazu Falls. They are great! Thank you!

Iguazu Falls - last minute booking

"We had a last minute decision going to the Iguazu Falls enroute a visit to Rio. We flew from Canada and arrived São Paulo on 23rd Feb morning, and Foz do Iguazu at night time. During the time we were at São Paulo airport, we looked for Iguazu Falls tours the next day, coz we would leave for Rio on 25th Feb. What a blessing I found this website. Walter promptly arranged the tour for me at almost the closing of business hours. He followed up assuring the hotel pick up at 9am the next morning on 24th Feb. Joao was one of the best tour guides I had. With his guide, we saw the best parts of the Falls from both sides of Argentina and Brazil. While hiking the Argentina side trail, we saw monkeys, a poisonous snake, birds, butterflies catfish, lizards and many more. Joao explained to us how some of the endangered species were protected. Very interesting. Joao assisted us to go through customs. It was very smooth going from Brazil to Argentina and coming back. We were so much into taking photos we forgot about our lunch. We felt very sorry for Joao but he just kept going to all the best points so we could take our best pictures. Our apologies. When the trip was finished, Walter checked with us to make sure we were safely back to our hotel. I am very thankful to Walter and his team. Can't believe Mother Nature creating such a magnificent landscape, and we could see it without hassle last minute. Such a wonderful time! I would highly recommend Walter to everyone. Thanks again, Walter and Joao.

"We were picked up from our hotel on time and taken to Buenos Aires airport and everything went smoothly. Our driver and tour guide for the day Alex was waiting for us and took us to start our adventure. The iguaza Falls exceed everyones expectations they are wonderous. Alex took us on the upper trail first,then the boat ride of a life time to go into the falls we got soaked and were so 😊happy and you can buy a video after for $15us Alex then took on lower trail which i personally thought were the best. All in all Alex's trip was fantastic knew his stuff and explained everything we wanted to know.. Brilliant trip would recommend to everyone.

Best Service for Seeing Iguazu Falls

"Can't imagine a better, more seamless trip experience to Iguazu Falls. Communication with Lucia through the entire process was excellent, and each and every aspect of the adventure was better than we could have imagined. Everything was perfectly aligned and delivered without a hitch. We were a bit nervous about our driver getting us to the airport on time from the cruise port. We were originally scheduled to disembark at 7am, but we actually got off at 6:15 and right there was our driver!! And every other transport was equally as excellent. We loved our private Falls guide, Elisangela, who went the distance to ensure we had a truly wonderful experience. We are so so glad we decided to do both sides, and to spend the night in Iguazu. The Falls are beyond comprehension, and no pictures do them justice. Loved trekking around the area where every bend brought new amazing vistas and sounds. Yes, Devil's Throat is closed and will be for awhile, but that in no way detracted from our experience. Stayed at the Grand Panorama Hotel. Very lovely place only 3-minute walk from the main area with shops, restaurants, etc. Very convenient for getting out and about. We also appreciated the options for additional things to do in the area. We selected the Argentinian Dining Experience and the Bird Park in Brazil. The dining experience is something not to be missed! We had so much fun with the other guests and the two instructors/chefs/mixologists. Best filet mignon ever eaten, and that's saying a lot because we are Michelin star foodies! It was a memorable evening that we will be talking about for a long time to come!! And we enjoyed our time seeing some of the many birds of South America. Great conservation facility where the birds are well-taken care of and safe. Everything about our trip was top-notch! Couldn't recommend a better group of people to work with.
