Travel to spectacular Iguassu Falls National Park, a UNESCO World Heritage Site of 275 thundering falls on the border of Brazil and Argentina. Second in size only to Victoria Falls, this series of cataracts once prompted Eleanor Roosevelt to take pity on her country’s most famous falls, saying “Poor Niagara!” as she gazed upon mighty Iguassu.

Your experienced river pilots, who know these waters extensively, will give you a thrilling ride through some of the rapids, guiding you right up next to the splashing cascades.

Iguassu Falls, Brazil (Post-Trip)

FROM $1,399 PER PERSON | 3 DAYS | $466 PER DAY

When Eleanor Roosevelt first laid eyes on Iguassu Falls, she is famously said to have uttered, “Poor Niagara”! It’s easy to understand what overwhelmed the First Lady. This torrent of water separating Brazil and Argentina plunges over 200-foot-high cliffs in a roaring fury of water. (In fact, Iguaçu translates roughly from the local Tupi-Guarani into “great water.”) Judging from Ms. Roosevelt’s reaction, you’ll want to extend your expedition to view Brazil’s other breathtaking natural wonder. Explore the cataracts from both countries, getting as close to the falls as the spraying mist allows. Join us on this thrilling adventure!

Your Price Includes:

  • Included flights: 1 domestic flight from Iguassu Falls to Buenos Aires, or vice versa depending on itinerary
  • 2 nights' accommodations near Iguassu Falls National Park at the First Class Bourbon Foz do Iguaçu Hotel (or similar)
  • 4 meals: 2 breakfasts and 2 dinners
  • 4 sightseeing tours featuring both the Brazilian and Argentinean sides of the falls, a thrilling Macuco Safari Boat Ride, and a samba show
  • 1 UNESCO World Heritage Site: Iguassu Falls
  • All transportation while on tour

  • Services of a City Host and a regional expert
  • Tipping for drivers and local guides (excluding City Host)
