The border between Brazil and Argentina is home to one of the world’s greatest natural phenomena.
In the midst of a subtropical nature reserve, the earth seems to open up and 275 separate falls crash over a horseshoe-shaped precipice, nearly five kilometres wide and 90 metres high.
Spectacular all year round, we recommend two days here to fully explore the falls on both the Argentinian and Brazilian sides.
Activites and wildlife
The network of walkways on the Brazilian side provides some wonderful panoramas of this powerful show, often framed by rainbows. The surrounding vegetation of the park is also home to a rich diversity of wildlife species, and so marvelling at the breathtaking views can be interspersed with close encounters with the array of birdlife and mammals, which includes tapirs, capuchin monkeys and the coatamundi, a relation of the racoon.
Other activities include a boat safari, which powers up the river to the foot of the falls (and sometimes beyond).
