Argentina Iguazu Falls Tour & Boat Ride
Duration: 10 hours Easy Iguazu falls by boat
Why we love this tour
The famous Iguazu Falls tour with a boat ride is the best way to get up close and personal with some of the most spectacular waterfalls in the world
- Tour the upper, lower and the Devil's throat circuits
- Learn about the local fauna and flora from the professional bilingual guides
- Get to know one of the World's Natural Wonders
The four circuits (upper, lower, Devil’s Gorge and ‘The Great Adventure’) each give you unique and unforgettable views of the falls from different angles and perspectives, and the exhilarating boat ride takes you right up to the base of the falls.
See diverse native wildlife and lush forest as you follow trails and enjoy a unique truck ride on your unmissable trip to the Argentine side of the Iguazu falls
Once we’re through the entrance, we’ll head on to the main station (‘Estación Central’) where you’ll be able to hop on a train to either the falls station (‘Estación Cataratas’) or the Devil’s Gorge station (‘Estación Garganta del Diablo). The other way to reach the falls circuits (Upper and Lower) is via the 600m forest walkway (‘Sendero Verde’), which begins at the Visitor Center and takes you all the way to the falls station.
From here, you’ll be able to take the following trips:
The 800m of paths which make up the upper circuit are raised above the ground so as not to damage the native wildlife. On this route, you’ll see the waterfalls in the upper section of the park such as Dos Hermanas, Bosetti, Bernabé Méndez, M’Bigua and many others. Tour duration: 1 hour Difficulty: low, no stairs.
This 1,600m route, also raised above the forest floor, gives you incredible views of the falls from both above and below. You’ll see Dos Hermanas, Alvar Núñez, San Martín, Bosetti, and even Peñón de la Bella Vista, from where you’ll get a panoramic view of the Devil’s Gorge and the Cañón del Río Iguazú Inferior. Getting this close to the waterfalls makes for a truly unforgettable experience, and on this circuit you’ll also have the chance to visit San Martín Island. Tour duration: 2 hours Difficulty: moderate, stairs.
From the falls station, the train heads towards the Devil’s Gorge station which sits about 20 minutes away. The walking route is around 1,200m long and leads to the main viewing points along the biggest and most spectacular falls in Iguazu, right up to the main event: la Garganta del Diablo (Devil’s Gorge). Tour duration: 2 hours Difficulty: low, no stairs.
"The Great Adventure"
This trip is split into two parts, the first of which consists of sailing in zodiac boats right up to the base of the San Martín, Bosetti, Tres Mosqueteros and Cañón de Garganta del Diablo (Devil’s Gorge) waterfalls, as well as through the river rapids to arrive at Puerto Macuco (3km from the falls). We’ll then move onto the second part of the adventure in which we’ll get to ride in a truck through 8km of thick jungle, hearing all the while about the flora and fauna of the area from our specialist guides.
