Day 1 : Iguazu Falls Views
Rio de Janeiro to Iguazu Falls
The morning flight takes you to Iguazu Falls, and your first chance to see the 275 separate falls of the Iguazu River comes as you land. On arrival you will be met for an immediate tour of the Brazilian national park, where you can enjoy the majestic panoramic views of Iguazu from across the gorge. Options include viewing the falls from above with helicopter rides above them. In the late afternoon you transfer to your hotel with the evening free. Please be sure to wear appropriate clothing and footwear for Iguazu Falls, as the walkways, paths and yourselves become wet from the spray. Camera protection is also a good idea.
Day 2 : Mesmeric Iguazu
Iguazu Falls
After breakfast you cross to the Argentinean national park, where walkways allow you to experience the majesty of Iguazu from very close quarters. The undoubted highlight is the mesmeric experience of looking down into The Devil's Throat as the falling water pounds the bottom, creating the roar and mist that mean Iguazu Falls can be seen and heard for miles around. The afternoon finishes with the adventure boat ride which takes you right under the falling curtains of water. In the evening you may like to take in a Latin American Dance Show, or in the period around Full Moon, you can visit the falls to view Iguazu By Moonlight.
Day 3 : Flying Away from Iguazu Falls
Iguazu Falls to Rio & Away
With your flight away from Iguazu likely to be in the afternoon, you may have time to visit more of the attractions of the area. The Bird Park allows you close contact with toucans, macaws, humming-birds and huge butterflies, all free to fly around the huge aviaries. You could visit Itaipu Dam, until recently Itaipu the largest hydroelectric plant on earth, to hear the fascinating story of its construction. Some time after lunch, you will be picked up at your hotel for transfer to the airport. Your flight back to Rio (or Sao Paulo) may make a circuit of the falls on take-off, giving you a wonderful memory to finish your trip to Iguazu Falls with Brazil Adventure Tours.

Helicopter Flights - Iguazu Falls
Duration: 10 mins or 35 mins
The finest views of Iguazu Falls are the birds-eye ones, and a helicopter flight above them is perhaps the best way to appreciate the scale and magnificence of the 275 separate falls. Helicopters take off with 4 passengers from the heliport just outside the park gates on the Brazil side. There are two options for the flights. The 10min version takes you above the falls themselves, circling around the Devil's Throat and above the canyon leading to it. The 35min ride also takes you downstream on the Rio Iguazu to the junction with the mighty Rio Parana, then up orver Itaipu Dam, with views of rivers, rainforest, two bridges and three countries.
