Iguassu Falls Day Tour from Puerto Iguazú with Waterfall Boat Ride
Iguassu Falls Day Tour from Puerto Iguazú with Waterfall Boat Ride information and booking
Tour description provided by Viator
See the mighty Iguassu Falls from every angle of the Argentinian side on a full-day tour from Puerto Iguazú. Take a walk through the mist at the base of the falls, then follow the upper path for amazing panoramic views. And bring your wet-weather gear for an amazing boat ride under the falls, which was named one of the New Seven Wonders of Nature in 2011. Add on a jungle-truck ride through Iguazú National Park to enjoy even more amazing views, flora and fauna.
After being picked up from your hotel, travel the short distance in a comfortable coach with your guide to Iguazú National Park, where you'll spend your day on the Argentinian side of Iguassu Falls.
Don't forget your camera, as there’s nothing quite like this natural wonder, one of the New Seven Wonders of Nature, where Argentina, Brazil and Paraguay meet. You’ll be amazed as 400,000 gallons (1.5 million liters) of water a second plummet onto the rocks below in a network of more than 270 waterfalls.
When booking, choose from the following two options (both options are a total of eight hours in duration; the boat ride with the jungle-truck option is slightly different, as it starts at the location where the jungle ride ends).
Tour with boat ride only:
Then, get ready for the ultimate Iguassu Falls experience: a boat ride through the falls! Expect to get wet and be thrilled by this up-close encounter, after which you’ll dry off and be taken back to your Puerto Iguazú hotel.
Experience both the jungle and the waterfalls of Iguazú National Park with this tour option. Hop on an off-road vehicle for a thrilling 5-mile (8-km) safari-like ride through the tropical forest, and marvel at the abundant variety of trees and flowers, including palm, ficus, palo santo, orchids and bromelia. Watch for butterflies of vivid colors in the foliage; maybe you’ll spot the red, black and white ones sporting a curious pattern on its wings in the shape of the number 88.
The jungle-truck ride ends at Macuco Port, where you’ll climb aboard a motorboat and cruise for 4 miles (6 km), the last mile of which you will zip through the rapids of Iguassu River Canyon. Approach tantalizingly close to several waterfalls, including Three Musketeers, U-shaped Devil’s Throat and the impressive San Martin falls. Disembark and take a break at San Martin Island, after which you’ll be taken back to your Puerto Iguazú hotel.
