The Brazilian side of Iguazu National Park is home to some incredible waterfalls and stretches over nearly half a million acres.
When we arrive at the Visitor Center, our private guide will kick off our trip around the park by leading you to one of the tour cars. We’ll then drive to the main paths which stretch over 1,200m of the park and sit above the Iguazú river. From here, you’ll get a panoramic view of the Argentine side of the falls: the perfect spot to take some photos.
Continuing along this route, you’ll get to see the Cañón del Río Iguazú, Salto Rivadavia, Tres Mosqueteros and many others. Towards the end of the route, you’ll also see the lower part of the river and the impressive Garganta del Diablo (Devil’s Gorge). The walkway ends beside Salto Floriano, from where you can take either a number of stairs or an elevator straight down to the car park or up to shops and restaurants.
Itaipu Dam is an incredible feat of engineering which sits on the Paraná river between Brazil and Paraguay, around 50km from the falls at Iguazú. We’ll make a brief stop at the Information Centre where you’ll get to see a documentary which tells the story of the dam’s construction.
You’ll then begin the tour of the dam, which lasts around 40 minutes and takes us through some of the most important parts of the dam including the retaining wall and turbine room. When we get to the highest point on the dam wall, we’ll be able to see the stunning lake it forms.
