Tour description provided by Viator

Make the most of your Iguassu Falls vacation and visit both the Argentinian and Brazilian side of the falls. Combine two sightseeing tours from Puerto Iguazu for a full day in both national parks – Iguaçu National Park and Iguazú National Park – where you’ll see incredible features like Devil’s Throat, the area’s largest waterfall.

Argentina Side: (visit 2 of the 3 circuits)
From Puerto Iguazú, you’ll travel first to Iguazú National Park in Argentina to explore the Lower Circuit, Upper Circuit and Devil's Throat.

The Lower Circuit is composed of a trail approximately 0.8 miles (1.3 km) long that allows you to get close to some of the smaller waterfalls on the Argentinian side. Walk along the trail, which is equipped with both restrooms and snack bars, and get close to the Carlos Bozzetti Waterfall, where you can take some great photos.

The Upper Circuit, which is wheelchair accessible, allows you to see the top of the majestic falls on the Argentina side and enjoy a breathtaking panoramic view of the area. The view stretches from the Argentinian falls to San Martin Island and parts of the Brazilian falls.

Devil's Throat is the largest waterfall in the region and where the largest amount of water pours through Iguassu Falls. At an impressive altitude of 350 feet (107 meters), Devil's Throat is a must-see Iguassu Falls feature. Thanks to the newly built catwalk, you can get pretty close to this site!

Brazil Side:
Then, leave Argentina and cross the border into Iguaçu National Park on the Brazilian side of Iguassu Falls. You'll get another close-up view of Devil´s Throat, which is best seen from the Brazilian side. Watch as 14 falls drop 350 feet (107 meters) with such force that a 100-foot (30-meter) tall cloud of mist stays permanently suspended overhead. This area is famous for its rainbow, and more great photo opportunities abound!

For a close-up of the falls, walk through the park’s subtropical forest to the base of Salto Floriano. Then take the elevator to the top of the falls, or walk out over the falls at Salto Union.
