Iguazu Falls Extension

UNESCO World Heritage-listed IguaƧu Falls

Trip rating
  • The spectacular Iguazu Falls are situated on the border of Argentina and Brazil and are a real highlight of any visit to this area of South America. The waterfalls consist of 275 separate falls and are surrounded by lush, tropical vegetation and national parks. The falls are the largest in the world by volume, and are higher than Niagara Falls. On our trip to Iguazu you will witness this awesome sight from both the Brazilian and Argentine sides of the falls and it will be up to you to decide which view is the more spectacular. It is a comparison between superlatives.

    The Iguazu Falls extension was amazing and being able to see the falls from both the Argentinean and Brazillian side was spectacular.  This three day extension gave us enough time to fully experience the falls and the local area.  It was a much better option than a fleeting option of a day.

     

    Enjoy the experience, soak up every moment, it is something you will not soon forget.
