Itinerary

DAY 1 - IGUAZU FALLS

Arrive at Iguazu Airport (IGU or IGR) and proceed to your hotel for check-in. After completing the check-in process, we will embark on a half-day excursion to the Brazilian side.

Exploring the Brazilian side of the Iguazu Falls offers a stunning perspective of this natural marvel. As you approach the falls, you will be met with the thunderous roar of water cascading down the magnificent cliffs amidst verdant foliage. The Brazilian side provides sweeping vistas of the falls, allowing you to admire the grandeur and raw power of nature.

The pathways and observation decks along the Brazilian side offer excellent viewpoints to behold the immense curtain of water plunging into the gorge below. You will feel the mist on your skin and hear the harmonious sounds of nature as you traverse the trails and observation points.

A highlight of the Brazilian side is the iconic Devil’s Throat, where a vast amount of water descends into the abyss, creating a captivating spectacle. Standing on the platforms overlooking Devil’s Throat, you will witness the unbridled energy of the falls as torrents of water rush past.

The Brazilian side also presents opportunities for wildlife encounters, with a diverse array of flora and fauna thriving in the surrounding rainforest.

You have the option to partake in additional activities such as a helicopter tour or the Macuco Safari boat excursion. Please refer to the options listed below.

DAY 2 - IGUAZU FALLS

The Argentinian Side of Iguazu Falls

Following breakfast, we will commence our second exploration: the Argentinean Side, which offers the most comprehensive visit at the Iguazu Falls.

The pathways on the Argentinean side of Iguazu Falls offer an enchanting expedition through dense rainforest, granting intimate encounters with the tumbling waterfalls. Here are the primary trails awaiting your exploration:

Lower Circuit (Circuito Inferior): This pathway draws you nearer to the base of the falls, presenting breathtaking perspectives from the lower elevations. Along well-maintained trails and elevated boardwalks, you’ll traverse past numerous cascades, including the iconic Salto Bosetti and Chico. The Lower Circuit invites you to embrace the misty embrace of the falls and witness the tremendous force of the cascading waters.

Upper Circuit (Circuito Superior): On this route, you’ll ascend to elevated viewpoints that overlook the falls and the encompassing scenery. The Upper Circuit unveils panoramic vistas of the cascading waters, providing an alternate viewpoint from the lower levels. Here, you’ll witness the entirety of the waterfall ensemble and admire the vastness of the Iguazu River.

The most renowned and captivating segment of the Argentinean side is the Devil’s Throat. Accessible via a distinct trail and elevated walkway, this path leads you to the precipice of the park’s largest and most formidable waterfall. As you traverse the suspended walkways above the river, you’ll be serenaded by the thunderous roar of the water and enveloped by the rising mist from the chasm below.

For those craving a more daring escapade, the Macuco Trail beckons. This extensive trail winds through the verdant jungle environment, culminating at the Arrechea Waterfall. Along the way, opportunities abound for birdwatching and wildlife encounters amidst the symphony of flowing streams and diverse flora enveloping the trail.

Prepare for an unforgettable immersion in the natural splendor of the Iguazu Falls as we embark on our exploration of the Argentinean Side.

DAY 3 - FROM IGUAZU TO POSADAS

Visiting San Ignacio Mini Ruins

After breakfast, we will start our journey to the south of the Misiones Province to visit the famous San Ignacio Mini Ruins.

The San Ignacio Mini Ruins stand as a UNESCO World Heritage Site, bearing witness to the Jesuit Reductions, settlements crafted by Jesuit missionaries during the 17th and 18th centuries. These efforts aimed to Christianize indigenous communities while safeguarding them from exploitation.

Founded in 1632, San Ignacio Mini emerged as a pivotal Jesuit Reduction, fostering a self-reliant community where indigenous Guarani people thrived under Jesuit guidance. The settlement boasted churches, residences, workshops, and schools, embodying a fusion of European and Guarani architectural styles. Constructed from local red sandstone, the ruins showcase elegant yet straightforward structures, with the stone church commanding attention as the heart of the community.

Despite confronting colonial conflicts and the eventual expulsion of the Jesuits from Spanish territories, the Reductions endured, fostering cultural exchange and societal evolution.

Your journey will delve into the archaeological depths of San Ignacio Mini, where well-preserved remnants tell tales of bygone eras. Guided tours illuminate the significance of the Reductions, showcasing the region’s unique cultural and architectural legacy.

Following your exploration, our path leads to Posadas, the capital of Misiones province, where a night’s rest awaits in a 4-star hotel, complete with breakfast.

DAY 4 - FROM POSADAS TO IBERA WETLANDS

Arrive to Posada de la Laguna

Following breakfast, our journey will take us southward, traversing into the Corrientes Province. Traveling from Posadas to Posada de la Laguna Lodge in the Ibera Wetlands typically involves a journey by road, as there are no airports directly serving the lodge.

The journey by road can take anywhere from 4 to 6 hours, depending on the route and road conditions. The roads leading to the Ibera Wetlands may not always be in the best condition, so the journey might take longer than expected.

Along the way, you’ll pass through picturesque landscapes typical of the Argentine countryside, including vast plains, forests, and small towns.

Once you arrive at the lodge, you’ll be greeted by the serene surroundings of the Ibera Wetlands. The lodge offers various activities such as boat rides, wildlife watching, and guided nature walks to help you explore and appreciate the unique ecosystem of the wetlands.

"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.

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.
