IGUASSU FALLS.  It is challenging to describe the scale and beauty of Iguassu Falls.  You will be able to visit the falls from both the Brazilian and Argentinian side to be able to fully experience one of the “New 7 Wonders of Nature”. This is an adventure that should not be missed!

Monday, June 20 - This morning the group will have an early transfer from the Fairmont Copacabana to the Rio de Janeiro International Airport for your flight to Iguassu Falls (arranged by Marathon Tours & Travel).  After check-in at our hotel, the rest of the day is at your leisure.

‚ÄčTuesday, June 21 - After breakfast is a tour of the Brazilian side of the Falls.  Starting from the hotel, a moderate walk brings us high above the river to a series of galleries with breath-taking views.  Inside Iguassu National Park, we ride through the Macuco Trail in an open jeep-towed wagon permitting a free view of the fantastic scenery.  During the ride, we stop for those who wish to take a dip in one of the Falls (optional).  Next is the Macuco Safari, which an inflatable bi-motor boat will bring us up-river, passing the canyon to have a direct look at the rapids.  Rocks, wildlife and a spectacular green landscape complete the scenery until it reaches the great horseshoe known as the Devil's Throat.  To top the tour off, the pilot will give everyone a splash by navigating through the spray of one of the Falls! (breakfast included)

Wednesday, June 22 - This morning after breakfast, you will be treated to a tour of the Argentine side of the Falls.  First, we will cross the Tancredo Neves Bridge with its lovely view of the Iguassu Canyon heading towards Iguacu National Park.  Here we will visit the upper walkways, which allow a different perspective and more intimate contact with the Falls.  The highlight of the trip is a visit to the suspended platform at the very brink of the Devil's Throat! (breakfast included)

Thursday, June 23 - After breakfast this morning, the group will transfer to the airport for our flight back to Rio to connect with your international flight home. (breakfast included)
