  • PRE - IGUAZU FALLS EXPERIENCE - G2 CODE: BUEL40

    Experience the extraordinary natural beauty and wildlife of South America during this memorable journey to Iguazú Falls ~ one of the great natural wonders of the world and a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

    The Iguazú River Delta is located in the center of a sub-tropical forest spanning 457,000 acres, and possesses unique characteristics that have made it an important economic and ecological reserve for its neighboring countries. On this pre cruise adventure you will visit the northeastern section of Argentina - an area that is inhabited by over 400 different varieties of birds and marks one of the most beautiful landscapes of the world.

    80m high and 3km wide, the Iguazú Falls span the border between Argentina and Brazil and is made up of many cascades that generate vast sprays of water producing one of the most spectacular waterfalls known to mankind.

    DAY 1

    Arrival of your international flight to Ezeiza International Airport, Buenos Aires

    Proceed through Customs and claim your luggage. You will be met according to your flight details and transferred to your hotel.

    The day and evening are at your leisure.

    Check in time is 3:00pm. Although every effort will be made to have the rooms available earlier, this cannot be guaranteed. If you are arriving early you may wish to book an extra night to guarantee immediate check-in.

    Dinner tonight is on our own.

    Overnight at the Sheraton Buenos Aires or similar hotel

    Your "Club Room" at this hotel offers a higher level of comfort than the standard room. The rooms are located on the top 6 floors of the building, with panoramic city or river views; upgraded amenities, complimentary bottled water, access to the Club lounge and a separate check in area. The Club lounge offers complimentary breakfast, afternoon snacks and beverages.

    *We recommend you pack one light overnight bag per person. Allowance: one checked bag per person maximum 15 kg/33lbs and one carry on per person maximum 5kg/11lbs. Any excess luggage will be stored at the hotel in Buenos Aires where you will receive it upon your return.

    Upon arrival, you will be met by your local guide and then transferred to Iguazú Falls National Park. A buffet lunch will be served at La Selva Restaurant shortly after your arrival.

    Following lunch, enjoy a motorized boat cruise (zodiacs) which allows you to view the falls from water level and get close enough to feel the spray and energy created by this great mass of falling water. Please note that you will get wet on the zodiacs. Along the way, your guide will explain all about the trees, birds, falls and more. Note: the zodiac loading area is not accessible to wheelchairs. There are approximately 100 steps down / up to reach the boats with no ramps. The zodiac tour is optional and any guests wishing to remain ashore can do so. There are shaded areas and benches to sit on throughout the park.

    The name Iguazú means Great Waters in Guarani. This natural wonder is taller and twice as wide than Niagara Falls and combines 275 falls in a massive, magnificent cascade stretching for nearly 1.7 miles. Situated on the border between Argentina and Brazil, its waters pass over lush, sub-tropical greenery. One of the most breathtaking sights you may see during your tour is the fluttering of more than 700 species of butterflies that make this area their home.

    After the zodiac tour, check-in at your hotel and enjoy some free time to relax before dinner.
