Welcome to Paraná

With its efficient public transportation, innovative architecture and outstanding urban parks, the capital, Curitiba, exemplifies the state’s successes. Though no tourism magnet, the city's air of European culture and excellent restaurants make for a nice dose of Brazil at its most developed. Sunbathers and surfers sigh for Ilha do Mel and Parque Nacional do Superagüi, where large swaths of unspoiled rainforest and pristine coastline make for some of the least developed and most idyllic beaches in southern Brazil.

But it's Iguaçu Falls that has always earned the wonder and admiration of travelers, from indigenous tribes to Jesuit missionaries to modern-day tourists. The awe it inspires cannot be overstated.

Iguassu Falls Sightseeing Tour from Foz do Iguaçu

Leave Foz do Iguaçu behind and head into Iguacu National Park. One of the most incredible natural wonders on the planet, Iguassu is taller than Niagara Falls – and twice as wide – and consists of 275 cascading falls spread out over nearly 2 miles (3.2 km) in a horseshoe shape. The average flow of the waterfalls amounts to approximately 2.6 million gallons (10 million liters) per second.One of Iguassu’s most famous features, Devil´s Throat is the largest waterfall in the region and is best seen from the Brazilian side. Here, you'll 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 is the area famous for rainbows, and great photo opportunities abound!For a close-up view of the falls, you can walk through the subtropical forest of Iguacu National Park to the base of Salto Floriano. Here, you can take the elevator to the top of the falls, or walk out over the falls at Salto Union.But if the brazilian side is not enough for you and you are interested in a different perspective of the Iguassu Falls, try the option with the argentine side included!

$159 Outdoor Activities

Iguassu Falls Tour: Hike, 4x4 Jungle Ride, Waterfall Boat Ride

Following pickup from your hotel in Foz do Iguaçu, board your vehicle and head for Iguaçu National Park with your guide and tour group. Once you reach the park, jump in to an open-top electric wagon that drives through the jungle’s rugged roads. As the verdant rainforest whizzes by, listen to your guide point out varieties of natural flora like centenarian trees, bromeliads and orchids. Keep an eye out for the bird and animal life that is everywhere in the rainforest. Disembark the vehicle for a short hike down a hidden trail that ends at a beautiful 65-foot (20-meter) waterfall and refresh yourself (hike is optional). When your jungle ride is over, board an open-top off-road Jeep for a small drive to make your way down to the pier. At the pier board an boat headed upriver for spectacular, up-close views of Three Musketeers and Devil's Throat Falls. The boat maintains a relatively slow speed, which allows you to photograph and film the surrounding scenery. Prepare to get a bit very wet, since the mist from the thunderous water creates an almost-permanent heavy raincloud at the base of the falls and the boat may go underneath a waterfall. At the conclusion of your 2 5-hour adventure exploring the falls by land and water, return to your Foz do Iguaçu hotel for drop-off.
