Iguazu Falls Mate Tour

Enjoy a traditional visit to the amazing Iguazu Falls, and explore a bit more about the culture, the Mate and nature in La Lorenza

Our three-night program includes classic visits to both national parks to see the Iguazu Falls, both from the Argentine and Brazilian sides. Both parks are excellent and offer different perspectives of the same natural attraction. Declared by UNESCO as a World Heritage Site and one of the New Seven Natural Wonders of the World, the Iguazu Falls are a must-see during your visit to South America. To this traditional program, we add a very interesting activity at the La Lorenza complex, located very close to Puerto Iguazu, where you can enjoy nature and learn more about Yerba Mate, the typical traditional drink of Argentina, Uruguay, Paraguay, and southern Brazil: Mate.

Iguazu Falls: The Argentina Side

After breakfast, we will start our second visit in the area of Iguazu Falls. We will visit the argentinian side of the falls. Yes, the Nationa Park is called Parque Nacional Iguazu, and offers around 8 kilometers of walkways in three primary circuits: the Devil’s Throat, accessible via the Ecological Jungle Train, the Lower Circuit, and the Upper Circuit. The excursion commences with our guide picking you up from your hotel. Transportation to the park, inclusive of admission, marks the inception of the trail exploration. The excursion spans the entire day, concluding at approximately 5:00 p.m. Naturally, you have the option to incorporate an activity such as the Great Adventure, blending a jungle truck tour with a boat excursion culminating beneath the cascades, enriching your visit with adrenaline.

DAY 3 - IGUAZU FALLS

Visiting La Lorenza: Taste the Mate

Finally, after breakfast, we will begin our last activity. It starts with pick-up by our vehicle from your hotel, to take you to La Lorenza. Once there, we venture into a jungle trail, abundant in plant and bird species. Along this interpretative walk, we invite you to observe some natural processes that make this ecosystem so dynamic and unique. A typical Misiones-style house is the perfect place to delve into the local culture and present our national drink: mate. In front of a small fire, we prepare with our own hands this popular infusion. We share the history and tradition of this popular beverage: the Guarani, the influence of the Jesuits, the current production of yerba mate, and the secret importance of this infusion for Argentinians. The visit concludes in our gallery overlooking the imposing Paraná River, with something delicious to taste.

The route has no slopes and is of LOW difficulty. Please inform in advance of health problems and allergies, as well as dietary restrictions. The tour is not available for children under 6 years old.

The activity lasts between 3 and 3.5 hours, plus the time it takes for transfers. So, we can conclude that it is a 5-hour activity. It can be done in the morning between 8:00 am and 12:00 pm or in the afternoon from 4:00 to 7:30 pm (in winter, the activity is done from 2:30 to 6:00 pm).

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.
