Feel the thunderous force of one of nature's greatest wonders

Twice as wide and a third taller than Niagara, the Iguazu Falls are one of South America's most extraordinary sights. Vast torrents of water thunder over a horseshoe-shaped natural fault in the Iguazu River, bordering Brazil and Argentina amid subtropical rainforest, in which over 2,000 species of plants and hundreds of types of animals thrive. More than two hundred and fifty separate waterfalls are spread out along 1.7 miles of the river, the most famous of which is the awesome Devil's Throat. At 700 metres long and over 80 metres high, it is undoubtedly the epicentre of the action, where visitors are soaked by the constant spray caused by the incomprehensible and unrelenting volume of water which pours over the the side and into the foamy abyss. Here, rainbows regularly form to add the finishing touch to a spectacular show.

Insights - The Two Sides of the Falls

It is best to experience the falls on both sides, to see the falls from different vantage points . On the Argentinean side there are three major trails to view the waterfalls: the High Trail is set along the top of the waterfalls; the Lower Trail runs long the river at the bottom of the falls; and the Garganta Trail takes you along a 2 kilometre walkway to view the deepest waterfalls from above. Stop at the Argentine Interpretive Centre for useful information on the falls and surrounding flora and fauna and take a boat trips on the river to watch the waterfalls from below. On the Brazilian side you view the falls head-on with a panoramic view and walk to the deepest point.
