The Iguazú National Park covers an area of 67,000 hectares that was declared World Heritage Site by UNESCO in 1984. There are a total of 275 waterfalls falling from an average height of 70 metres. In this part of the Subtropical Jungle it is possible to observe the great variety of ferns, orchids, begonias, birds and butterflies; as well as the diversity of native species housed in the park. This tour visits the Argentinian side of the national park by taking the Ecological Train that travels through the jungle in about 18 minutes up to the Devil's Gorge Train Station. From there, and after a walk along a 1,100-metre long path, visitors arrive at the famous and imposing Devil's Gorge Fall. During the tour, you visit also the Upper and Lower Trails, which are catwalks detached from the jungle's surface so as to protect the fauna by preventing the disruption of their natural trails. These trails allow visitors to observe diverse waterfalls from a very short distance, such as the falls Dos Hermanas, Bosetti, San Martin and Peñón de la Bella Vista, offering a panoramic view of the Devil's Gorge Fall and the Iguazú River Canyon.
After crossing the International Bridge Tancredo Neves, that links Argentina and Brazil, this tour visits the Brazilian side of the national park, with a area of 185,000 hectares. Since most of the falls are located in the Argentinian side of the Iguazú River Canyon, the Brazilian side of the park offers the most spectacular panoramic views along its almost 3-kilometre long trail. Once at the Visitors Center the shuttle buses take you to the beginning of the trail. On both sides of the road, the lush subtropical jungle shows its splendour. The trail on the Brazilian side is 1,200 meters long over the gully of the Iguazú River. From this point it is possible to observe the Iguazú River Canyon, the Rivadavia and Three Musketeers Falls, among others. At the end of the trail you arrive at the lower balcony with views of the Devil's Gorge at a distance of 200 metres approximate.
