Iguazu falls

Natural wonder on the border between Argentina and Brazil

With no less than 275 cascades, the Iguazu Falls in Argentina and Brazil are undoubtedly the most impressive natural monuments in the southern hemisphere. This wonder of the world is the reason for many tourists to visit the area. Legitimate, but there is even more to experience and discover in this area.

Iguazu Falls, the impressive falls of Argentina

Iguazu is mainly known for the impressive falls of Argentina and Brazil. No surprise, because with an average height of 80 meters, the Iguazu Falls are higher and five times larger in size than the Niagara Falls in the U.S. Surrounded by an exuberant tropical rainforest, the water from the Iguazu river crashes down violently. In the evening, the red light of the setting sun gives it a magical glow. It's not weird that these falls are called one of the world wonders, it is indeed one of the most beautiful spectacles in the world. The falls can be visited from both Argentina and Brazil. To get a good impression of this natural wonder, we recommend visiting both sides.

The Mata Atlantica rainforest around Iguazu

The Iguazu falls are so impressive that people often forget that there is more to experience in this region outside Iguazu. The Iguazu falls are part of the Mata Atlantica rainforest in the Misiones region. The Mata Atlantica rainforest is a unique ecosystem with a totally different flora and fauna than the more famous Amazon rainforest. The area is home to more than 400 species of birds, tapirs, capuchin monkeys and the puma. In addition, the area is known for its archaeological Jesuit ruins. Visit the village of the indigenous Guaraní and learn more about the medicinal plants they still use. Kayak across the Parana river to a hidden fall and be pampered with a fully prepared picnic or discover the best kept secrets of the rainforest with a professional guide.
